  • Abarth Australia has welcome the coveted special-edition: the Abarth 595 Scorpioneoro – paying homage to the exclusive A112 Abarth “Gold Ring”, better known to enthusiasts as the Abarth “Targo Oro”.
  • Blending performance and sporty styling, the special edition hot hatch features black and gold scorpion livery coupled with golden details; a matte-black chequered flag roof; and Tar Cold Gray finishes on the handles, mirror caps and front and rear bumper.

August 4, 2021: In an honorable 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: in-line with the ultra-exclusive A112 Abarth “Gold Ring” of 1979 – with only 150 produced globally.

Featuring black scorpion livery adorned with gold accents throughout, the Scorpioneoro perfectly blends style and performance: The Euro 6D 1.4 T-jet engine, with manual transmission for vehicle aesthetics, delivers a power to weight ratio of 14 pounds per horsepower, with an acceleration of zero to 60 miles per hour in 7.3 seconds.

Tom Noble, Marketing and Communications Director for Abarth, said: “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.

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

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 the cabin, the sleek styling extends to new Abarth ‘Scorpionflage’ sport seats with leather upholstery, the headrests embroidered with the Italian flag and “Abarth Scorpioneoro” lettering.

 

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

About Carlo Abarth

Carlo Abarth created the legend of the “scorpion” with total dedication and almost frenetic activity: that revealed the characteristics of a genius. His continuous successes on and off track followed one after another at a rate which is still amazing today. An incredible lifetime punctuated with records, triumphs, and epoch-making ideas which changed our approach to the sports car.

In 1956, driving a Fiat Abarth 750 with a body by Bertone, he set a whole series of duration and speed records: on June 18, on the Monza track, he broke the 24-hour record – traveling 2,000 miles at an average speed of 96 miles per hour. Then, from June 27 to 29, again at Monza, he broke numerous other records: the 3,000, 5,000 and 6,000 miles; and, also, the records for 48 hours and 72 hours.

 

On October 20, 1965, he set the acceleration record over a quarter of a mile and over 1,500 feet on the “Monza track, with the Fiat Abarth 1000 Monoposto Record” Class G, 105 horsepower. The next day, he set the same records for higher classes in a 2,000 cc Class E single-seater. Yet another anecdote which says a lot about the tenacity of the man, who had to lose 70 pounds (in weight) at the age of 57 in order to get into the small cockpit and drive his cars to victory.
