What to do while you wait for an Abarth

Alas, we are still at least 7 months away from the FIAT 500 Abarth debut in the United States. If you're anything like me, you're sitting at work right now tearing your hair out wondering what to do with all the time you'll be waiting to drive an Abarth.

On the one hand, people ask me every day if I drive a FIAT 500 and I want to say "yes, and it was the best decision of my life. I never thought twice about buying one, and I was just waiting for the right color and equipment combination to hit our lot." On the other hand, the FIAT 500 Abarth is likely going to be the most sought-after small car in America. I don't want to miss the unique opportunity to be one of the first guys who gets one.

So what do I suggest? Use your local FIAT Studio; get to know your FIAT Specialists and FIAT Studio Leads so when the Abarth reaches the lot, you're the first one they call. Take the FIAT 500 out for a test drive so you know all about the features of the car, and you have something to compare the Abarth to when you eventually get to test drive that. That way, when the Abarth arrives, you’ll know which is the right car for you.

Welcome To Abarth Ohio

Today we proudly debut the Abarth Ohio blog. The goal here is to provide Abarth enthusiasts a central hub from which everyone can access all the information you'll ever want or need about the FIAT 500 Abarth (as we'll tentatively call it).

For now, I'll leave you with a picture of my dream car, the FIAT 500C Abarth. As a bonus, you can also enjoy the Top Gear review of the 2009 FIAT 500 Abarth SS below.
