Character. It's what epitomizes the rare Abarth Tributo Ferrari and in a day and age where manufacturers are rushing to meet the growing demands of consumers with safe, predictable offerings, this nifty tuned-up supermini certainly stands out! What started out as ultra-cool courtesy cars for Ferrari clients in Italy, it was eventually launched in limited quantities around the world. Inspired largely by the Ferrari 430 Scuderia, the 695 pushes out some serious performance from it's compact 1.4-litre turbocharged engine.
The exterior is as conceivably stylish as it gets. There are minute similarities between the Fiat 500(which is the base model from which the 695 was conceived) and the R50 Mini Cooper as famed car designer Frank Stephenson penned both models in addition to the Ferrari 430 Scuderia and the mighty Maserati MC12.
We got our hands on the first and only(as of this entry) Abarth Tributo Ferrari in the country fell in love with her immediately. WIth less than a week to get her ready for delivery, we worked around the clock to detail the 695 inside-out.
From the distinctively Italian interior design to the every nuance of the vehicle, the 695 is extraordinarily special. And it makes certain you'll notice. We detailed the leather, interior trim and every inch of the carbon-fiber components ensuring a perfect delivery.
Even Jaeger designed a special instrument panel for the 695.
Right in the center of the dashboard sits the turbo gauge. It means business and doesn't mind showing it.
Individualized badging to remind you that you're in something special!
Immaculate paintwork finish within a shortened time-frame.
The tuned-up 1.4 turbocharged engine pushes 180 bhp!
We perfected the matte grey wheels and worked over every section of the car. The more compact dimensions meant that even the slightest imperfections would be more distinctive.
Here's a look at the polished Abarth "Record Monza" exhaust system which has variable back-pressure allowing for an exciting exhaust note and loads of pop during gear-shifts!
Parting shot of the Scuderia stripes...
Hope you enjoyed it! ;-)
Woahhh... this is like my dream garage and my dream photo studio combined into one placed.
I'm currently building my dream house. Those photos of yours are my inspiration. I'm looking to build a garage with tools equal to small mod shops and small detailing shops.
Your place is jaw dropping, stunning!
We've been busy working on several special restoration projects and also a recent television feature for our work on detailing. Updates have been a little delayed and we apologize for the wait. Here's a Ferrari 458 Italia that was detailed in a traditional Ferrari yellow shade called Giallo Modena. The client had specified a gloss black contrast on the roof of the vehicle and it immediately brings to memory the P4/5 Pininfarina one-off collectible that is owned by stock magnate James Glickenhaus. The Ferrari 458 is a remarkably precise supercar. It handles and pitches with unnerving immediacy. Having driven the 458 for short stints, it is truly a mechanical and engineering marvel. If there's any downside to this car, it is perhaps the level of refinement that it has achieved, which means it does lacks the abrasive, unrestrained feel of it's previous brethren, the Scuderia. Still, being Italian, the roar of the V8 will stir your soul. Such is the spell from Maranello's stable!
We spent a week detailing the 458 into the display-worthy finish here.*
The black interior with yellow contrast stitching really gives the cabin a futuristic ambiance. Coupled with our matte leather feed system, the result is a deep, rich finish without any shine or greasy residue.*
The engine bay is the heart of the vehicle so it gets detailed as well...
Hope you enjoyed the photos!
love these photos & the articles that you write about the cars. who needs a dam magazine?i just check out your thread from time to time & my jaw hits the floor. lol
The Blancpain Super Trofeo, Lamborghini's own one-make*racing series where the fastest drivers from around the world compete against each other. It's no wonder that when Lamborghini decided to make the centerpiece of the Gallardo model-line, it chose the Super Trofeo Stradale name-sake and made the agile supercar lighter and even faster than ever. *Only 150 units built worldwide and we got to detail the only one in the country. Perhaps the most distinguishing characteristics of the STS would be the massive rear wing which comes from the racing series providing extreme downforce whilst being adjustable. The removable engine cover is made of dry-carbon and is nothing short of being breathtakingly aggressive.*
But the most unique identity of the supercar is the special Rosso Mars colour. A deep crimson red colour which almost seems like blood.
This is Malaysia's one and only Super Trofeo Stradale, numbered 011 of 150. A collectible if you like.*
We took an entire week bringing out the deep brilliant paintwork finish and countless hours ensuring all the carbon-fiber panels on the exterior and interior were buffed to perfection.*
The Super Trofeo Stradale is wicked mean. And it sounds the part too. The exhaust rumbles and bellows like a crazed beast in stock form.
The paintwork was typical Lamborghini and required expert compounding to level the paint shrinkage and to reduce the orange-peel texture. The reflections began to take clarity and sharpness after the paintwork correction was completed.*
Perhaps the best view of the Super Trofeo Stradale yet...
The massive dry-cabon rear spoiler stands out like an inappropriate tattoo. Quirky, yet disturbingly necessary for it's own identity.*
The cockpit is a hedonistic combination of rich Alcantara and carbon-fiber. And for any car enthusiast, this is heaven. We made sure we detailed it to look the part too ;-)
Being an ultra-lightweight, there's yards of carbon-fiber everywhere you can find inside the cabin! We utilized our range of specialized ultra-fine polishes to give the carbon-fiber an astonishingly deep shine.
Outside, it's all business...
We covered all coachwork sections for detailing including the suspensions, brake systems and exhausts.
The wheels got steam-cleaned, polished and protected with our track-performance coating system.
Two-tone colour scheme with luxurious Alcantara drapes all over the cockpit.
The Alcantara fabric was protected by a layer of ultra-dense nano-technology coating system designed to repel moisture, sweat and dirt for an entire year.*
The water beads look strangely alluring up close...
We hope you enjoyed the photos!
