The Abarth 695 biposto makes its official road debut on June 8th, and what better way to do so than by being selected as the official car of the 2014 Gumball 3000 Rally. The new Abarth 695 biposto is an over the top, full blown street and track car with 2 seats (biposto), roll bar, and a list of performance modifications a mile long. From its Zender body kit with polycarbonate side windows to its competition dog ring gearbox, the Abarth 695 biposto is the most outrageous Fiat 500 Abarth yet.
The Gumball 3000 is a high profile, non-competitive international rally that covers 3000 miles on public roads.
