Styling, handling, value
Left-hand drive, little storage space, horrendous insurance
The Barchetta should be a runaway Fiat success story in the UK. It's undeniably beautiful, has Italian brio in its drive and is available new for under £12,000. But there's one big reason why buyers haven't abandoned the MX-5 and MGTF in droves - it's only available in left-hand-drive. And that's its only major problem; reliability issues seem to be sorted and it's quite well equipped, but most buyers won't even try the Barchetta because the steering wheel is on the wrong side.
They should. It's rather good.
