  1. MiTo QV Sport vs Abarth Punto Scorpione

    South Africa
    Ok so they have the same engine.. Similar power outputs, Abarth a little stronger. And they have different turbo's fitted. And I am assuming they have the same gearbox. Are these cars mapped differently tho? From standstill to about 160kmh the Punto is quicker than my sister's MiTo QV but after...

  5. Mito QV v's 500 Abarth

    Alfa MiTo
    Just for the craic, I wanted to get opinions on these... I know this is an Alfa forum, so things might be slightly biased, but... I borrowed a 155bhp Mito for a week from my dealer a couple of years ago & loved every minute of it... It was fully specked and since then I thought I'd get one if I...
  6. Abarth Scorpione 1000kms in a day. Was it yay or nay?

    South Africa
    Drove 1000kms stopping only once for breakfast and fuel.. Cons: Ride does become a little harsh when doing 1000kms in a day. Took its toll later on in the day. Its not as fuel efficient as I hoped (especially considering the consumption I got with the GMA. And I drove a little faster with the...
  7. Abarth esseesse

    General Motoring Discussion
    My work colleague weighed his suzuki sport in for an 11 plated esseesse today...Very impressed. Great if you want to destroy every filling in your mouth and automatically make your teeth bite into your lips every time you go over a pebble. Very quick for a nipper though! Looks great with the...

  9. Farewell Abarth 500

    South Africa
    So after a lot of thought I have decided to let the Abarth 500 go. The idea was that the 500 and my GTA be my fun cars with the 4C and the Giulietta the daily driver. The Giulietta was sacrificed for the 4C due to the deposit requirements for the 4C. So the Abarth had to stand in as the daily...

  12. My thoughts on the Abarth 500

    General Motoring Discussion
    Three months of ownership so far and i still smile every time i look at it. Stylish small and fast :cool: How it rides: It sits quite hard on the road which is nice. Its stable and feels very safe. Brakes are not bad either but could be better. (Make it esseesse though and things change.)...

  14. Original Abarth 600 bits.

    General Motoring Discussion
    A good friend of mine in Massachussetts has unfortunately had a very bad incident, which involved a tree falling onto his original Fiat/Abarth 600 project!!!!! It is totally irretrievable, but there are many many parts escaped that are in perfect condition. The lucky part of this is that it was...
  15. Abarth 500 'SS' vs Abarth Punto Scorpione vs Future G

    South Africa
    Hi guys, Okay I am totally confused about what to do. I got to drive the Scorpione for 1600kms and its FAR better than the 500 SS To be honest I am not enjoying the 500 anymore. Thats how good the Scorpione is. So I got deals from Chatz and Wonderboom (Chatz offered me a better deal than...
