They need to stop photoshopping the ride height lower that really winds me up.  Lol.

I picked a leaflet up today about one.  Will upload a copy later.

I thought the same when I looked at it. To be fair a lot of companies do the same including tinting the windows all round. I remember VW did the same with the ride height on the Scirocco which looks like it's on stilts in the flesh!

    It's a shame they didn't release this as a 180hp 595 Comp as it's not far from the spec I would have (but I want 180hp and Sablets)  ;D

    Really it's just a Custom with a set of Competizione wheels. Apparently the carbon side stripes don't look so good in the flesh. Interior is standard Custom.

    Cough  :whistle:

    it'll be similar to the Bi-Colore special edition launched earlier this year minus the two-tone paint.

    Thanks for your help. I'm getting a red one so I think the callipers and centre of the alloys will be red too. Hopefully I'll pick it up on the 1st September so can't wait now.

    Not quite sure what the differences are, maybe apart from the wheels, from standard but I am sure you will enjoy driving it anyway. Good to see another A500/595 in Norfolk, especially not far away from me! I know there is one or two of us but still rarely see another one - will look out for another red one! Good choice!
    Nov 2012 A500, officiano red, 17' petals but otherwise standard (wife beats me severely about the head and body if I talk about customising but I did buy a logoed folding umbrella!) I just love it - the car that is! well, and the wife!!

    I would have thought that the Trofeo Edition might have at least come in Trofeo Grey?  ???

    Finally got it after a two week delay. I've read posts where people say they couldn't stop smiling when they first drove their Abarth and I've thought it can't be that good but sure enough, no matter how hard I tried, I couldn't wipe the massive probably slightly creepy grin off my face today. I must have looked like the Cheshire cat. It is simply awesome.

    I can't wait to give it a proper wash and give it the autoglym hd wax treatment.

    I have one question though and this is for people with standard Abarths or Trofeos and that is when you completely fill the tank with fuel what does your range say? Mine said 260 and then went up to 280 something after a few miles. Thanks :)

    Wow what a beauty.... I was torn between the grey and black. My wife supports Everton so red cars are off the menu here.  :o
       At least I was allowed to buy one so she is not all bad :whistle:

    I liked all three of the colours but I've always loved a Ferrari in red and since thats never going to happen a red Abarth is about as close as I'm going to get!
