The styling is inspired by Ferrari, with carbon wing mirrors, corsa grey wheels and front air intakes.

Powered by a 1,368cc turbocharged engine, producing 180bhp at 5500rpm and 250Nm torque at 3000rpm, the 695 Tributo Ferrari can accelerate from 0-62mph in seven seconds and has a top speed of 140mph. Fiat claims the engine can still return 43.3mpg.

Standard equipment includes, five airbags, electronic stability programme (ESP), torque transfer control (TTC), sport button, automatic climate control, Xenon headlights, Blue&Me hands-free infotainment, Abarth leather steering wheel, ‘Record Monza’ dual-mode exhaust, Abarth Corsa by Sabelt seats and 17-inch alloy wheels.

Mounted behind the steering wheel are the paddles for the electro-hydraulic Abarth Competizione gearbox which has manual and auto modes. Pressing the sport button changes settings on the gearbox, engine control unit and steering for a sportier drive.

The Abarth 695 Tributo Ferrari is available to special order only, through Abarth’s 17-strong UK dealer network.
