Abarth has unveiled a special edition Abarth 695 Rivale to celebrate the 175th anniversary of Riva Motorboat. Together with the Abarth 695 Rivale, the 695 Rivale 175 Anniversary is also unveiled to celebrate 175 years of the Riva brand, which was founded in 1842.
The 175 Anniversary edition will be available in 175 sedans and 175 cabriolets.
The special Abarth 175 gets hand crafted details like the two-colour blue and black hand-stitched leather seats with a celebratory logo stitched onto the headrest, the carbon dashboard silk screen printed with the special logo, the special numbered plate inside and the celebratory badge on the outside of the pillar. The design of the 17" alloy rims is also special.
Available in a limited series of sedan and cabriolet versions, the Abarth 695 Rivale can be recognised by its exclusive livery: two-tone Riva Sera Blue and Shark Grey paintwork, embellished with an aquamarine double stripe that runs at waistline height, resembling the "beauty line" on yachts.
The satin chrome finish on the door handles, the "695 Rivale" name on the tailgate and rear bumpers, the satin chrome moulding on the tailgate, which evokes the sophisticated shapes of a yacht, making this model even more unmistakable thanks to its aesthetic affinity with the side grilles on the new Riva yachts.
Powering the 695 Rivale is a 1.4-litre engine, which guarantees a maximum power of 180 HP and a torque of 250 Nm. It has a maximum speed of 225 km/h and 6.7 seconds to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h.
The Rivale gets Uconnect infotainment with a 7" HD touch screen, ready for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. There is also a hand-written numbered plate, which can be customised with the mane of your yacht on request.
Abarth also gets Akrapović exhaust system with carbon tail pipes, Brembo brakes with black, 4-piston fixed callipers at the front, 17" Supersport alloy rims with special gloss grey finish and Koni suspension with FSD (Frequency-Selective Damping) technology.
