What's all this about?

Abarth is celebrating its position as official sponsor and car supplier to the FIM MotoGP Championship with a new of 595 model, the 595 Yamaha Factory Racing Edition. Prices start at 17,420 with the order book open now.

What do you get?

The Abarth 595 Yamaha Factory Racing Edition can be recognised by a range of cosmetic additions. It rides on 17-inch matt black alloy wheels, which cover painted brake callipers. It also gets tinted windows plus optional Abarth side stripes and mirror covers. Inside there is a flat-bottomed leather sports steering wheel, aluminium pedals and 'Yamaha Factory Racing' badge. Options include leather upholstery, Xenon headlamps and dual-zone air conditioning.

How about the oily bits?

Power comes from a 1.4-litre, turbocharged petrol engine with upgraded components to increase power. A BMC 'high performance' air filter and Record Monza exhaust with four tailpipes contribute to an output of 160hp. Eibach lowered springs and Koni shock absorbers are fitted to enhance the Abarth's road holding.

Is there anything else?

Gerry Southerington, brand manager, Abarth UK said: "The new 595 Yamaha Factory Racing Edition adds a new dimension to the Abarth 595 line-up. With an upgrade to 160 horsepower, lowered suspension, sporting looks and a great sounding exhaust system, we expect a lot of interest in this car from Abarth enthusiasts and new customers alike."
