Limited to 2,000 units worldwide, of which 50 are destined for the Middle East, the special-edition Abarth 595 Scorpioneoro was first introduced in 2020—almost four years after the launch of the facelifted Abarth 595 with its five versions.

With distinctive black livery detailing and gold accents, the all-new limited-run model pays homage to the A112 Abarth Gold Ring of 1979, while combining strong performance and authentic styling.

In Qatar, the Abarth 595 Scorpioneoro won the 2021 “Qatar Car of the Year” (QCOTY)—the country’s most prestigious automotive accolades, organized by Maqina Middle East Magazine in cooperation with Mawater Center—for the “Best Hatchback Sports Car.” Adding another prestigious honor to the impressive list of honors and awards, the win of the Abarth 595 Scorpioneoro is a further testament to its charming Italian style, blistering performance, and elegant sportiness.

The 2022 Abarth 595 Scorpioneoro is available in Qatar through Alfardan Sports Motors—Qatar’s official and authorized Abarth importer. Alfardan Sports Motors offers an industry-leading five-year or 120,000 km (whichever comes first) warranty and service package on all models that carry the Scorpion badge.

The Abarth 595 Scorpioneoro is currently on display at the Alfardan Sports Motors’ showroom in The Pearl-Qatar’s Medina Centrale. Alfardan Sports Motors designed their concept-based state-of-the-art showroom to offer a personalized and immersive customer experience.

New gold rush

With many stylish features, the all-new black-and-gold Scorpioneoro stands out from the crowd, thanks to its gold-painted 17-inch alloy wheels, a matte black checkered flag on the roof, a golden scorpion emblem on the hood, and a gold accent line along the front, rear, and sides.

Aside from the Abarth stickers on the doors, the limited-run hot hatchback shares several exterior features with the Abarth 595 range, such as the tinted rear and side windows, the gray door handles and mirror caps, the dual exhaust pipes that sit flush in each corner, and the stylish LED headlights and taillights.

The special-edition Abarth 595 Scorpioneoro retains the same proportions as the Abarth 595 line-up models. That means it has an overall length of 3571 mm and measures 1627 mm and 1488 mm in width and height, respectively, with a wheelbase of 2300 mm.

Stylish interior with luxurious amenities

Stylish and luxurious, the 2022 Abarth 595 Scorpioneoro’s interior feels sportier and more elegant than its sibling—the Abarth 595 Competizione. Key interior highlights include sports seats wrapped in black leather, Abarth Scorpioneoro lettering along with the Italian flag embroidered in the headrests, and matte black dashboard trim, among other luxurious amenities.

There is a gold plaque on the center console, numbered specifically for each model, titled “Gulf Collection.” A gold-finished 500 logo, the Uconnect infotainment system, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, DAB digital radio, automatic climate control, exclusive floor mats, flat-bottomed steering wheel, race-inspired digital instrument cluster, and Beats sound system are also available.

Abarth’s latest creation comes with a plethora of driver-assistance systems, such as the advanced Electronic Stability Control (ESC), Anti Slip Regulation (ASR), Hill Holder, Fire Prevention System (FPS), and Hydraulic Brake Assistance (HBA), in addition to rear parking sensors and front, front-side, and curtain airbags.

A powerful 1.4-liter engine

Under the hood of the limited-run Abarth 595 Scorpioneoro lies a potent, turbocharged, 1.4-liter engine. The powerful engine produces 165 hp and 230 Nm of torque—15 hp and 20 Nm less than the 595 Competizione, which is the range-topping model.

The 1.4-liter engine can push the little supercar from zero to 100 km/h in just 7.3 seconds (with a manual gearbox) before hitting a top speed of 218 km/h.

The 2022 Abarth 595 Scorpioneoro also comes with a five-speed manual transmission as standard, but clients can order a five-speed robotized sequential transmission with paddle shifters.

Front and rear self-ventilating, perforated discs of 284 mm and 240 mm, respectively, provide excellent braking performance.

The new special-edition model comes with telescopic shock absorbers with FSD (Frequency Selective Damping) at the front and Koni FSD shock absorbers at the rear to ensure exceptional handling with outstanding grip and zero body roll.
