Meet the Gumball 3000 Rally official car – Abarth 695 Biposto

The Abarth 695 Biposto has been recently named the official car of the 16th edition of the Gumball 3000 Rally, as the company is the official automotive partner of the event.

The fastest ever street legal Abarth model, the 695 Biposto, has been made the official car of the 2014 Gumball 3000. The model in question is based on the Fiat 5000 and it will accompany participants on some of the stages of the rally, which has started from Ocean Drive, Miami, and it will end seven days later, in Ibiza. The pocket rocket has accompanied the participants on the Miami to New York.

The Abarth 695 Biposto is basically a road going version of the Abarth 695 Assetto Corse race car and it has only two seats as the rear bench and some of the comfort features have been removed to save weight. The powerful vehicle is weighing just 997 kg (2,198 lbs) and it has a weight to power ratio of 5.2 kg / HP. The model is powered by a 1.4 liter turbocharged petrol engine, rated at 190 HP. The 0 to 100 km/h sprint is made in just 5.9 seconds and top speed stands at 230 km/h (143 mph).
