Got £422,000? This Fenice Milano Abarth 500C could be yours

The Fiat 500 is taking on the MINI in the battle for the 'King of Retro Hatches' title. Both have special edition and both are great to drive, but the MINI doesn't have anything to beat this – the £422,000 Fiat Abarth 500C by Fenice Milano called "La Dolce Vita Gold and Diamonds 200hp". You'll see why they called it that in a moment...

You did read the price, correctly, by the way. Spending that amount is justified by giving it a white pearl paint job, 24 carat gold flourishes, the odd sprinkling of diamonds, a gold plated iPad on the dash, teak flooring, alcantara seats and a black roof.

While it looks very, erm, bright, it does have power to match the look. There's a 200bhp engine coupled with a custom exhaust, Brembo stoppers and sports suspension. Click below for the video.
