Abarth 695C Ri­vale

Top Gear (UK) - - DRIVES | AWARS 2018 - OM

What should I know?

Where to start? That the scut­tle shake is hor­ren­dous, the ride is abysmal and the price bor­der­line ab­surd for what is noth­ing more than a gussied-up hot hatch full of Riva speed­boat brand­ing.

Should I care?

For all the rea­sons listed above, no. This £25,040 con­vert­ible felt old eight years ago. This is the same car, just filled with gloss to draw your at­ten­tion away from the un­der­de­vel­oped un­der­pin­nings. It’s only lov­able un­til you have to drive it. You’ve been warned.
