Abarth Introduces 595 Esseesse and 124 Rally Tribute in Geneva
The esseesse has a deep history and the brand looks to revive it.
The Scorpion brand came at the Geneva Motor Show with some racing souls. The new Abarth 595 esseesse and the Abarth 124 Rally Tribute limited edition mark the 70th anniversary of the brand.
The esseesse has a deep history and the brand looks to revive it with the new Abarth 595 esseesse featuring unique style and connectivity facilities. The car has a powerful 180 hp engine, custom made Akrapovic exhaust system, a high-performance Brembo front braking system, the exclusive air cleaner by BMC, and a Koni FSD (Frequency Selective Damping) rear suspension system. Furthermore, it gets 17-inch Supersport alloy wheels with a new Racing White finish, Abarth side stripes, mirror caps, and identical front and rear dam.
Inside, it has a 7-inch / 177.8 mm Uconnect® HD touchscreen system with Abarth Telemetry, Apple CarPlay™ support, and Android Auto™ compatibility. To express its racing persona, it has Sabelt 70 sports seats with a carbon rear shell, and carbon pedals.
The automaker has also chosen the Geneva Motor Show to showcase the new Abarth 124 Rally Tribute. The global debut marks the 124 Rally racing car’s success in the FIA R-GT Cup last year, in addition to around 40 class wins in the 12 national championships.
The automaker is only creating 124 examples, which positions it perfectly as a collector car. As a limited edition car, it has many features inside and out certifying its unique status.
