That is gorgeous. And what's more, the person who has owned that and only put 3 miles on it needs a good kicking.

Undeniably pretty, but a car which is too rare to drive is never going to be cool

Re: Abarth 205 A

Cool assuming it could be driven. But the practice of buying cars to keep in museums and never drive is not cool.

Re: Abarth 205 A

Beautiful, simply beautiful, whether it's being razzed about in a classic car race series or sat in a museum it's beautiful.

If I picked up said supermodel from said swanky restaurant and she came out with the line "OMG, an Abarth 205 A, there were only 3 of these made, where di you get it from?" I would wait on her hand and foot for the rest of her life, she needn't lift a finger!

Re: Abarth 205 A

That is so cool.. How I'd love to be rich enough to either buy one of these, or get a 100% perfect replica made in carbon fibre and throw a 2.0 Twinny in for good measure.

Sub-zero for me

But that's not the car's fault.
