Abarth presents the special edition 595 Competizione car in association with TAG Heuer

At the Brussels International Motor Show 2016, Abarth in partnership with TAG Heuer has unveiled an exclusive special edition: the new Abarth 595 Competizione by TAG Heuer - the sportiest and most powerful four-seater in the Abarth range.

Under the leadership of Jean-Claude Biver, CEO of TAG Heuer and President of the LVMH Group Watch Division, the car was developed in partnership with Garage Italia Customs, run by Lapo Elkann, as a limited edition of just 30 vehicles. Its 1.4 T-jet engine has been ramped up to 180 hp with torque of 250 Nm, thanks to a new turbine and a Monza Record high-performance exhaust.
The 595 Competizione by TAG Heuer is designed for adrenaline junkies, who will appreciate its 0-100 km/h acceleration in 6.7 seconds, as well as its powerful, secure brakes which use a Brembo oversized system.
To add even more style and exclusivity to this feisty little car, Abarth has teamed up with Swiss watch company TAG Heuer in the first ever partnership of this kind. Cars and motor racing are part of TAG Heuer's heritage and in its genes. The Swiss luxury watch brand has famously partnered and supported some of the greatest F1 teams and drivers, as well as the most legendary circuits.
The car is delivered with an exclusive watch created for the occasion: a 41 mm diameter TAG Heuer Carrera Automatic Chronograph equipped with an aluminium tachometer bezel and customised with the exclusive Abarth logo in the counter at 9 o'clock and the Abarth scorpion engraved on the back of the watch. The finishing touch is a perforated leather strap with red stitching to evoke the spirit of racing, and the watch also features satin-finished sides, in a beautifully sporty nod to the car.
The Abarth 595 Competizione by TAG Heuer is a limited edition of 30 vehicles, available only in Belgium and Luxembourg in its hatchback version, priced at €27,790(€26,871 in Luxembourg).

Each vehicle is accompanied by a TAG Heuer Carrera automatic chronograph engraved with the Scorpion logo.

This edition boasts the following features:
Specific bi-colour scheme on the brushed aluminium effect wrap applied by Garage Italia Customs
17" alloy wheels
Red brake callipers
Sabelt bucket seats in black leather and Alcantara
Interscope audio system
Specific "TAG Heuer Limited Edition" aluminium interior identification plate
