Topolino Grigio

Although Bellezza Nera, my Panda 100hp, isn't sold yet, I think it's time to present my Abarth 500, named Topolino Grigio (grey mouse).

ATM it's still on 135 HP, but as soon as Panda is sold it's going to get chiptuned.


Campovolo grey, the best colour IMHO, Climatecontrol, Xenon and leather. I would have liked the Panoroof and Esseesse wheels, but I'm pretty pleased with how it is.

Re: Topolino Grigio

Although it's probably considered to be sacriligious, something had to be added.

But it's like: Now you see me... Now you don't

Re: Topolino Grigio

That looks a very nice car, the red in the wheel centres tie it all together well. Ours is Topolino Rosso ! With the Ferrari similar shield badge showing a prancing mouse ��

Re: Topolino Grigio

As a matter of fact I'm considering the prancing mouse badge myself

Car is big fun! Yesterday I went for a little drive with my boattrailer (to try everything out) and I have to keep reminding me that the boat is on.

Afterwards detached towhook and electrics back in their places and it's invisible again.

The car looks great.

What tow bar did you fit? All that Iíve seen so far say you need to cut the diffuser, but if yourís is cut, you canít see it.

This hook is a must on a Dutch car...

Your car is nice.

This is the one I fitted. And yes there is a small square cut out in the bottom of the diffuser. Just large enough for the hook and the releaseknob.
I have however used a different solution for the electrics.

This year it's not going to happen, but I have to be able to tow my RIB to Croatia

Today I drove across the country (in a Ducato) and saw 4 (yes I was shocked) grey Abarths

At least it"s not a problem to only drive in the left lane with this one

I really love the white on your car, but the red accents are growing on me.

Re: Topolino Grigio

Thank goodness all different colourschemes were available
BTW Bellezza Nera is sold (yeserday) to a very enthusiastic couple. They are going to love it to bits I think. So it has found a good home.

Yes, the 100hp is the only Panda Sport so far, and quick enough to be called Sport.

I'm absolutely certain there is a market for a Panda Sport with a decent engine in it.
A 120-135 hp T-Jet powered 5-door Panda could be a nice alternative for 500/595 Abarth's, if 5-doors are desired.

Re: Topolino Grigio

I'd go for silver on your car.
Probably TuneX, but they are on holiday now.

I would choose a Abarth specific tuner like, SAVALI, Squadra, or H&S Corse.
