Not content with playing Mini at its own game with the launch of the reimagined 500 in 2007, Fiat Group went one further in 2013 by bringing back a glorious name from its racing heritage.
The Abarth 595 recalled the giant killing antics of the 500 touring cars of the 1960s, frequently seen doing battle on circuits with V8 Fords and Chevrolets.
The modern interpretation would of the Abarth 595 became a head-to-head rival with the Mini Cooper S, but with an even bigger dose of character and superbly sharp driving dynamics. It's no surprise, then, that the 595 became a big hit with enthusiastic drivers and today makes for a massively entertaining high performance supermini with a huge amount of gusto.
This example is a 2014 car in Turismo specification, in Record Grey metallic, which has been properly cared for by its previous owners and comes with a full history file. Presented in really smart overall condition, it's a massively entertaining car with a huge personality.

About Max Bids
The max bid process allows you to bid without any hassle.
Enter your maximum bid and we will then bid on your behalf to ensure you're the highest bidder - just enough to keep you in the lead and only up until your maximum.
Car & Classic prevent auction snipers from bidding in the last seconds to win an auction.
Auctions are extended by 3 minutes if anyone bids within the last 2 minutes to allow other bidders to react and counter-bid.
If your maximum bid is equal to or below the reserve price, your maximum bid will be applied in full if you are the highest bidder.
If you are the highest bidder and place a maximum bid above the reserve, we will automatically put in the reserve as your first bid.
Once the reserve has been met, Car & Classic will make sure you are the highest bidder using only the bidding increments stated below.
We will keep you in the lead up until your maximum bid OR the increment closest to your maximum bid, providing your maximum bid is enough to cover the increment value.
£0 to £9,999
£10,000 to £49,999
£50,000 to £99,999
Automatically outbid immediately
When you place a max bid and are outbid immediately that means that another bidder has placed a max bid limit which is higher than yours.
You can bid again and we will use our automatic bid system to try and get you as the highest bidder.
Matching max bids
When there are two max bids of the same value, the one placed first remains the lead bidder.
What are pre-bids?
A pre-bid means you\'re able to place a bid before the official start of the auction.
You will be notified whether or not you are the highest bidder when the auction starts.
Problem with your bid
Bids are contractually binding. To help protect you, we have some rules in place if we think it's been mistyped. Please check and amend what you have entered.
