Re: top gear : tonight 500 abarth

I remember James May review of the normal 500. It was pretty much accepted as a fashionable good looking car, But he didnt like it with the Mjet engine. Says it was "rubbish".

Abarth review should be good I hope!

Re: top gear : tonight 500 abarth

Thanks for the reminder ... be nice to see one in action. This is the ONLY one we saw in Italy. We went to every Fiat dealer we could and found this in the back of a garage in Maranello .... we spoke no Italian and the nice young man spoke no English - but he let us have a good look at the car and gave me an Abarth pin badge. How sweet Really want one now. It was lush - all the white interior in a standard 500 is replaced with black - it is VERY COOLAND ITALIAN!

No probs Ricardo, the pleasure was all mine!

Honestly, I have NEVER seen any car with BLACK headlining! The black bodywork set it off a treat, very dark and moody.

I don't know what the grey and white will have inside? Can't wait to see some.

Roll on 8pm ... oh dear, does it clash with Brucie and the Dancin' results??!!**

Re: top gear : tonight 500 abarth

Think its stupid that the short test drive by a f*cking idiot can shape a cars future.....can people not test drive cars themselves?

Good point I suppose, part of fun in buying a car is test driving different types.

watched it and what a review! Positive from clarkson - and to compare it to a mk1 golf gti, that is quite something.......
Just wish I could talk the wife into swapping her 1.4 sport! and order the flat grey coloured one..
