Dont really see the point in this at all, similar idea to the AM thing that was banded about a few months ago & will only be on sale to current Ferrari customers.

Whats not to understand?

Fiat own Ferrari, the Abarth 500 Essesse is only 150bhp this has 180bhp which is the same as the Abarth Grande Essesse

180bhp in a car the size of a shoe is going to be tremendous fun not to mention a nice little weekday/rainy weekend car or car for the mrs

Awesome.

Seen a couple of 500 Abarths on the road with men driving and can't help but think it looks silly. But I guess they're a real drivers car, like an MX5.

Saying that, I'd have on

I also like that because it isn't pretending to be a Ferarri, it's still branded as a Fiat 500.

Where as the Aston Martin Cygnet is just a Toyota in disguise.

no no no......you didnt read what I put after 'dont see the point'. I dont see the point in only having it on offer to ferrari owners.

Same as the AM thing thats basically a tweeked toyota iQ.

Is it meant to be something to fuck the wife off with so she doesnt kurb the alloys on the enzo?

aparently the fiat 500 weighs just under 1100kg

Ferrari owners could buy them then sell them off of big bucks

Or would they only be aloud to sell them to Ferrari owners
