Fiat 500 C Abarth 1.4 16v Turbo T-Jet

The sporty Abarth 500C is great fun to drive with its turbo charged engine. It’s a proper hot hatch with the added bonus of a convertible top. The price has come down a little but it is still rather expensive particularly when you see how much fun can be had in the TwinAir Fiat 500C for a lot less. The Abarth brand, interior and styling details however do go along way to make it feel special in a way very few other cars can. The aluminium pedals and stitched leather steering wheel make it feel like an Italian exotic with a much higher price tag.

The Fiat 500 Convertible is unashamedly retro but that’s no bad thing. Rather than following the herd and trying to squeeze a folding hardtop into the little car Fiat have instead kept the door pillars in the same style as the cult classic 1950’s Nuova, and fitted a soft top in between. The original managed to combine a movie star chic with mass market practicality. The new car looks to repeat this and with its super efficient engines appeals to the bank account as well as the heart.
