It's the Record Monza Euro spec, and I wouldn't want him loading my brand new car onto a transporter for sure.Bet the clutch smelt a bit after that lot

Record Monza sounds freaking awesome. Since we can't get that in the States, what exhaust comes close ?

I'm being patient. I'll have it shipped from overseas if I have to, once I find a vendor.

Abarth 124 Scorpione ?

To be fair, my euro spec 124 needs a bit of clutch slipping when doing slow manoeuvres, especially on a gradient. Theres a bit of lag, low down in the rev range.

Interestingly it looks like he has the headlights switched to "on" rather than "auto" daylight running lights.

Record Monza "The grass is always greener!"
In the UK all Abarth 124's come with the Record Monza. One of the reasons I didn't want an Abarth is the Record Monza. It has a terrible reputation on the 500s for the valve ( which creates the sound that some of you like and I think is ****) sticking - either open or shut. Those that have them on 500's eventually change them for an aftermarket solution. But that's in the UK - other countries may be different. It is a poorly engineered solution for a crazy price. There are much better solutions and more to come for less money.
