Summary:

A car full of charm!

Faults:

I have installed a new 2" exhaust system.

New front and rear brakes. New brake lines.

The alternator have got broken, twice.

And just like almost every a112 Abarth, a lot of rust!

General Comments:

I love this car. It's not fast, but it's so small, and the combination of a light car with the wheels placed so close to the corners of the car, makes it feel like a go-cart in the corners!

The interior is very ugly and simple, and it's very noisy inside the car. But all of this bad things make the car having a personality. And with a personality follows a charm.

I love this car!

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

So if you love it how come you put a blue bad face on it?
