bit of specs on the car ...( Ripped from the Advert)

A nice, tastefully modified Cinquecento Sporting Abarth. She has been on the forum for a long long while now and i hope she continues to be. I have owned her since December ‘07. Car is mad cheap to insure and is group 2. Small, nippy and easy to park and drive. LOW MILAGE! Only 64,000 miles! I ride a bike almost all year round. Registered in the last year of the Cinquecento before the seicento. Car is registered in ’98 on an R plate. I put brand new bilstein shocks and eibach springs, the original dampers were knackerd but i still have the original springs.
Most of her history is in pictures on the forum due to her FF owners, and she has been spoilt rotten. I have a massice thick folder of history. Anyway, here is the list of mods:

Exterior:

-100% RUST FREE!
-Bodywork and paint in original factory Imola blue and in great condition
- Genuine Fiat Abarth (stamped) front and rear bumpers, side skirts and spoiler with brake light.
- Black vinyled B pillars
- 3 x 13" speedline Alloys (see below)
-Rare 14” Punto Abarth speedline Alloys
- Bilstein gas charged shocks
- Eibach -35mm lower springs
- Janspeed Stainless steel exhaust
- Red dot front discs
-Pressed numberplate

Interior:

- Black seat belts instead of standard red ones (clash with leather)
- A sunroof that doesn't leak!
- Full Leather Interior; front and rear seats, door cards and gear stick gaitor.
- Abarth Steering wheel.
- Abarth tax disc holder
- Abarth mats

Engine:

Runs beautifully, one of the things that most impressed me about this car. The FIRE series engine still runs like a sewing machine and never let me down.

- Polished rocker cover.
- Magnecor 85mm HT Leads
- Sparco Adjustable strut brace.
- 1108cc with 1240 P60 head
- Punto 75 cam
- 40mm webber Throttle body
- ECU is McCritch chipped
- Beautifull one-off Italian Performance Carbon Fibre Induction Kit
- Thatcham Cat.1 Toad Alarm Ai 606
- Remote Central Locking.
- Car is de-cat but i have a cat for MOTs

- pioneer front speakers, tweeters on a-pillars and infinity 6x9s.
- Spare wheel and original tool kit



Traveled 740 miles for it , got it home , Replaced the bat, ( tryed starting it when we picked it up but it was dead so had to jump start it with leads ) With the new bat on it started first turn of the key ,
also gave the Rear arches/ boot floor a Good coat of wax oil , to help it stop rusting , as its Sold as 100% rust free ,,, just found a little bit on the back arch , so addressed that asap :)

also the front brakes seem a bit poor . so started giveing them a good clean :) just need to get another tyre to put on my alloys then its mot time :)

Nice looking car ! Only thing I'm not sure about is the leather interior which I don't like in any car so don't worry its not just yours !

A 740 mile round trip still qualifies you as a Cinquecento :wink:

Not jealous, honest Pete and I do know how much you favour leather :wink:

I'm glad you're pleased with the car James and I'll certainly look forward to seeing the car, Stanford Hall perhaps?
