You may know Marchettino for uploading lots of excellent supercar videos, mainly from Italy. Well, he has just uploaded a video of him driving around the famous Imola track, or, to give its full name, Autodromo Internazionale "Enzo e Dino Ferrari" Imola.
The lap is completed in his very own modified Fiat 500 Abarth which seems like a hoot to drive and, while not blisteringly fast, it is definitely more enjoyable and connected than some, more expensive sports cars, even ones with rear-wheel drive. It even snaps into oversteer when he lifts off - proper hot hatch behavior there.
The little 500, powered by the 1.4-liter turbo engine, pushing out at least 135 hp also sounds great and is a major contributing factor to the overall fun experience of the car.
