In the late 1950s Karl Abarth believed that race cars with brilliant performance could be derived from small, lightweight, everyday driving cars — including the original Cinquecento (500). And his tradition of track-ready small cars continues today by utilizing the 2012 Fiat 500 Sport as a base point for the new high-performance Fiat 500 Abarth.
Faithful to the “small but wicked” saying coined for Karl Abarth’s cars in the 1960s, the new 2012 Fiat 500 Abarth arrives to America with the racing traditions that have made it a success on European roadways and racetracks — world-class performance and precision, purposeful and aggressive styling, high power-to-weight ratio and limited-production volume.
Release of this new 2012 Fiat 500 Abarth brought the USA a piece of Italian legend, with things appearing around this Abarth that scream with Italian colors and logos as well. Glide around Florida beaches like never before in one of Arrigo's vast inventory of new Fiat 500s in various trims, models, and special editions, including Fiat 500 Pink Ribbon, Fiat 500 Convertible C, and Fiat 500 Gucci model. Fiat 500 is proving to be the most popular small compact car on the road today, whether it's a new Fiat 500 or an immaculate used Fiat 500. Either way, Fiat 500 is ranking #1 for those in search of an economical and all-around fun car as Fiat 500 Abarth. Check out the small yet big shot attitude in Fiat’s 1.4 4-cylinder engine, its own ESC (Electronic Stability Control) system, new MacPherson suspension gives way to stiffer redefined springs that assist in reducing body roll and enhance overall driving performance, TTC (Torque Transfer Control)take charge when handling unexpected turns, focused throttle response time and rapid shift timing. Powerful things do happen in the small Fiat 500, as hitting that 0-60 marker in about 7-seconds, which is not bad for an engine this small as 1.4-liter. Safety remains a key factor for Fiat 500 designers, as 2012 Abarth is equipped with over 35 safety features that have been incorporated.
Inside this sporty newly released Fiat 2012 Abarth, the interior greets drivers with choices of Black fine leather or cloth in Red, White, or Black. The pillars and headliners were done with a Black finish. Optional TomTom navigation is available upon request and comes with a 4.3-inch touch-screen. Several enhanced features make Fiat a finely chosen monetary investment, especially when low pricing is offered by FL Arrigo new Fiat 500 Abarth dealer.
"Bringing the 2012 Fiat 500 Abarth to the U.S. enables us to reach out to driving enthusiasts who want Italian performance at an attainable price".
-Olivier Francois, Head of Fiat Brand
