Alessi Panda anyone?

For sale a couple of miles from where I live Wife was driving home from work and spotted it, told me it was a Mamy because it was parked behind a little brick wall which covered up the white. Not quite sure what to make of it but it's quirky for sure If anyone is interested which I doubt they will be, then PM me for details.

Re: Alessi Panda anyone?

Oh I remember when this came out. I mean, I like a bright colour and am p1ssed that FIAT seem incapable of keeping Broom/Gorse yellow going. I even like Goa Orange in particular.............but...........this...... This is just wrong on so many different levels.

Odd thing is, 40 years ago I was doing this exact painjob to my matchbox cars with my mum's nail varnish. I have wasted my talent.

It's different though at least! I would probably have one if the contrast wasn't so jarring

Re: Alessi Panda anyone?

I love the Alessi, the only problem is the c-pillar window. The glass is supposed to be orange, but rarely is. Or they changed it from the press shots.

Re: Alessi Panda anyone?

And just like the sportings, Fiat registered every single Alessi sold incorrectly with the DVLA, and they've all been registered as Eleganza's, so are a nightmare to insure if doing it properly!

Re: Alessi Panda anyone?

I quite like them. But 4k is delusional. I can have a nice 100hp for that kind of money.

Re: Alessi Panda anyone?

The orange is my fave one, the black and green ones aren't quite as nice.

Love it!

Bit pricey at 4000 though but kept in good condition with low miles you could be on to a future classic.

Re: Alessi Panda anyone?

It seemed in fairly good condition thankfully. But not for 4k for sure!

I'm not so sure I could live with the orange interior...

Just found this, so an old post resurrected. I have one of these. The rear windows were dressed in orange vinyl, which faded to a yellowy colour. Like the one in the pic, I've spent half a day peeling the vinyl off to reveal a standard black edged window. It looks fine. Unless you knew the original spec, you'd never know it was not as intended.
Thanks Aston Martin thanked for this post
