I absolutely ADORE this car and i must have it one day...I think it looks stunning (for a hot hatch) and its performance is perfectly adequate (one could argue that it's not but everybody is entitled of his opinion). Kind of pricey and the interior is kind of poor (for its cost and character) but apart from that i's perfect for me...to bad i don't have the money...:(

Somehow I don't see a car called "SS" being sold with that name in Germany....they'll have to come up with a different one.

Ooh nice. Since it's a Fiat you can probably haggle it down to ?2.50. After you persuaded the salesman to accept pounds.

I don't drive, I fly.
I am already a fan of FIATs, but this one is GREAT! :woot:
Loved the combination of red bodywork and white wheels.

Hey guys, I may be wrong but this is the first new car that nobody has complained about, don't you think?
It looks brilliant!

That looks brilliant. Don't know why they stole the "Super Sport" idea from Chevrolet though, lol.

Five Mexicans blokes will be sharing this car on a daily basis along with ten other passengers.
