I think I would have gone for a Smart with the 'busa mod.

I'm not sure about the green wheels and mirrors, but I'd seriously consider one if I lived in a city. Let us know what mods can do for it. Reminds me a lot of my CRX si.

I go to Italy a lot and when I'm there I ALWAYS rent a Fiat 500. They are so fun to drive and have lots of power. Most of the dumbells here making stupid comments have never driven one so who cares what they think? Really...

I saw the Scuderia 'Trubuto Ferrari' model when in Monaco a year or two ago (parked in front of the casino no less, adjacent to a 458, surely somebody's idea of a funny photo op). It looked pretty cool, but not sure I'd spend the cake on one given the price point; I'd rather have a base mini cooper and a ducati for the same price. That said, if you like kitsch, this is the one for you!

I like the black on red, but can't get behind the matchbox/hotwheels green wheels.

My girlfriend looked at a normal 500 convertible, and it was honestly the most terrifying thing I've ever driven. You couldn't see anything, the car was almost dangerously slow and unresponsive, and it had some scary vibration whenever you got around 45 mph. The manual trans was nothing to write home about either. I'm curious how much better the Abarth models are, but we couldn't give that normal 500 back quick enough.
