20 valves, 2 litres and 147hp of pure italian muscle...

Some of you might know already but I have given babz my cinq due to her Sei being writted off. She needs a new car and insurance probs arent paying out out for atleast another month or so. We are moving at the end of the week and the rental company arent likely to let her take the courtesy car with her as were moving halfway up the country! Ive done the manly () thing and given her my car! Not free but ill take whatever the payout is for it whenever it comes through.

Anyway, Obviously I need a new car now... I didnt want something boring or slow as my insurance has just dropped so I can actually afford something with a bigger engine!

I looked at a number of cars to go for... Honda CRX Vtec, Rover 216 Coupe 1.8vvc, Alfa 145 cloverleaf, Alfa 146 2.0 16v.. etc.

But that would mean leaving the fiat crew.. which i didnt want to

soooooooo....

Say hello to my Bravo HGT Painted in Imola Blue (well its got a different name but its the same as cinq imola blue). Excellent condition body except for one slight dint in the drivers door under the mirror. Ital push out though and is only minor.

Interior is in lovely condition. everything works! only prob is the airbag light is on Im not really that bothered tbh. Im not paying £40+ to get rid of a light

Engine is average milage for the age (83k) but had the cam belt dont at 79k which is what attracted me to the car. Alot of service history etc and the owner mentioned boo and some other forums so Its been looked after by an "enthusiast" atleast

Drives great! hit 3500k and its like a turbo kicking in and that noise sooooo nice!!!

Good thing though is that the cinq is still about Photoshoot coming soon

Nice clean car Chris.

That's never the same as Cinq Imola though.
