caferacermike This was a replacement to a 2013 Lounge that was borrowed and wrecked. I knew eventually I had to replace it with another 500C, and especially an Abarth.

I can't tell you why, but I love these little cars. I test drove a couple of Cooper S models, a few of the coupes as well. They were fun but there is something charming about the Fiat that keeps getting my money.

I'm glad you like yours as well. It's funny how I averaged around 34mpg in the Lounge but I can't keep my foot out of the boost and average 17mpg in the Abarth. Basically the same mileage as my lifted 2003 Ford Ranger. The Fiat was supposed to get me better mileage for when I go on my 4 hour trips to the coast. You have any pictures of yours?

ti22fjc Had to reply!! I own a 2014 and a 2015.
The 14 is a GQ edition, which is an abarth, and a few cosmetic changes in badging and trim. The 2015 is an auto. Both are a blast to drive. Stock exhaust and tone is amazing.

caferacermike Some pictures from the seller when I bought it.


I've been wanting one of these for about 6 years now. I have zero regrets.

Because it looks like a miniature death trap?
The Fix it again Tony reputation?

Pics, and tell us why I am wrong.

FIAT Abarth, why did I wait so long?

Finally broke down and bought an Abarth. So much fun. I've already burned 2 tanks of gas, which with a heavy foot appears to be about 500 miles, in 6 days. It isn't my daily either! Can't wait to get home from work to go out and run it around the lake to get dinner.

Any other Abarth owners? Looking to start tuning. I said I wasn't going to tune it. Yeaaaaah ok, now that's already behind me I'll be looking forward to what others might have done.
