So yes, it appears that Richard Hammond really does like the Abarth 124 Spider.
No surprises there then!
It’s on Amazon Prime Video, The Grand Tour Season 1, Episode 11 “Italian Lessons”
Oh. My. Word.
Here’s the official teaser video for the new Abarth 124 Spider:
So here we are at the end of March 2016. The RX-8 R3 has just had another annual service and is showing over 84,000 miles up and is still being driven like I stole it.
The trouble with it is that there’s no real replacement … just yet?
On the horizon we may, just may, have one in the shape of the Mazda RX-Vision.
How cool is that?
Sadly it’s only a two seater and not a 2+2 as the RX-8 is, but who knows? At this stage it’s a concept.
Or should we go for the Mazda MX-5 RF (Retractable Fastback)?
