The World's Smallest Supercar

The Abarth 695 Biposto recently made its UK dynamic debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed. Reporter Paul Hudson of The Telegraph tells us everything we need to know…

You don’t need 1,000bhp and only two seats to create a supercar, as the Abarth 695 Biposto proved on the hillclimb at the Goodwood Festival of Speed.

The pocket supercar, a heavily modified version of the Fiat 500 city car, musters ‘only’ 190bhp but the important figure here is its weight of 997kg.

Abarth will keep hand-building these little monsters at its workshop in Turin as long as there is demand.

The ferocity of its acceleration away from the line is startling. Although it’s putting all its power through the front wheels and standard tyres, there’s very little torque steer and the steering feels uncorrupted as the first double right-hander is dispatched with alacrity.

It’s a great weapon for the Goodwood hill in that it’s not as wide as traditional supercars, so can be placed in the corners more accurately. The light weight is also an aid to agility.
