Description

*Free airport pickup* *Non Smoking* *Manual Transmisson* First time Turo users can get $25 off with this code https://turo.com/c/geraldm159 Can text me at 704-207-5483 for any questions before rental. (Starting in May 2019 guided trips to great local driving roads, Tail of the Dragon, Dimondback, will be available starting at $150, includes unlimited miles, radar, go pro photo ops, driver training if wanted, amazing local sights and curated restaurant stops, must text me before hand to coordinate dates at least a week or two in advance. Don’t worry, I won’t be riding with you, but you will have to try and keep up 🙃) What if you crossed a Ferrari with a Original Volkswagen GTi? You get this car, the Abarth 500. This car is a love letter to a time that’s long extinct, a letter to the days of light weight, manual transmission, overpowered cars that put your life in your own hands, not some fancy computer. Cars like this are going extinct, and this is one of the last of a dying breed. Sporting a tuned 1.4L Alpha Romeo engine that’s been cranked up to 11. Putting all of its estimated 200hp down through a short shifter, this car will accelerate from 0-60 faster then anything normal you will encounter on Charlotte roads. This isn’t a Fiat, this is a ABARTH. A company with 70 years of Italian racing heritage. The snap-crackle-pop of the exhaust scares women and children under throttle but is mild and relaxing at crusing speeds. This car has proven itself everywhere from the track to the Tail of the Dragon, and will make your trip to Charlotte one to remember. Note. Car runs on PREMIUM FUEL. If you plan to drive the car HARD please purchase the unlimited miles, it goes to the maintenance of such a high strung Italian car. *Also* while I’m open to last minute bookings, it may come at the cost of not being able to arrange a shuttle to the location/car not being perfectly clean/exc. please be understanding. I try to accommodate everyone, but at the end of the day I am one person 🙃
