The new year opens with a triumph for the Scorpion brand: for the 7th time in a row, the Abarth 595/695 model range has been awarded the title of “Best Car” by the prestigious magazine “Auto Motor und Sport”. With 26.1% of the votes, the Abarth icon won the Mini Cars/Import category, one of the twelve categories into which the competition is divided.
For the 46th time, the “Best Cars” competition asked readers of “Auto Motor und Sport” to name their favorite cars on the German market. More than 100,000 readers cast their vote, choosing from 387 models currently on the market, divided into 12 categories, each with a special classification for imported cars.
The victory in the “Best Cars 2021” competition is further confirmation of the international success of these small and sporty cars, and of the passion for the Scorpion brand in the German market. For this reason, the Italian brand expresses its pride for this achievement and thanks the expert and passionate readers of the specialized magazine who have chosen, for the 7th time in a row, the Abarth 595/695 range.
The secret of the success of its cars lies in the two souls of the brand, performance and style, that also characterize the latest novelties of the brand: the Abarth F595 and the Abarth 695 Esseesse. The first is the special series dedicated to the youngest costumers of the Scorpion brand, who are seeking performance and are fans of technology, and is equipped with the high-performance 1.4-liter Euro 6D-Final-compliant T-jet engine, the basis for the Formula 4 single-seaters. It also pays homage to the “Formula Italia” single-seater, created by Carlo Abarth in 1971. More information at the following link.
Abarth 695 Esseesse is a limited series, whose name has its roots in the history of the brand, referring directly to its early days when the 1960s tuning kits made a fortune for Carlo Abarth, establishing him as the inventor of tuning for mass production cars. Inspired by the 1964 model, the Abarth 695 Esseesse is, therefore, the perfect combination of exclusivity and sportiness, as demonstrated by the aluminium bonnet which lightens and modifies the weight distribution of the car, and by the “Spoiler ad Assetto Variabile” that improves aerodynamics.
