Identify a Abarth GP

Hi, I am looking at this car ( I am in New Zealand)

Edit sorry cant post url's yet. It is on a website trademe.co.nz, just search abarth, it is a black car.

Is this a genuine Abarth?, my son thinks it should have the Abarth Scorpion on the Steering wheel centre and not the Fiat one. Also should it be 6 speed and not 5? If it is not an Abarth what it is's exact model. Please excuse me if I have this wrong, not many of these around in NZ.
Anything major to check when looking to buy one of these?
Thanks

edit: had a look at the site
(https://www.trademe.co.nz/motors/use...49689a488f112c)
, seems the car hasn't the abarth front lights, and also too many stickers tbh, plus looks like on high-heels :-(

Most probably a T-Jet, which btw isn't that bad ;-)

Yea, so that's a GP T-Jet. Same basic engine but about a 30bhp disadvantage over the Abarth.

Re: Identify a Abarth GP
