Abarth Biposto

THE first car offered for sale by a major manufacturer with a race-style dog-ring transmission, the 140kW Abarth Biposto, will retail here at $60,000 in base spec. Only 15 examples have been imported to Australia, all in matte titanium grey, complete with fully adjustable suspension, four-point racing harnesses and optional data logger. Abarth claims the 997kg Polish-built two-seater ďadds a drop of madnessĒ.

Given that itís possible to pay $108,000 for one if you tick a few too many options boxes, that description isnít too far off the mark.
