Abarth ownership is, first and foremost, about making a statement, the same as it has always been and they have hit this nail squarely on the head.
If you want the most stylish and funky warm hatch on the market, this is unquestionably it. This Abarth 595 Turismo looks great and is quick enough to entertain yet not so overblown that it brings with it massive bills, it makes an absolutely cracking used buy.
Our car is simply stunning, it is beautifully finished in Scorpion Black Metallic with a complimenting Red Leather Upholstery, has covered a mere 15,500 Miles and comes with a Full Service History. The previous keepers were fastidious and it was also previously sold by ourselves.
Not everyone can afford a Lamborghini, Ferrari or Maserati.
The Abarth exists for those of us who can’t afford to go shopping within the Supercar set, but still desire a healthy dose of Italian flair and madness packaged in a vehicle that you could conceivably drive every day.
There’s a certain sense of theatre that oozes from thIs Abarth 595's pores, even when you’re going nowhere in traffic.
Power is supplied by the proven 1.4 Litre, 160 BHP Turbo Petrol engine mated to the 5 Speed Manual Transmission which provides sensational performance to go with this car's incredible handling.
Economy is also very good for this kind of performance hatchback, with 47.1 MPG (ECC) achievable.
Find a section of open road where you can stretch the Abarth’s legs and it truly flies as you shift up through the gears, it pops and crackles on the overrun and accelerates rapidly. It’s as if it comes alive progressively the more rapidly you’re travelling. The suspension provides exceptional handling through sweeping bends, and you’ll be left thinking the Abarth is an oversized go-kart such is it’s balance and seat of the pants feel.
It’s an absolute riot on the open road, and you don’t need to be breaking the speed limit to be grinning like a Cheshire cat.
This 'Turismo' model is very nicely equipped and additional features include * 17" 10 Spoke Diamond Finish Alloy Wheels, * Blue & Me with USB & Aux In, * Dark Tinted Rear Glass, * Electrochromatic Rear View Mirror, * Titanium Grey Effect Sports Grille, * 50/50 Split Folding Rear Seat, * Leather Steering Wheel, * Sports Seats, * Drivers Knee & Window Airbags.
We should rejoice the fact that in this day and age cars like this brilliant Abarth 595 exist at all.
It is all about the fun of driving, the enjoyment of getting behind the wheel and smiling every time you do so.
