Abarth fighter?

Those front lights, or radar sensors or whatever confuse me. Are they just lights?

Those are front mounted airbags which deploy just before you hit something, but after your understeering FWD "toy" blows the corner.

If it gets to 60mph faster than 8 seconds it'll beat the 500 Abarth. I think my 23 year old Miata beats the 500 Abarth. Weighs less, corners better, and looks better too.

Can a FWD do donuts like in the second video?

do you really think about what you´re writing

you're just plain stupid, it´s rear wheel driven, and it has the engine in the back, like the Clio V6 or the Renault 5 Turbo.

So instead of a TwinGo, it's a TwinRun.

Makes sense.

Yes. I'm stupid. Because making a joke about some random, weird pieces of who the hell knows what on the bumper was apparently a bad choice.

As for the 500 Abarth...I was completely serious. They are slow, don't handle as fantastic as you'd expect, and I think they look terrible. Unfortunately my place of employment is one freeway exit North of Chrysler in Auburn Hills, MI and I have to see those ****ing things all the damn time. They don't grow on you. I think they look worse every time I see them. And, as expected, all the Chrysler engineers drive them like asshats and provide less reason to want to own one and associate with the next generation of stupid.

Hrm, Does anyone know what car is behind the Twin Run. my guess is an old style renault Rally car. It might point to the front squares being led fogs.

Anyways...

back to walking dead.

Play nice, the OP makes no mention of specs at all.

Like everything about it except for the silly square lights affixed to the bumper.

Entertaining video - but I'm a lot more interested in the wacky looking old car than the unfortunately shaped new one.

As a kid, I rode in one of these wacky Renault 5 Turbo 2. That's an unforgettable experience.
Unfortunately, people were wrapping them around trees faster than dealerships could bring them in . It wasn't the car's fault though; just inexperienced FWD car drivers.
