Touches that include an enormous front splitter hanging from what looks to be an entirely re-worked front section complete with blistered wheel arches hacked into the bodywork. Is it mostly held on with tape? We’re not certain. Then there’s the huge rear-wing, which has been hilariously positioned only slightly above the existing spoiler, creating what we hope is a perfectly engineered airflow maximising downforce. The track has been widened a touch, to the extent that the front and rear wheels are hanging far beyond the outer limits of the chassis.
Then there’s the sound of the thing, which out-shouts almost everything else it’s sharing the Monza circuit with. It sounds utterly insane at it roars down the pit straight. We don’t know what the performance figures are like, but we imagine this version is somewhat quicker than a standard 695 Biposto. A quick ride onboard gives us an idea of just what a monster these heroes have created.
Excellent work, we say. Why aren’t there more utterly ludicrous Abarth modifications in the world?
