What on Earth is that? It’s an Abarth 695 Rivale. In plain English, it’s a Fiat 500 heated up by Abarth and then – quite against any reasonable expectation – painted and trimmed in homage to a Riva boat. If you’re picturing a tasteful wooden Aquarama cutting decadently through Monegasque shores, and struggling to see any likeness, you probably need to get acquainted with Riva’s rather more showy line-up of full-size yachts. Mind, it’s still described as “the most sophisticated of all Abarth creations”. Anyone who’s heard an Abarth 124 Spider flatulently making its way through traffic will know that’s not a particularly tall order anyway. What’s new?
