The Fiat Abarth 695 Biposto is a dream vehicle for car aficionados in its basic form, but most buyers are
expected to opt for the special racing upgrades. While many available options will enhance the
appearance of the car, the most coveted one is the dog ring kit, a precise shifting system that eliminates
the need for a manual clutch. Most of the Bipostos coming to Australia will be equipped with this option.
What you will not find in the Biposto is a rear seat, air-conditioning, a sound system, door handles, and
movable air vents. While the car is fit to drive on the road, any creature comfort or convenience that adds
weight or does not contribute to performance is not a part of the vehicle. The Fiat Abarth 695 Biposto is
about performance and the roar of the engine, so the upgrades you want will serve those ends.
What Is In The Dog Ring Kit?
The dog ring gearbox is a specialised device that features thicker gears with multiple dogs (teeth) that
engage during shifting for a smooth, efficient shift quality. While the driver does not need to depress a
clutch to allow shifting between gears, the kit also includes a light flywheel and copper racing clutch and
an Ergal gearbox lever. The assembly is installed in the carbon fibre central tunnel console with a carbon
fibre handbrake cover that has a titanium handle.
What Else Is Available To Customise The Fiat Abarth 695 Biposto?
Aside from the gearbox upgrade, the Biposto has several other options. For example:
Special Kit 124 offers specially designed aluminium bonnet and titanium caps for oil, water, and
Carbon Kit offers carbon fibre dashboard fashion, front panel, rear panel, side mirror cups, and
window trimmings for a cool look.
Racing Windows offers sturdy Lexan/poly carbonate sliding windows.
Track Kit offers a racing dashboard, four point Sabelt seat belts, and specific Sabelt seats with
carbon fibre shell.
All these options available add to the basics to make the Biposto a sleek, fast race car that quickly wins
the heart of anyone who drives it. Its 1.4 litre turbo four-cylinder engine is enhanced with dog ring steering
and a sporty look made even more endearing with some of the other upgrades. While only a handful Fiat
Abarth 695 Bipostos will come to Australia, you can own one.
