An Italian flavour to our 'new cars' posts in the early part of this week
The Fiat 500 was launched earlier this year and evokes memories of the old classic Fiat 500. Abarth is the tuning arm of Fiat. The Abarth is powered by a 1.4 Litre 16v Turbo engine giving out 135 bhp. As a small city car, thats pretty quick.
As with any car today, its bigger than its predecssor. This image from the ' Fiat 500 UK Club' forum shows, just how much bigger it is!
Fiat have hinted that the 500 may launch in North America at a later date. They have one order waiting here!
Mike featured this race version on Speedhunters (link) last month.
