Yay, I'm In!
« on: December 10, 2012, 06:28:31 pm »
Hi guys!

A recent new job has seen me come face-to-face with the 595 Competizione and I absolutely love it!

I work for a company called The Racing Bug and some time ago they approached Abarth to be a sponsor of one of their race systems. We race radio controlled cars/truck/buses/forklifts/racing-fridges etc at motorsport/automotive events. Abarth were the first ever sponsors of what has become a successful business and now I'm part of the gang.

Recently we attended Motorcycle Live, once again with Abarth, their Scorpione motorbike and a 595 also on the stand (and us racing mini-Abarth 500s).

I was there for 5 days of the show (9 days total) plus set-up and the 595 grew and grew on me until I just had to have one! I'm pretty spontaneous as a person, so to still want one a couple of weeks later is cool!

Anyway I've spoken to Abarth about making it happen, and it looks good. Just waiting for one of the sales managers at a local dealership to get back from a few days off, then I'm having proper conversations. Back to that spontaneous side and I'm hoping the dealers have something close to what I'm after as waiting 10+ weeks for a car to be prepared sounds like a lifetime!

Anyway Hello and apologies in advance for the daft questions!

Nick

    Thanks guys

    You can blame this thing..



    .. for me being on here!

    Thought I loved it, but seen so many nice Abarths since I got interested. Knowing me, I'll buy the first one I see on a forecourt!
