Turns 75 and builds the last petrol car ever

Abarth, which turns 75 this year, builds the brand's last ever car with a combustion engine based on the now not so small Fiat 500.

Abarth 695 75° Anniversario might be a long name, but it is a special name. Because it covers the brand's last model with a combustion engine.

So last as in 'ever'. Because after 2024, the small Italian brand – which is a branch of Fiat – will only sell electric cars.

In fact, they are already building electric cars. Or at least they get Fiat to do it. The Abarth 500e is a canine electric car with an external speaker so people think the owners are driving a hot petrol car. But no.

The 695 is the last. And not many of them will be out on the roads. Fiat/Abarth builds only 1,386 cars, because it is completely finished.

They all get a 1.4-liter gasoline engine with four cylinders, turbo, 180 horsepower and 250 newton meters.

Mind you – when the Fiat 500 was relaunched as a city car in 2007, it was with a 0.9-litre, 3-cylinder engine with 60 horsepower. 60!
