Abarth UK recently announced pricing and specification for the brand new Abarth 595 Trofeo, shortly before the vehicle’s landing in the UK later this month.

As expected from Abarth, performance was a top priority when creating the 595 Trofeo along with technical reform, however, they’ve still managed to achieve value for money. You will be able to pick up the 1.4 TJet 160 hp hatchback version for a fair price of £17,290.

The 595 Trofeo takes inspiration from the UK concept of the 595 Trofeo Edition which was launched in summer 2015. However, it has raised the bar tech-wise with the introduction of a 7-inch Uconnect infotainment system that includes Abarth telemetry which allows the owner to load up famous European race tracks. Uconnect is also supplied with Apple Car/Android Auto so you can pair up your smartphone device allowing access to music, media, maps and more.

Here is what Abarth UK brand manager, Gerry Southerington, had to say:

“The new Trofeo is a novel and exciting idea for the 595 range,” Southerington also said “The extra standard equipment means it’s excellent value for money, while the technology such as the telemetry, makes it an ideal choice for customers who want to test their car’s performance on a racetrack. It’s a winning combination.”

Appearance-wise the vehicle is based on the 595 Pista which was shown at the recent Geneva International Motor show. Although, it comes complete with a Record Monza exhaust and is available in five different colours: Abarth Red, Gara White, Campovolo Grey, Record Grey or Scorpione Black – These colours come with correlative front and rear dam inserts and wing mirrors in black, red or yellow. Also, the car comes with 17-inch matt black Formula Alloy wheels.

Pricing for the new Abarth 595 Trofeo is below:

  • 595 Trofeo 1.4 TJet 160hp hatchback £17,290
  • 595 Trofeo 1.4 TJet 160hp cabriolet £19,290
