Italian manufacturing at its finest has lead to the production of the Abarth 695 Rivale - a collaborative effort between Abarth and Riva.
These legends of the track and sea build their products with three fundamental pillars in place; tradition, elegance and innovation. It is therefore no surprise that the result of this partnership is a harmonious combination of sophistication and performance in the shape of a car.
Inspired by Riva's successes in the '20s and '30s and Abarth's in the '50s and '60s, the 695 Rivale is capable of 0-62mph in just 6.7 seconds.
Sitting behind the wheel of the 695 Rivale will make you feel as free as if you were sailing the open sea on a Riva yacht.
Exclusively available in Riva Blue and Grey, the 695 Rivale's livery is separated by an aquamarine water line, representing a thin line of sea on the horizon separating the sky from the road. At the rear, the Satin Chrome molding is inspired by nautical design.
Aside from the exclusive paintwork, the 695 Rivale is branded at the side and rear with Rivale badges. It sports gloss grey 17" Supersport wheels which add a touch of elegance and provide quality contact with the road.
Proudly sit in the most refined Abarth ever when you own the 695 Rivale. Immerse yourself in an ambience of refinement with blue leather seats and interior detailing as well as carbon fibre and aluminium detailing. The optional mahogany pack further evokes the Riva spirit and includes a dashboard cover, steering wheel detailing, door sills and gear knob.
The 695 Rivale comes equipped with an exclusive instrument panel. The dedicated Splash Screen welcomes the driver like no other Abarth available, reminding you that this is a special edition. The optional personalised plate also offers a limited edition feeling to the car and is fitted using the same screws used in the construction of Riva yachts.
There's no need for a compass or nautical charts to plot your course in the 695 Rivale which comes fully equipped with satellite navigation built into the 7" touchscreen Uconnect radio system. It is compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, so you can take advantage of your smartphone's voice recognition technology as well as stream your favourite music, make calls or exchange messages.
Under the bonnet, the 695 Rivale houses a 180hp 1.4 T-Jet engine that is able to achieve a top speed of 140mph. The Akrapovič exhaust produces a symphony which is composed in the engine and it underlines the refined aesthetics which enables you to reach the highest levels of performance.
