  • Summary

    4 out of 5 4.0

    What does this car say about you?

    It says I'm concerned about the environment, but I'm not, it says I'm a hairdresser, but I'm not, it says I bought the car to please the wife, cause she's always wanted one. So I put up with it. However I could really do with more Power, I'm considering the Arbarth 180 BHP as the trade in in September, once the PCP ends.

    What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?

    They all love it, they say they'll get one.

    Would you buy this car again and why?

    No it's not powerful or fast enough, I'll get the Arbarth 695 competizione 180 BHP NET. MAINLY CAUSE I LOVE THE CAR BUT NEED MORE SPEED.

    What are you likely to buy next?

    Arbarth 695 competizione 180 BHP.
