  • When you start with something as pure and good as a Miata, it's difficult both to improve on it and to completely muck it up. Fiat hasn't made a better Miata, but it.

    It is interesting! The faces of the company Fiat are famous racers Michael Schumacher and Kimi Raikkonen.

    Loony Tunes Review for sure. The Abarth will wake your neighbors; the Spider Abarth doesn't announce your arrival at all. A two seat roadster would work splendidly. I prefer to receive internal offers and promotions. I recently spent more than a week and 1, miles in a Spider, and had some thoughts on this snarly little Italian-Japanese mini- kaiju.

    Fiat Spider Abarth Review – A Tale of Two Drivers

    I find this somewhat limiting. I understand the reasons, but occasionally some input from others can help evaluate the car. So Young Chris decided not to wait until middle age, and he bought a sports car.

    Those patches of gray in your beard seem to perfectly match the Grigio Argento paint on the Spider Abarth, old man. Most guys go for bright red on their last grasp at their youth. You bought an old Miata at Indeed, I got plenty of seemingly-knowing looks from other, ahem, mature gentlemen during the week behind the wheel of the Fiat.

    An older neighbor walked across the street and chatted about the Spider he restored decades ago. A young neighbor similarly wandered by and drooled over the droptop. The daughters each rode with me for a long early morning cruise on the twisty backroads of eastern Ohio.

    Otherwise, no attention from the fairer sex was paid to either myself or the Fiat. You talk about the drive as if it was torture. I loved rowing through the gears when carving corners in the Hocking Hills. I found that the Fiat Spider Abarth was well balanced at the limit, only transitioning to mild oversteer on corner exit.

    However, on the longish freeway drive to and from the excellent forest roads, the car does show its true nature as a sports car in the wrong way. A short wheelbase makes the typical awful Ohio freeway less than pleasant. I did note that the air conditioning struggled to keep the interior cool with the top up on very hot days. Speaking of which, you should add heating coils to those old chairs in your old Miata. I even researched putting carburetors on the Miata for a better sounding engine.

    The interior is small enough that a touchscreen on the dash would never be out of reach. Oh, and those cupholders are a joke. Neither locations are acceptable. Strangely, that infotainment system had a funky glitch during my drive. The car was running fine. After a few minutes of confusion, the system restarted as if the ignition had restarted.

    It only happened once, but it was disconcerting. When the stereo was silent, did you notice a buzzing noise in the car? I know I did. Yeah, anytime I was driving with the top down over 65 mph, there was a flapping noise stemming from the area immediately behind the passenger headrest. Mercifully, one thing not carried over from the original Fiat Spider is the propensity to rust. The turbo engine in the new Spider, much like the low-revving, long-stroke engines in those MGs and Triumphs, have plenty of low-end torque, but run out of breath at the top end.

    While the new Fiat has a redline of 6, rpm, I found that shifting around 5, was plenty. Getting power to the Racelogic Driftbox was a mystery at first, until I queried the internet. I had to feel around, poking fingers in dark places quiet, kid until I found the power port.

    Getting clean launches is difficult and not advised on public roads. If I had the money, hell yeah. Mostly because I have college loans to pay. The serious lack of interior storage for person and stuff alike is a major turnoff. As a second car, absolutely. Especially as one approaches middle age, this is a superb weekend car.
