A quick update on Scorpione - that's the black one: 10 units will be made available in RHD form for the UK market.  Price expected to be around €21,000 (note that's Euros, not GBP) excluding VAT, VED and reg fees.  It's not clear when the UK market units will land, but elsewhere in Europe first deliveries are expected end of June.

    £24k though! Ouch!!

    I've definitely come round to the Evo, but at 24k there's a lot of other metal you could get for similar or less cash

    £24k. More than the sum of its parts, surely?  ::)

    Yup.. Have a feeling that dealer has priced the car out of its market somewhat!

    If I think £24k then a whole load of fun new cars comes to mind

    Pure speculation on their part, I'm afraid.

    Ah well, speculation or not it does look properly evil in black with the dark alloys too - it's the Abarth that Vader would drive  8)

    That dealer seems to price their cars on the high side if you look at their stock. Looks like they a used to selling Ferraris and Maserattis rather than Abarths.

    IIRC, that's the same dealer that had the red 'Esseesse' which was just an Assetto and overpriced by about £3k, lol. /Awaits a price-drop of 20% to get any interest at all. :whistle:
