Fiat own Ferrari !

So based on that logic everyone who owns a Seat or Skoda should expect their cars to be on par with an Audi R8 or a Lamborghini

I love lease deals but voted cold on this one.Not disputing the fact that it might be one of the better deals out there for this car & spec but just dont believe this is genuine value for money....This works out at circa £3.7k per annum. I'd be happy to lose that sort of money on a very premium German motor but not on a low powered, 2 seater, Italian fun-mobile.....


Please do some proper research before assuming/advising that German cars are a good idea.

Hot, because that car is just, well, Hot
This will probably go cold, but I’ve had one of these since January after seeing it on the grand tour.

yes, it’s expensive for what it is, it’s embarrassing in car parks, and it doesn’t have cup holders (they’re a £140 optional extra!!).

But, test drive one and you’ll fall in love! 3 things:

- not sure whether leasing is worth it. I’m paying about the same for mine (ex demo with lots of extras - no cup holders though!) not leasing.

- these are probably scorpione - cheaper but you lose a few things (Bose I think, leather seats)

- do not under any circumstances buy the auto! Manual is the way to go on this car

#Comment completely unrelated to the deal#

Don't people say the 2.0 Mazda MX5 version, whilst a bit slower, is actually better to drive than the Fiat/Abarth Spider because the turbo spoils the power delivery? That said I saw a Fiat Spider today, for the first time, and it looked prettier than the far more numerous new model, still nice looking IMO, MX5s I've seen. But then I think that was a standard Fiat Spider, all these contrasting panels on the the Abarth probably look silly.
If I had the money. ..I would definitely be in there....its beautiful.

In person the Abarth looks far better.

ive driven the Mazda - yeah the Abarth is a bit sluggish in the low end because of the turbo lag, but keep it above 2.5k and it’s great

the Abarth version is much better than the standard fiat

Are Fiat no longer synonymous with their popular old acronym then? This looks intriguing but I can't ignore their old rep which has made me avoid them ever since.

Car looks ok, but I'm arachnophobic, so the last thing I want is Abarth Spider.

Yes, which is why I wouldn't have one of them either ;).

I'd go for a Lambo since they're owned by Vag :).

You probably own a potting shed and green house.

I swapped from an Italian fun-mobile to a premium German motor due to fiancee having a baby.

Most dealers have demos available - fiat try to get rid of them after 400ish miles (mine had 300 on the clock).

And PCP, so same price but have the option to buy it - seems better than leasing. Either way, it's a fantastic car.

Have done plenty of research over the years through ownership, renting, borrowing other people's, etc. Overall experience has always been positive in the grand scheme of things for me personally. Not suggesting it would be a good idea for *everyone* of course...

You're right though, definitely a bad idea to buy one if you can't speak German as you'll never figure out how to operate it...

I do have a shed full of pott, so you're not far wrong and my house was green but I just painted some brown bits on it, so as to make it camouflage, now the police won't find it.

Know exactly what you mean about an "engaging car" vs a safe & sensible one. I've gone the other way, had a Merc that was beautiful but pretty boring to drive. Now recently bought an F-type R which makes you feel alive like nothing else I've ever experienced on 4 wheels.

Not sure which part of my very general, Italian reference is "curious" given that Abarth are an "Italian racing car and road car maker" as per wikipedia link below:

en.wikipedia.org/wik…rth

Pretty easy to join the dots on that one I would have thought regardless of which country the cars' nuts & bolts come from and who tightens said nuts & bolts...

The chap who designed the original Fiat 124 in 1966 was an American national so should we just say it's an American car to remain in keeping with your logic?

Let’s pretend for a moment that’s true - you recommend against a car that’s brought to us from the same company that breed the World’s best supercars (whilst mixing in the typical ‘pub goers opinion that German cars are best), yet have spent c. £90,000 on something built by Brummies (soz Brummies, nothing personal) and developed using curry tokens.

"Let's pretend for moment that's true" lol.... Alrighty then

Pretty much ....(although I didn't actually recommend against the car. I said I didn't feel this deal offered value for money) I genuinely think the car is pretty cool and quirky shall we say...? Would love to borrow one for a day whilst wearing a full face crash helmet...

But as the saying goes "opinions are like ars*holes, everyone has one"

P.S. It was £75k nearly new. Was worth every penny if I get run over by a bus tomorrow.

I do love the car "experts" on this forum all the knowledge combined from rumours, Google and Jeremy Clarkson makes them qualified to comment on vehicles they have never owned or driven, it's actually both hilarious and pitiful in equal measures.

I am no expert by any measure but have worked in the automotive industry for 20 years for some of the largest automotive companies in the world, I have been in dozens of car factories and spent years studying standard deviations for reliability, quality and throughput.

Every car manufacturer attempts (some better than others) to emulate Japanese car factories by adoption of Kaisen methodology and lean manufacturing techniques yet the Japanese cars are not the most popular.

Generations of perfecting manufacturing techniques and honing reliability are nowhere near as powerful as rumours and boy racer opinions.
