Retro Cars – Not For Graham Hill

Hi, Graham Hill here, thank you so much for visiting my blog, I hope you learn a lot and as a result end up driving a great car. In order to do so you can get all the information you need by buying my book, An Insider Guide To Car Finance or use me to finance your next car. Happy driving.
Fiat 500

I know I’m getting pretty old and I don’t see things as I did when I was younger and I do yearn for some of the things that we enjoyed when we were younger but I don’t crave for 60’s music, black and white TV’s or Ford Cortina’s. When BMW brought the Mini up to date I thought it was brilliant but I could never get my head around the retro Fiat 500. It just looked silly and old fashioned. I would have said why not get an old one out of the Exchange and Mart if you want to go all retro but most had been dispatched to the knackers yard years ago.

So whilst not making lots of friends as they have been popular cars I simply don’t get them! I get even less the Arbarth 500C Esseesse, the suped up version of the little Fiat 500.

When I say supped up that means a 1.4 turbo engine that kicks out 158bhp and ‘sprints’ you from 0-60 in 7.6 seconds (wow). So if you want a Fiat 500 with chunky white wheels, a drop head and red seats this is the car for you.

And at a smidge over £20,000 I’d rather a more modern looking Corsa or what about a British built Juke? Oh that was my review of the week in case you were wondering. By Graham Hill
