Yep. Proper slippy diff. Also got torque transfer control.

Very nice Simon. Waiting for you to say it's garaged and only coming out on sunny days. You've a different private plate too?!

Very nice! I should have said Limited Slip diff. The LSD and the torque transfer probably makes this latest series of the Abarth the best handling and almost similar to the 695 Biposto.Also realy love the new aggressive look of the front bumper.

Re: Panda Cross to Abarth 595 Comp 180?

Performance should match that grey limited edition Fiesta ST 200. Saw one other day. They're certainly different. And make an Abarth look cheap 23k.

Re: Panda Cross to Abarth 595 Comp 180?

Curse you, Squadrone Rosso - I've spent the last hour looking at 595 180's on Autotrader! There's a tasty low-mileage yellow one just down the road from me...

Typically, the listings are often vague on the spec. What are the visual clues for the performance pack? Some of them appear to have Sabelt seats like yours - can those be specified individually, or only as part of the performance pack?

Re: Panda Cross to Abarth 595 Comp 180?

Performance pack's no longer showing up on the configurator for the Competizione 180

Edit: but on the bright side, they're available at 0% finance on the Privilege scheme this quarter!

I feel a plan coming on...

You've had the Cross best part of 2 1/2 years Gareth. Longer than most of cars I've had. Used to see yellow Abarth on motorway. They do look good.

Re: Panda Cross to Abarth 595 Comp 180?

I usually keep them much longer than that! Just looking to put some fun back into my motoring life, before they regulate all the fun out of it. Pity they don't do a 4x4 Abarth, for those days when my farm track is slippy.

Re: Panda Cross to Abarth 595 Comp 180?

Love the carbon fibre dash! Is that the standard fit?

I'm going to look at a low-mileage yellow one this weekend, en route to Cambridge.

How are your neighbours coping with the popping and banging from that exhaust? I can imagine some South Walian rolling of the eyes, and comments like "Oh, it's him again - another noisy new car!", but at least their early mornings are undisturbed by the wraith-like silence of the C-HR.
