    Nice to see the 500 Abarth's time on the board was above the Lotus Elise and Alfa 8C...  ;D

    being a, well an ex elise (from today!) owner im going to defend it! - the track was really wet when the elise went round!
    still very impressive  ;D the 500 looked cool as well

    Don't recall seeing a "W" on the Elise time denoting wet track Alex  ;D
    Seriously that did surprise me seeing that.

    Yes, I laughed at that too.

    Seemed to get a pretty good reception, though obviously not quirky enough for the pube-headed donkey  ::)

    Now, when are they taking the GPA SS round the track?

    I think the review was pretty good considering Fiats aren't normally respected on TG. Goes to show that the brand is extremely lucky to have the Abarth name and this should help them gain a the respect they deserve!!

    I've got  a feeling these 500 Abarths are gonna sell like hot cakes ;)

    Both my e-mail account and phone have been going non stop this morning. Unusual for Clarkson not to be scathing! He was singing its praises and I was waiting for him to say BUT, but he didn't  ;D

    Figured you and most dealers would get busy to day, its amazing how Top Gear has such an effect just due to Clarksons (often off kilter) remarks about cars.
