    It sounds great indeed!  :thumb:

    I'd personally get rid of the 2-tone colour and replace the wheels with some better looking ones and then it would look good, too.

    Just wait for the Esseesse model with the much nicer alloys, likely lowered, better brakes, larger bore exhaust and most importantly, more power ;) I wonder what makes it sound this good, is it the M/A? larger bore exhaust? different mapping to our 595s? Interesting!

     I must say, that sounds pretty good and I rather like the look of them too ;D  It's a shame if they really are to be as expensive as I have seen suggested.  Academic in my case anyway, but do we really know how much they are likely to be in the UK?
    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!!

    Harry it isn't suggested, that is the price.... It has been on the Abarth Configurator for a good few weeks now. Starts at 29.5k for a basic model, with the paint I'd want, plus the visbility park and upgraded sound system it is 32k.... really overpriced IMO.

    I agree, like the look and sound a lot but they are seriously overpriced - especially when compared with the similar power MX5..   Either way still looking forward to the next more powerful version to come!!

    is an ss version actually on the pipeline or just rumours? I really hope they offer more options like sabelts and nicer wheels.
    Now with added monza fun :P

    Just rumours Savlos. Seems logical looking at the path they took with the other cars in the Abarth range, the only problem with the 124 is I think Mazda are calling a lot of the shots with regards to power and specs with this car...
