Fiat 500 Abarth (2012)

Faithful to the “small but wicked” saying coined for Karl Abarth’s vehicles in the 1960s, the new 2012 Fiat 500 Abarth arrives to America with the racing traditions which have made it a achievement on European roadways and racetracks — world-class efficiency and precision, purposeful and aggressive styling, high power-to-weight ratio and limited-production volume.

“Bringing the 2012 Fiat 500 Abarth to the U.S. allows us to reach out to driving enthusiasts who want Italian overall performance at an attainable value,” stated Olivier Francois, Head of FIAT Brand and Chief Marketing Officer — Chrysler Group LLC. “With its lightweight, track-tuned handling and purpose-built style, the Fiat 500 Abarth brings to life the legendary racing heritage of the brand and becomes the Italian high-performance automobile for daily driving.”

Building on the excitement of the new 2012 Fiat 500 (Cinquecento), the new Fiat 500 Abarth is designed for track-day enthusiasts and driving purists who want the ultimate high-performance small vehicle with the pedigree of an exclusive Italian exotic.
