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.
