In a tribute to the A112 Abarth “Gold Ring”, the exclusive special edition hot hatch, the Abarth 595 Scorpioneoro, has arrived in Australia.

Limited to just 30 units of the global production run of 2,000, the Abarth 595 Scorpioneoro is an unmistakable tribute to the heritage of the Abarth brand. It features black scorpion livery adorned with gold accents throughout.

Power comes from a Euro 6D 1.4 T-jet engine with five-speed manual transmission. And it accelerates from zero to 100km/h in 7.3 seconds.

The Abarth 595 Scorpioneoro’s dark exterior is enhanced with a matte black chequered flag roof, the distinctive black styling decorated with golden accents including scorpion emblem on the bonnet, gold all around liner, 17-inch golden alloy wheels with scorpion hubcap artwork and gold Scorpioneoro badge.

The exterior design is further elevated with tinted rear and side windows, with ‘Tar Cold Gray’ finish of the handles, mirror caps and the front and rear bumper.

Inside are Abarth Scorpionflage sport seats with leather upholstery, the headrests are embroidered with the Italian flag and “Abarth Scorpioneoro” lettering.

Matte black details are continued on the dashboard. The central tunnel features a golden plate unique to the Abarth 595 Scorpioneoro special edition, denoting it as an authentic collectible.

Comfort and convenience features include the Uconnect touchscreen with DAB, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, automatic climate control, Beats Audio System and exclusive floor mats.

The Abarth 595 Scorpioneoro is on sale now from $31,450, available at Abarth Dealerships across Australia.

“Abarth collectors will relish the opportunity to get their hands on this attractive special edition Abarth 595 Scorpioneoro, an authentic representation of the brand’s racing heritage,” said Tom Noble, Director Marketing Communications for Abarth.

“A spirited driver’s car with its manual transmission and punchy engine, we now have a visual guise that truly reflects the character of Abarth, complete with numbered golden heritage scorpion badging making it an authentic collectible for enthusiasts.”
