2 years after I got my driving license and learnt driving in real conditions, I decided it was time to get a car a little bit more "sporty" than my first one (2008 Ford Fiesta TDCI). After weeks, thinking about it every evening, I decided to buy a Fiat 500 Abarth.
When I bought it, I immediately fell in love with it. Colin Chapman said "light is right", this car is a very good illustration ! It weights 1035kg, with the turbocharged 1.4L engine boiling under the hood and the short wheelbase, it is so cool to drive. Mine was chip tuned and had an Akrapovic exhaust. It sounded like a F430 in my garage, it was so impressive to get such a sound from such a small engine !
Nickname : Angry Bird !
I kept it 2 years, and sold it earlier this year to get the Mustang. I had so much fun during these 2 years : I drove it on the Nürburgring Nordschleife several times, did some road trips to Spa Francorchamps, I don't regret any moment of life behind the steering wheel.
