All Red and Leathery Smelling - a "pur sang" Italian Sport Machine
You are minding your own business driving down the freeway in Los Angeles when suddenly you find yourself pursued by Porsche pushers! Now Porsche drivers are a very exclusive clan and they are not given to glancing, let alone staring at any other type of vehicle. What causes all this attention from the sophisticates is that you are driving the very slinky new Abarth Scorpion SS 1300. The name, as is common with Italian machines, is nearly as long as the car. 'Car' is really an inadequate term for describing one of Carlo Abarth's creations; these dandy sporting vehicles are definitely machines made for driving pleasure and little else.
