The Scorpion’s design is still charming the experts and demanding readers of the German magazine AUTO BILD as confirmed by yet another win in “The Best Brands” competition. Readers of the car magazine awarded Abarth the first place for best design for the third time in recent editions and, for the fourth year running, declared the design of the iconic Abarth 595 the best in the “Smallest Car” category, too.
The dual victory confirms the passion of German readers for the great charm of Abarth and the success that the Scorpion brand continues to have in Germany, last year increasing its market share by 45% compared to the previous year, with the Abarth brand setting the record for sales in Europe.
The signature design is bold and focused on attention to detail and care for materials. In a word, it is uniquely and unmistakably Abarth. It is when style pairs with performance that a true Abarth is created. These are the two values that have always distinguished the brand and that customers are rediscovering in the recently launched New 2021 Range featuring the 595, Turismo, Competizione, and Esseesse.

While the 595 Turismo expresses the typical style and comfort values of the best Italian Gran Turismo tradition, and is dedicated to motorists who want to stand out for their style, who love the city and want to take it on with determination, the 595 Competizione is aimed at the fans of unadulterated performance and sportiness, who want to have fun on the road like on the track and aspire to turn every trip into an extraordinary experience.
