2000 Fiat Barchetta
Reviewed 30 Jan 2008

Mechanically very reliable (Punto / Alfa 155 running gear) no issues and easy to home service. Nippy rather than quick. 130hp in a 1000kg body + 0-100kph in 9 secs won't set records, more power would be nice. Front wheel drive...exception in this market but still a very taught handler. Strictly for 2 and with a small boot. Not child friendly. Comes with ABS + twin airbags. Wouln't want to have a major smash in it (or any ragtop!)due to lack of side impact protection above door level. Nicely styled, mine has leather, aircon (Italian model..UK spec only got cloth seats and no chill). Exclusivity over common-as-mud MX5!

LHD only which is a problem to most UK drivers but no issue at all in reality in a small car. Mechanically very reliable (Punto / Alfa 155 running gear) no issues and easy to home service. Nippy rather than quick. 130hp in a 1000kg body + 0-100kph in 9 secs won't set records, more power would be nice. Front wheel drive...exception in this market but still a very taut handler.
