Hot hatches, eh? Don’t you just love ‘em? Look at the pugnacious pair on these pages, the affable Abarth and the cheeky Corsa: cheery, affordable bundles of fun, serving up cheery, affordable thrills. Who needs a posh German coupe when you could pick up not one, but both these cars for a mere… £60,000?
Ah. Yes. Sixty grand. Before options. These apparently cheery, affordable bundles of fun are, in fact, a £22,790 Vauxhall Corsa VXR Nürburgring Edition and the (brace yourself) £37,500 Abarth 695 Tributo Ferrari.
