    At the end of the day, each to their own, i noticed a difference thats all that matters.  A lighter car will go faster, its simple.  How much faster, well it might be 0.001 of a second, buts its faster, and costs nothing. 

    For someone to say its "Definatly untrue" is ridiculous.

    Depending on the specification, just over 1050kg, if I am not mistaken.

    i stripped my saxo out and it made a huge difference, about 150kg in total, all interior trim apart from two front seats, and dash all sound deadening, spare wheel jack and hangers ect and moved battery to the boot and to say the least it was quick a 100bhp car that could make much bigger stuf look stupid :)

    (a saxo vts will make the agp and 500's look stupid in standard form just take a look at the 0-60 times)

    weight is the only reason bikes are as fast as they are, it is all about power to weight ratio (iv not got the urge again to rip all the stuff out of mine)

    Around 7.6 to 7.8 seconds as standard?... That doesnt really make the Abarths look stupid  :whistle:

    i does considering it only has 120bhp and 90 ish nm of torque and is only about 50-100kg lighter than a 500

    im not dissing the abarths because there lovely cars in there own right styling ect, but as hot hatch/super min's that there made out to be there disgraced buy a car thats 14 years older(mk1 vts) can out perform in 0-60 times and handles better, in my mind is just silly.


    Sell your Abarth and get a saxo then  :whistle:

    dont need to i still have the saxo ;)

    the only issue these days is ware,  other wise i would still be using it day to day thats the problem with a 10 year old car


    at the end of the day thats my opinion and having both you do see the flaws of the abarth but the upsides when doing 70+ miles a day out weigh the downs so im happy with the abarth :)

    100kg less and 15 bhp less, again, that doesnt really make the Abarths look stupid, that seems about right to me
