Your Abarth / My grey 595 comp
« on: November 07, 2017, 11:13:39 PM »
Hi all.
Here is my grey pocket rocket. It has the mta gearbox and soft top.
We love this car to bits, it never stops putting a smile on my face.
Thankfully someone makes cars like this because cars today are really dull, I grew up dreaming about Italian cars, if I won the lottery I would buy lots of fast Fiats, Lancias and Alfas. Just something about them. Abarth is a gold plated 100% legendary name, even under the ownership of Fiat. 131 sport, rallying Deltas, mental mental 037's just so so bloody bonkers. If I could have known when I was 18 thrashing my Alfasud 1.5 green cloverleaf around that one day they would bring back not only the 500 but Abarth too WOW!! I looked on ebay today and a sud like mine is on for 17000, I paid 350 for my cloverleaf and 120 for a rust free 1.3 left hand drive 5 door 20 odd years ago. Back to Abarth, brilliant car!!!

Abarth 500, 595 & 695 / Total shut down!

Hi all. This is my first post so hello!

Apologies if this is a repeat post, I have searched the forum for the problem and I can't find anything anywhere (not just here).

Basically I drove for about a mile with the engine managment light on and the car sounding funny, bit raspy, when I stopped all the lights went out on the dash the engine cut out and the car has completely died! Nothing works, any ideas?

Normally if the local dealer was any good I would phone them first but they have been total pains with this car and my Alfa so they are a last resort. The car is a 595 CC with the selespeed gearbox, 63 plate.

Best car I've ever owned even broken down :)

Please help!
