2016 Fiat Abarth Biposto Series 3
Zagame Collection proudly offers an extremely rare Abarth 695 Biposto, affectionally termed the world’s most compact supercar. It has the dynamic looks, thrill-a-second fun factor and enough carbon fibre to make a Lamborghini sulk.
This example has all supporting documents and is one of just two Officina Red imported into Australia by FCA and one of only 99 in this colour in the world.
Car versus Mountain
The two-seat sports model is based on the 595 Competizione and, before that, the humble Fiat 500. The Biposto also provides the foundation for the track-tuned Assetto Corse race car, of which three factory-backed entries made an assault on the 2014 Bathurst 12 Hour GT endurance race. To the cheers of motorsport fans all three defied the odds to greet the chequered flag while more fancied, big name rivals failed to finish.
Looks the goods!
This Biposto looks the piece with carbon fibre front spoiler, rear diffuser, engine shroud and plumbing, door inserts and legit carbon fibre bucket racing seats . It also sits purposefully on 18-ich O.Z Racing wheels and stops on a coin with high-performance Brembo brakes with four-pot calipers on ventilated front discs.
F is for Fun
A dry weight of just 997 kgs means the Biposto is light as well as small, making its punchy 140 kW four more than adequate. There’s nothing to snigger at with a top speed in excess of 200 km/h and what this pocket rocket may lack in sheer grunt it more than makes up for in tippy-toe dynamics and the ability to shake off bigger and faster cars on tight, twisty, narrow roads.
This is an Abarth with a capital F for Fun!
