Actually he normally quite likes small cars. He's always been an MX5 fan and also stuff like the 86/BRZ, Renault Clio, Focus RS and Fiesta ST.Jeremy tested the Lusso, and the euro-spec Lusso is definitely a bit... soft. Jeremy doesn't like slow cars which must be driven smartly to extract speed; he likes his cars like Tobias Moers from Mercedes AMG -- loud, and sideways.
That bit felt a bit forced. The desire to buy one immediately was the kind of hyperbole Clarkson is known for.And then he went to an Alfa dealer to buy one and couldn't decide between it and a 4C.
Where is it numbered? I'm eager to check my Abarth!I've recently taken delivery of the Abarth version (in the same colours as the clip). I read that Ckarkson wasn't taken with the Lusso but he also quoted that Richard Hammond said the Abarth was very different. My early impressions of mine are that it is FAB! Very good handling and love the exhaust sound. It's number 303 (the first 2500 are numbered I think).
