They are special, Lefteris. Like your garage too. Notice a slight ramp upon entrance ? How's your new Abarth in terms of ride and handling ? Interested because few years ago, I got hold of a 1958 Abarth 750 GT Zagato myself. I simply fell in love with the shape and history of Abarth. The previous owner replaced the original engine with an A112, changed to short gear ratios, and other modifications for hillclimb use mainly. Not exactly suited for cruising down highways, but a car full of fun. Must be the loudest in noise, hottest in terms of heat, and wildest in terms of ride even tho the speed is not terribly fast, the sensations more than amplified by the feedbacks. Interested as to how the "new" Abarth is. w/ smiles Jimmy

Hello Jimmy
The new Abarth is a very modern little car and a very fast one too (163hp for the esseesse and 181hp if you add the larger turbo, the mods are very cheap and are with in the guarantee also because they are from the Abarth!
The ride is not this smooth as the standard FIAT 500 but not bad either!
No problems at all so far and this one is one of the first one they made and one of the first 10 cars in Greece.
It is large enough for four people with a few bags and very steady on high speeds 180KM +
(top speed 200km+)
Regards
Lefteris

Early this year, I have experienced sitting in the Abarth for a short time. I remember the car being quick and nimble with relatively stiff suspension for the size of this car. Very attractive car for the right purpose. I do see quite a few lately running around here (not the Abarths tho).
If you're interested to see, here's few pics of mine. w/ smiles Jimmy

Now that's an amazingly good looking little car! I've actually never seen one before. Does pic 1 signify you've had it stripped and refurbished completely? Congratulations on owning something as nice as this. Cheers! Irvin

The car was totally redone by the previous owner in Australia. I bought this about three years ago. Not getting much use lately tho. Glad you like it. Very naughty car. w/ smiles Jimmy
