With the awesome production of Golf it was held as the best hatchback of the year! I think the standard production is better than this tuned up version although there’s a boost in its engine performance.

The combination of gray-red theme look so odd! I refer the standard look of the Golf. Well, its nice that this tuning company have boost the engine performance of the car.

Awww, what happened to its tire marks? I haven’t seen its interiors but I am disappointed with its exteriors. A huge disaster made by volks.

Too bad about the roll bar, that’s part of what distinguished the Cabrio for all those years.

This is exciting! I can’t wait to see the sportswheel!

Does anyone out there know if they will bring all the Abarth variations to the US when they start selling the 500 here? (next year?)

Surely those silly wheels are too big to be any kind of performance upgrade? The 330PS is of course. I wonder how much power you’d need to do really small-radius AWD donuts in that car?
