Abarth celebrates the 131 Rally with the new 695 Tributo

To celebrate the 40th anniversary of the last official race run by the Abarth 131 Rally, the Fiat tuner has decided to make a special version of the 695, called the 695 Tributo.

The Abarth 131 Rally was unveiled in 1976 and he raced for 6 years in the World Rally Championship, obtaining 18 victories in international stages and individual prizes when driving the car were names of the caliber of Walter Rohrl or Markku Alen.

The engine sound is ensured by the complete 'Record Monza Sovrapposto' exhaust system that Abarth has decided to install on the 695 Tributo.

One of the most intriguing, and certainly clearly evident, details of the 695 Tributo is the imposing wing - which obviously bears the name of the manufacturer in relief - positioned at the rear: it is called 'Spoiler ad Assetto Variabile', and as the name suggests allows you to adjust the angle in 12 different positions, between 0 and 60 °, and if positioned at 60 ° the spoiler is able to provide 42 kg of downforce at 200 km / h, so as to improve road holding. br>

On an aesthetic level, the Abarth 695 Tributo is embellished with a "Blue Rally" color, a modern reinterpretation of the color of the original 131 Rally and also used on various elements inside the car, such as seat covers or door pillars.
