On the weekend of 7-8 of February, Autoworld is hosting a double launch event to showcase the arrival of two much anticipated small cars - the 500 Abarth from Fiat and the Mi.To from Alfa Romeo
[UKPRwire, Fri Feb 06 2009] To add to the excitement of these two sporty pocket rockets, a ‘Power Lap’ competition will be the main event. Those participating will get the opportunity to show off their driving skills and the fastest lap driver will be rewarded with a games console for their efforts. There will also be a raffle and the opportunity to win an Alfa Romeo for a weekend.
With rave reviews from BBC Top Gear’s Jeremy Clarkson and building on the success of Fiat’s most iconic city car, the Fiat 500, there’s no doubt that the Abarth 500 will be top of the wish list of many followers of Italian style and design. This weekend is the region’s opportunity to get to the front of the queue for the much-anticipated Abarth 500, boasting impressive specifications:
a 1.4 16 v turbo charged engine offering 135 bhp and accelerating from 0-60 in just 7.9 seconds (speed limits and traffic conditions permitting).
North Derbyshire family-owned motor group Autoworld are privileged to be announced as exclusive dealers of the ‘Abarth’ range as Fiat Group Automobiles re-launches the brand into the United Kingdom. Autoworld of Chesterfield is one of just 12 appointed dealers in the United Kingdom and Ireland.
Full details of the events and cars can be found online at www.autoworld-uk.com and www.alfaromeo-uk.com. Demonstration vehicles are available during the launch weekend but it is advised that test drives are booked in advance to avoid disappointment.
