Zapping Auto Moto Restyled Peugeot 2008 vs Renault Captur: first static confrontation!
It’s an event in more than one way, since in addition to the fact that this Abarth constitutes the brand’s very first crossover, this 600th develops an unequaled level of power for the Italian firm: 240 hp. But before rushing to your nearest Abarth distributor, be aware that this cavalry will only be moved by the electricity fairy. In this case, it should be the block recently inaugurated by the Peugeot E-3008, and which we will subsequently find under the hood of the Alfa Romeo Milano, as well as the future Lancia Ypsilon HF. In the meantime, the new Abarth 600e is undergoing the final tests but has already revealed its launch version equipped with a pack called Scorpionissima, which will be produced in a limited edition of 1,949 units.
If high-performance electric cars are mocked for their ability to accelerate very hard… in a straight line, this new Abarth 600e takes care of its handling by equipping itself with a mechanical limited-slip differential guaranteeing excellent stability, better maneuverability and better traction. We can therefore expect high levels of performance, especially since it is fitted with tires developed jointly with a Formula E supplier.
This new Abarth is a real eye-catcher by sporting the exclusive launch color “Hypnotic Purple”, as well as aaerodynamic rear spoiler. The car also features wide wheels, a low profile and 20-inch rims designed to accommodate a specific resized braking system. Finally, this 600th Scorpionissima Pack will be delivered with a certificate of authenticity.
Prix Abarth 600e
We will have to wait a few more weeks before discovering this Abarth 600e from all angles, as well as its complete technical sheet before it goes on sale in a few months at a supposedly steep price. Without a doubt, the €50,000 mark should be well crossed.
To sum up
We weren’t expecting it anytime soon. After a first teaser salvo, the Scorpion’s first SUV finally reveals a first exciting shot.
