    Step 1. Find a congested city
    Step 2. Drive like an Italian
    Step 3. Laugh your ass of.

    I've done it multiple times in a cooper S.

    Abarth is a fun little car but I could never get used to the driving position. For the same money I'd rather get a GTI or Cooper S... Did you test the competition too?

    Reminds me of my dearly departed 135i. If yours is black sapphire with coral red interior it would be exactly the same

    Yes. I tested both of those cars. (and 4 or 5 others as well.)

    Driving position felt great for me in the Abarth. (I guess I'm shaped like an Italian.)

    I liked the way the Abarth handled, the sound it makes, the interior, and it just felt better and more fun to drive.

    You sure you can live with a manual transmission in NYC?

    The car sounds amazing and the gray metallic + rims look great in person. Congrats!

    It is black sapphire metallic but with the black boston interior. Coral red would have been beautiful.

    BSM is truly a gorgeous color when it's all cleaned up.....fantastic depth.

    Was passed by a 458 on the way home in black. Traffic was a steady 80mph and it just burbbled past in almost silence.

    The thing has such a duality to it; lithe and slippery like a ninja but with such road presence that you can't miss it. It strikes me more as a jungle cat than a wild horse - pure confidence without arrogance.
