Younger, topless model on order
« on: July 04, 2010, 09:23:01 am »
Hi all, I have been lurking on this forum for a few months but have not really introduced myself properly.

I am pleased to say that I placed an order for an Abarth 500c yesterday, with Ben at Research Abarth. It is with thanks to him and Abarth UK for the tickets to the Moving Motor Show where I took an A500c up the hill. It was wicked, and I had to apologise to the host for my slightly spirited driving. The F1 paddle shift was a revelation even though I prefer manual gearboxs. They had two A500c's for drives, one in red with black fabric and the other one in white with tan leather. There were no bi-colour's but I had already seen it when it made its debut at the Geneva Show last March.

It will be replacing the current Fiat 500 Sport which I am sad to let go. Mustn't try not to get sentimental!

Delivery is expected September 2010.

While the standard equipment list is extensive including rear parking sensors and xenon headlights, my specification is as follows:- bi-colour black and white; black leather; white 17" petals; red liner package and automatic climate control. Absolutely no decals and I also requested chrome door mirror cappings and Supergard. Windstop can wait a while.

I'll better not mention how much it read on the order form though!

Really looking forward to it.

    Sounds good. How long have you got to wait for it?

    I had already written in my original post that it is September 2010. So that's about seven weeks at the earliest, and eleven weeks at the latest. At least the wait is shorter considering I waited nearly four months for my Fiat 500!!

    The forum will keep me sane during the interim  ;D

    Thanks for the good wishes. And thank you for the helping hand towards personal plates; I have already got a personal plate which is being separated from the Fiat 500 at the moment. Not Abarth related though. The budget isn't there for the time being due to gonig slightly mad on the options during the speccing up but who knows in the future?

    A slight re-surrection of this thread....

    I am delighted to make it known that my A500C has arrived at the showroom late yesterday at last  :thumb:

    Just over fourteen weeks wait. But due to outstanding issues with the Fiat 500 and my wish to give the Research workshop guys ample time to do their job throughby - I requested Supergard and a few dealer non-standard extras, I will not be collecting it until Tuesday 12th October. Another week won't hurt then!

    Good timing for the Black County meet then!

    The final count down begins....

    Yes I can see what you mean; I testdrove a hatchback A500 2 years ago but at that time, I had the F500 only six months. It was unviable to swap so soon, but I kept a promise to myself that I would get an A500 next. No if's or but's.

    I guess it was perfect timing when Abarth announced they were going to make the A500C. I saw it make its debut at the Geneva Show and thought 'this is GOING to be my next car'

    I went to Research a week later to make inquiries about prices. Two weeks ago we came to an arrangement and put down a deposit. That was in March.

    I'm really pleased and well chuffed.
