Share your Abarth experiences with Performance Car Online...
« on: January 23, 2009, 10:47:11 pm »
This applies to both Punto and future 500 owners really, hence why its in here. Performance Car magazine runs an online section of its long term reports where owners can contribute about their cars. Personally, I'd love to read and see pretty pictures of Abarths, especially the 500, and as owners will almost certainly receive them before the magazines long term fleets do you'll be in there first with getting day to day thoughts out about the car.

I contribute with my Lupo, and its hardly a chore, just share what you get upto. The longtermer online section of the website is here if you want to have a look at whats being featured currently; http://performancecarmagazine.co.uk/longtermers.asp

They are currently asking for contributors at this address, which has a contact email; http://performancecarmagazine.co.uk/longtermeritem.asp?longtermerID=111

So if your handy with your words and camera and have a little bit of free time drop them an email, I think we need to get Abarth represented!

    No one seemed much interested in this the first time around, but perhaps a free subscription would tempt you?

    Had an email from the editor to say from now on we'd get a copy of the mag in the post every month, which is nice.

    There's a VERY thorough review on the 500A and AGP in Performance Car mag.

    They got a 0-60 time of 7.6 seconds according to their v-box, and got a faster track time, that a Civic Type-R. This was with the AGP
    Abarth Grande Punto, White, Stripes, Climate, Standard Wheels.

    I have just had a reply from them and they said if I submit a written article by the 13th april they will have a read and maybe place it in the May issue. Now I need to think of what to write! I'll let you know how it goes.

    Excellent, look forward to reading whoever gets up there first. Would be nice to see a Punto up there too.
