Re: 500 Abarth

Uncool.

It's trying too hard to be hardcore and unfortunately suffers from being the "fast roller skate" version of a fashion item as a result.

Re: 500 Abarth

as with the AGP, i think in time we will look back fondly on the 500A, for now though i don't like it. Its not essentially a bad car though so i think time will be good to it.

Agree, for now i think the AGP is slightly cooler but times and opinions change, the a500 will become cool eventually for certain.

I think both are cool. They both have that character which small cars from no other manufacturers can manage.

Re: 500 Abarth

Split decision so far - it's lurching between uncool and subzero!! Sorry too many around, I've just sent it back to uncool!!

Re: 500 Abarth

Uncool. Tries too hard. Goes for massive masculine styling, trying to undo the femininity of the ordinary 500. Style conscious at the same time. Big dislike of booster gauge on dash. Just my opinion...

Re: 500 Abarth

Uncool for me ...... I like the 500 a lot and a fast one does sound fun but for some reason they just look "girlie" and a girlie car that goes fast is like using a stiletto as a running shoe

I do like the looks of the 500, certainly, it's a lot better than the new beetles and minis, but I wouldn't drive 1, cos they are a bit girly, lol! I'll stick with my Grande Punto, which Ben won't put on the cool wall!!!! :banghead:

Its not ben, its all the moderating team that can add cars to the wall - we just choose not to because, well because refer to your discussion with mrcinquecento on whichever thread it was - he hot the nail pretty square on the head as to why.
