The simplicity of Bruce Meyers' original Manx made it easy to counterfeit. Today's Nice Price or Crack Pipe SR2 is his follow up, and a design that truly stands apart. But would you part with $8,900 for it?
When it comes to Abarths, the best ones have their motors in the back, seemingly exploding from the engine bay, and requiring propped-up engine covers for heat dissipation and showing off. That was the opinion advocated by the majority of commenters yesterday, and the rough and almost ready Ritmo - an Abarth that shared none of those attributes - fell victim to that derision, and its own funky monkey-ness, with a 74% Crack Pipe loss. Molto triste.
