proof that great scrappage buys don't have to be dull. If you're thinking about a 500 and have a 10-year-old motor, you really are laughing.

That's because you'd be lucky to get a penny off a new 500 without the scrappage scheme they're selling like hot cakes with no discount.

Buy a 500 and it'll hold its value better than any other car here. As well as dirt-cheap running costs, the baby Fiat will also help keep your conscience clear, courtesy of its low emissions.

Key equipment
CD player (six speakers), curtain airbags, driver/passenger, side and driver knee airbags, electric front windows and mirrors, remote central locking, tilt-adjustable steering wheel.
