    They are owned by FIAT remember...

    Weren't there a few Alfa Romeos (also FIAT) a few years back that had a tendancy to spontaneously combust???

    And the batch of Fiat Mirafioris in the early 1980s where the engine bolts sheared and the engines literally fell out of the cars - my Gov't & Politics teacher had that happen to him on a motorway!

    FIAT = Fix It Again Tomorrow

    Though it looks like a couple of those 458's will need more than a quick T-Cut...

    eeek,

    My dad used to have one of those.

    But then looking at it sensibly, you could have a Ferrari 458 or a Porsche 911. Now ok the porsche is half the price and doesn't combust.


    Buttttt....



    You'd need to be an accountant to say no.

    I'm picturing one of the shiney wheels, a pile of ash ....... Hmmmm. I'll stick with my old Rover, peeling paint the lot. I want to be cremated but not yet.

    From the way these things catch fire, it seems anyone in a Ferrari is quite likely to be seen dead in one!
