Iconic, interesting, unusual, fairly rare, pedigree by the shed load. The Italian equivalent of an RS Escort, still a boxy saloon but with that certain je ne sais quoi that makes it just that bit more exotic and special and somehow less Chavvy.

Cool.




And if you have a genuine Gp IV version it is sub zero.

It's a sort of thinking man's RS Escort with a hint of added exotic. I really, really like it. I especially like the green 2-door one in the pic. I think it's too lairy looking to be sub-zero but it's definitely cool.

I went with cool. I liked the 131 (Mirafiori) and my mate had one, It sounded bloody brilliant and I was not an Italian car fan then. Another college mate had one too
However my pal's did have more rust than metal I think.

I like the boxy design but think this Abarth doins with the arches looks ****. That does not make it uncool though.
