Stand down Mini Cooper chauvinists, your Fiat 500 bashing days are numbered….
Make fun of the J Lo ad spots if you want, even though there’s no arguing that the Mini has been a total chick car as well from the get-go. However, as of now the Fiat’s "manhood" can no longer be questioned. Not after the "small-but-wicked" Fiat 500 Abarth is announced at the Los Angeles Auto Show.
So read it and weep:
Namely the Mini Cooper S and new VW Beetle Turbo.
And with hundreds of less pounds to push around and a kickass new suspension, brakes and body cladding, the Abarth is poised to not only kick Brit butt, but make a powerful design and testosterone statement when it hits Fiat Studios sometime next year.
owing to a painfully slow new dealer rollout, local Fiat sales have soared and the cars are starting to show up in increasing numbers in driveways and on the road.
The truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth about the Abarth tips at 3:35 PM Kansas City time.
Never fear, watch it HERE.
