    Today, sad days for Bertone.

    After WWII, begining again, what a glorious genesis, the BAT Cars, were.

    Divine Inspiration, through the mind and imagination of MAN.

    Words alone, cannot define them. All the Senses, must be used.

    Guys, in the latest issue of Octane Magazine (March 2008, issue #57. In the News section; "Bertone in safe hands"), they reported that the company was purchased by Domenico Reviglio, founder of "Gruppo Prototipo" (an automotive testing company) and who is also the owner of the Nardo race track, back on January 1st.

    Any discussion there of the direction, etc. going forward?

    Nice garage by the way!

    (Although I'd ditch the Smart for a new 500 Abarth!)

    No, it did not mention what they plan to do for the future. Although they did mention that they would have to build a minimum of 30,000 cars each year to make a profit (whatever that means...).

    The new 500 is a cool little car, but so far, no new Fiats are sold in Canada so I have to make do with the Smart! Although, the Smart would be a hard car to give up, because it's the diesel version and fuel consumption (or lack thereof) is amazing!
