Leave it to the Italians to design the facilitator of all your future The Talented Mr
Ripley-esque summer montages. Slip back into this gorgeously shaped roadster, pop it into gear, hit the open road and feel your serotonin levels surge with a “prrrap” (for a bit more coin you can up the exhaust note to a roar). With a legendary sports heritage, a cool price tag and iconic Brembo brakes, this drop-top, turbo-charged two-seater drives like a drug. Be warned: you will find yourself doing reflective-surface drive-bys and garnering knowing nods from the Fiat car clique and fellow scorpion bonnetstamped fam. It’s a thing.
Shifts, speeds and turns THE WINNING EDGE: heads like a sleek vintage racer, minus the grease and roadside assist on speed dial.
