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.
I was pleased to hear that an Abarth 124 Spider is starring in a new music video also featuring Sting and Shaggy.
The official YouTube video amassed over 23 million views within a few days of its release promoting the single ‘Gotta Get Back My Baby’ from their album 44/876 which has already spent 17 weeks at the top of the Billboard Reggae chart.
This month I am providing you with a more general blog than usual, specifically aimed at helping you prepare your vehicle for the winter weather that is bound to hit the UK eventually.
Try these tips:
• Look after your windscreen. Obviously you need to keep it clean so make sure the windscreen washer is topped up.
I am pleased to see that this month sees the release of the new Fiat 500 Collezione.
As you might expect, first impressions are very good with a sophisticated and stylish blend of colours and shapes combining to ooze elegance. Available as both a hatchback and convertible, the great Fiat tradition is reflected by the inclusion of the classic Collezione badge in the tailgate.
