Well MINI is their main competition so respectfully what do you expect?
John Atnip Nov 28, 2012
So, they've started competing with every model of MINI? Still not interested.

I agree with Patrick. And when the sun's out, you can just slide the roof back.
Patrick Schalk Nov 28, 2012
Shoot I'd DD an Abarth! I think they look awesome and I bet they are tons of fun to drive.

The fiat is just a quick little drivers feel type car and these little engines have potentinal change a few things boost the turbo up abit and you could get 250+ out of this little car and i personally think the abarth is sick way better thena35kmini

Yea there really not fast, don't know why u think so, I had a guy try and race me in my 25 yea old truck and he could barely get away

@Brandon. I'm a woman and this is way too girly for me even. Not at all a fan. P.S. it really isn't a fast car.

Not only do these Abarths sound really good ( you can hear turbo spool in exhaust ), if they handle anything like a Mini they'll be good at the track too.

It is still a convertible and still has all the extra strengthening in the rest of the body in case you crash it

Yeah I know Brandon I just had a typo when I wrote it that made my comment sound opposite of what I mean haha but I don't think with this sliding roof it gains nearly as much weight as a typical folding top, if any
William Downs Nov 28, 2012
1st off as a man why would u want this little chick car, second of all why would u even want a convert able version of a chick car, I don't give a flying shit if its an abarth or not still a girls car
JB Kolod Nov 28, 2012
@steven don't think so this is any heavier and it's not like the loss in rigidity is going to be a factor, it's a 500 not a supercar. Anyways if I got a fiat it would be this one, although this is probably pricier than I would want to pay for a 500

I'd rather have the coupe.
Description: Unveiled for the first time in US specification at the LA Auto Show this week, the Fiat 500C Abarth combines the most desirable elements from the other models into one very tempting little package. Un...

Same engine in the dodge dart
Description: That would be the folding canvas roof panel from the 500C, which retains the solid pillars and roof rails to keep the body rigid and the open-top driving experience as simple as possible. You can open...

William Downs Nov 28, 2012
