I was invited to do a test drive in a Fiat 500 Abarth recently by  friend who had just bought one. What a fantastic little car. Like a 'grown-up' Cooper 'S', and still a small car, by modern standards.

I owned one from new until I got rid of it for the R55 Clubman. Only reason was because I so rarely had a chance to drive it properly. Fun and capable car (if a little thirsty). Mine was only the 140hp version, I imagine the more powerful versions are better again.

Would love a 182 for a track car. They look like a riot.

I’ve just been reading about the Honda E. Now that looks like it could be fun; electric yes but it looks retro too.

Looks like somebody exploded a 1/4lb of TNT inside a Talbot Horizon from some angles.
