Abarth 595 Competizione 180 bhp test drive and review
« on: June 24, 2015, 04:23:32 pm »
Here we go then guys, review video is finally finished  ;)
And before anyone comments, the gear knob is wrong on the car, should be a metal one and the price in the commentary is also incorrect.

    John it sounds fantastic.

    I know it's subjective but when you look at the upgraded components the Comp has it really does deliver a street performance package that's exciting. It might not be the best at what it does but it's much more interesting than most.

    Excellent review and really can't wait to pick mines up. Can't believe how loud it sounds even inside the cabin! :D

    After having spent 9 hours in one on Monday, it's not THAT loud inside the cabin, I think John had an external mic connected up.

    As Porthos said, inside it's actually quite suppressed. The exhaust note is coming from an external mic mounted in the centre of the bumper.

    Sounds great with the titanium exhaust. Did they blank out the speedo in that video or is it just the angle?

    There may have been a small amount of insulation tape over the speedo to avoid unnecessary questions......
