APE v APE SS

If I traded my normal APE in for an "SS" or an APE "Scorpione Limited Edition" would I notice much difference.

Re: APE v APE SS

the Supersport comes with the remap to 180? thats pretty much the main difference other that the stripes.
@Freebo is best to answer

Re: APE v APE SS

Right now by SS do you mean Supersport or esseesse?

Supersport comes with:
180bhp Map
Brembo Brakes (Red)
BMC Air Filter
Black Scorpion Alloys
Performance free flow exhaust
Supersport Badges all over the car

Some of the original Supersports came with the stripe and Sabelt bucket seats.

However if you configured one to order it doesn't come with the stripes as standard or the black scorpion Alloy wheels and red calipers. These are optional extra's in the 'Heritage Pack', This is a 900 optional extra however you can select the Alloys and Calipers separately (150 for the Alloys and 100 for the Brake caliper colour) Meaning the stripe is 650! But this cannot be purchased separately unless you go to a viynl person like I am going to do and get it for less than 300. The Sabelt bucket seats are also a 1150 optional extra.

The Scorpione came with:
180bhp Map
Brembo Brakes (Yellow)
BMC Air Filter
Black Aluminum 18" alloy wheels
Performance free flow exhaust
Sabelt Bucket seats with Yellow Stitching


The esseesse on the other hand is a APE with:
180Bhp Map
BMC Air Filter
Perforated floating front disc brakes
Front and rear Koni Shock's
Lower red springs
18" esseesse alloys (White or titanium)
Performance free flow exhaust

So in honesty a Scorpione is going to be the rarest of the bunch as only 10 will be available in the UK. However the esseesse is better equipped imho.

Edit:
The Supersport and Scorpione top speed is limited to 136mph where as the esseesse is limited to 134 (but what does 2mph matter at that speed ) the 0-62 are all the same at 7.5s

Edit 2: I also drove a 165 APE before the Supersport and must say the extra 15hp is noticeable however I would still recommend testing one out to see what you think.

Re: APE v APE SS

Update:

Just been reading, the esseesse kit doesnt come with an exhaust. Only the 500 esseesse kit comes with one

Re: APE v APE SS

I had a 'normal' Abarth for just short of 2 years and traded it in for the Supersport and surprisingly did notice a difference

The Supersport does feel a bit quicker, the exhaust is louder and you can really here the turbo. I don't know what seats you had before but the Sabelts in my Supersport are to die for, I get in them and just don't want to get out

Honestly.... it was the best decision I ever made

Re: APE v APE SS

Had an standard APE, just changed to a scorpione (would like to know who the other 9 are!) and it feels like a different car. To be honest it's mainly the different turbo and exhaust sound... It does feel quicker which I didn't think it would be noticeable.

Freebo the scorpione has the koni shocks

Re: APE v APE SS
