Shmee150 Buys 595C Abarth “My Other Car Has a V10” [Video]
Shmee150 is perhaps our favorite supercar spotter from Europe. He gave us updates from the 2013 Gumball 3000 rally, traveled to Monaco and is an all-round swell guy. His supercar of choice happens to be a stunning Audi R8 V10 Spider, but since that’s in for a service he decided to buy something small.
He thought about an Audi A1 but the misses got involved and they ended up going for a Fiat 595C Turismo. The little Abarth makes 160 hp from its 1.4L turbo engine and is equipped with a double-clutch MTA gearbox. When you have to drive through busy London traffic every day. You just press a button on the center console for drive, neutral or reverse. It looks like a remarkably elegant idea for stop-and-go driving.
We found it quite amusing that the license plate says “My Other Car Has a V10” and that the little Fiat has been nicknamed the *Shmeenquecento,. Maybe this car will inspire you other supercar lovers when it’s time to get a city car!
