Great review by evo and to think that over the years they have been quite harsh on the MX5 comparisons.

"It’s not an especially quick car by modern standards – 0-62mph in 6.8sec is the claim – but rarely has a car illustrated a contempt for mere numbers so clearly. Because its 168bhp is so accessible, it’s easy to use all of the Spider’s performance so much more of the time. When I took the Abarth home on a warm summer’s night I arrived at my destination in what felt like a cloud of brake dust, sweat and dead flies – and with a dazed smile on my face. The speeds hadn’t been antisocial, but I’d had more fun on that journey than I can remember in just about anything else."

Sums up the car perfectly.
