Ferrari F1 Drivers Alonso and Massa get their own Abarth 695 Tributo

http://carscoop.blogspot.com/2010/09/ferrari-f1-drivers-alonso-and-massa-get.html

This time, Alonso and Massa were handed over the keys of two Fiat 500-based Abarth 695 Tributo Ferrari special edition models finished in Scuderia red with Racing grey details.

The limited special series Abarth model is powered a 1.4-liter force-fed four-cylinder engine tuned to develop 180HP, and comes with a bevy of goodies including carbon fibre parts, body hugging bucket seats from Sabelt, four-pot Brembo discs and unique 17-inch Corsa Grey alloy wheels.

The Abarth version of the Fiat 500 looks really fantastic.  I saw the Abarth EssEsse while in Europe, which is a very sporty version of the 500;  the 695 takes that up several notches, in looks, trim, handling, power, and performance. It should be quite a fun car to drive.  I wonder if Felipe and Fernando will actually keep the cars?  Doubtful, as they are likely suited for us mere mortals rather than an F1 driver.  Mere mortals with a big wallet, that is, as the price is huge for this little car!

Auto detailing done right is tedious and challenging work. This is a fine example of how a master completes a job. Certainly a few tips can be gleaned from how a sixty (!) hour job was required to clean up this stunning Ferrari F40. Personally I use products from GriotsGarage.com but there are certainly other great quality suppliers out there. The key is in how the products are used. Learn the process and the products are really secondary. Man does that red look fantastic…
