Crazy!

Now, before I rant, I am a huge Ferrari fan and would defend till death, but this is just BS.

Basically, the guts of the story is that the Australia\NZ imports of Fiats are going to be selling the Fiat Abarth 695 Tributo Ferrari thru the Ferrari Dealers, so CCS in Auckland here in NZ, and I suppose the Ferrari dealers in Australia too.

It will be to order only

The Fiat 500 Abarth Esseesse has just gone on sale here, and I saw one the other day for sale at around NZD 48-50K in Wellington.

So, if the Tributo makes it too NZ, current exchange rates have it at NZD $108,000.00. Seems a bit steep for a 500.

Now, having a look through my archives, I got some pics of this thing, and on the outside I count 3 Ferrari logos and 1 inside.

So a rough $15000 per Ferrari logo.

Who in there right mind would pay that for a Fiat?

Just because a small Fiat has 4 badges with the Ferrari name on them, not the badge, that commands a 50K price hike over the standard 500 Abarth Esseesse
