Abarth 595 Yamaha Factory Racing Edition has been released to celebrate Abarth's position as an Official Sponsor and Car Supplier to the FIM MotoGP Championship. The hatches will be produced in only 595 examples and they are actually a result of the partnership with Yamaha, the champion riders Valentino Rossi and Jorge Lorenzo.
The cars will be offered in seven different exterior colors and will feature a lot of charming equipment for the exterior and interior, that will enhance its sporty nature.
Except for the seven exterior paint schemes, the car also features as an option a matching Abarth side stripes and mirror covers. Regardless of the choice of external appearance, every Abarth 595 Yamaha Factory Racing Edition will ride on 17-inch matt black alloy wheels, behind which will sit painted in red brake callipers.
Xenon headlamps are another special benefit of this exclusive model. All rear windows have been darkened windows, for sportier and more menacing appearance.
Inside, the Yamaha Factory Racing Edition benefits from leather upholstery for the interior, flat-bottom leather steering wheel, aluminium pedals and special 'Yamaha Factory Racing' badge. The occupants will also enjoy dual zone air conditioning.
The tiny dimensions of the Abarth have nothing to do with its engine's powerful capabilities. In contrast, the unit is so potent, that it produces more than 160 hp (118 kW) and 230 Nm (170 lb-ft) of torque. The powerplant is the updated 1.4-litre T-Jet engine, which shows better results due to the addition of Record Monza exhaust system, Koni shock absorbers with FSD valves and Eibach lowering springs.
Abarth 595 Yamaha Factory Racing Edition has a starting price of £17,420.
