Burning smell

I got a Seicento sporting and I get a horrid burning smell when I give it welly and when its pulling hard up a hill. It smells exactly like when brakes are stuck on but it cant be the brakes as the smell comes without even touching the brakes. The clutch doesnt slip but I have been told it may be on its way out. The cars only done 23000 miles and I wouldnt expect the clutch to go so soon. Thanks for any help.

Might possibly be the clutch.
Life depends on what driving style you have and wether you slip the clutch accidently.
Best get this looked at otherwise when the clutch goes you'll have to get a tow home.
How old is it, is it covered by warranty??


It were proper Bo i tell thee!!
