GPA SS Review in this month's Top Gear
« on: October 29, 2008, 09:32:45 pm »
Hi, hi to all the forum members i'm new here,

Just bought Top Gear this month to find a review of the SS they give it 14/20 and in summary they say its an Undiscovered gem of the small hot hatch kingdon... They also say its a shame about its launch with the fact that all the attention is on the 500 Abarth.

It looks stunning in red with the white wheels...

    Cool, cheers for the heads-up.  It's on the website now, too:

    http://www.topgear.com/uk/fiat/grande-punto-abarth

    Quite like their verdict: "A good-looking, hot Italian hatchback that isn’t going to burst on the way out of the dealership? I’m off for a lie down"

    "A proper revival of the Abarth legend at long last, after Fiat had been underplaying it for years with warm-ish hatches. The Fiat Punto Abarth looks the part and goes like stink, something we haven’t said of a Fiat for quite some time."

    Bit of a journalist c*ck-up in the review of the Esseesse, though:

    1. They say the Esseesse kit is fitted only at the factory, and
    2. They say it includes 'a more dramatic bodykit'
