The Abarth 695 Maserati Edition will consist of only 499 vehicles to be sold mainly in European markets. It’s public debut take place on the occasion of the 30th anniversary of the Mille Miglia, which Enzo Ferrari described as “the most beautiful race in the world.”

The new model represents the bond between Abarth and Maserati and follows the collaborative project with Ferrari for the creation of the Abarth 695 Tributo Ferrari three years ago. Therefore, this new project reinforces Abarth in the luxury sport segment.

The new limited edition combines the elegance and comfort of a “GranTurismo” with the handling of an every day car.
The new Abarth 695 Maserati Edition is an exclusive convertible that blends sportiness with refined aesthetics.

The 1.4 Turbo T-Jet 16v engine is boosted to 180hp and teamed with the electrically operated Abarth Competizione manual transmission with paddle controls.

The Maserati Edition has exhaust tailpipes modified to resemble the hexagonal shape that is a hallmark of Maserati cars.

The car is fitted with 17" wheels featuring a Maserati-inspired “Neptune” design. The ride and braking system have also been uprated: 305mm Brembo disc brakes with grey four-piston calipers and Koni shock absorbers guarantee performance in complete safety.

The exterior features Pontevecchio Bordeaux paint from Maserati while the soft top is grey fabric.

The interior has seats upholstered in sand beige leather, with single-layer padding strips; sporty and comfortable at the same time. They also have the number “695” heat-printed on the head restraints.

The dashboard and transmission trim are distinguished by a matte-finish carbon lining, enhanced with the 695 logo, while the door panels undergo a special UV-LUX treatment to give them a grey “flocking” effect.

The black leather steering wheel has beige leather inserts and tricolour hub, while the instrument panel has been produced by Jaeger.

Other details include aluminium pedals and sill plate, carbon fiber kick plate with “Abarth 695 Maserati Edition” graphics, and a plate with the car’s serial number from 1 to 499.

Lastly, the car comes with a JBL audio system with nine speakers and an eight-channel amplifier supplying 400 watts of power.
