Whether you call it the “Ah-barTH” or “Ah-barT” you’re right; the Italians would have us say the latter, but we care less about how you say it and more about how you drive it! The FIAT 500 Abarth is what happens when you tell performance enthusiasts to take a small, capable package and make it more capable.
With the same 1.4L Multiair engine found in the non-Abarths, but also found with a Honeywell turbocharger on it, this Abarth produces 160hp and 170lb.ft. of torque that screams out the open exhaust.
The Abarth’s sport bucket seats have been designed specifically with racing in mind, including the center pass-through for racing seat belts if you ever decide to get them.
Each Abarth not only has plenty of the features you’re accustomed to in the Sport model, like standard fog lights, FIAT Alpine audio system, and 7” TFT display, but it also includes a few more goodies like the heavy-duty transmissions; either a 5-speed manual or all-new for 2015 6-speed automatic.
Every new Abarth comes with the Abarth Experience, a one day track-focused driving school that takes place a few weekends per year across the country.
Give us a call or email us so we can set up a time for you to visit us and learn even more about this small but wicked monster.
