I saw a BBC news report online this month about the most powerful street car ever to be built – and its Italian.
However, it’s not the fact that the Pininfarina Battista is the most powerful hypercar ever built that’s raising eyebrows. Nor is it the hefty £2m price tag. What’s really causing a stir is that it is all electric.
The new car registration figures released this month show that Abarth recorded their best ever UK sales results in 2018.
The figures showed a 26.8% year-on-year sales increase with 5,628 cars registered in 2018 compared with 4,441 in 2017. Abarth UK also hit the highest sales figures for the brand across Europe for the second year running, proving continued interest in the Abarth 595 and 124 ranges brings new customers to the brand.
