Abarth’s Bombshell Wins vs. Fiat’s Jennifer Lopez in Ad Campaigns

Abarth is winning all day with their Romanian model and their new Abarth 500.

Fiat has been advertising their new 500 in the U.S. with Jennifer Lopez. There has been a bit of negative backlash on the Italian automaker, and their Romanian partners aren't taking any chances in their awesome ad for the 2012 Abarth 500.

And that is how you say winning in Italian. The beautiful and Abarth-scorpion-tattooed woman is Romanian model Catrinel Menghia, hence a bit of the forced accent. In any case, the 160hp 2012 Abarth 500 is a fierce hatchback and looks great towards the end of the video. The Abarth 500 was officially unveiled at the LA Auto Show. It is powered by a 1.4-liter MultiAir turbocharged four-cylinder engine. Now, we speak Italian just as well as Brad Pitt and his crew in "Inglourious Basterds," so here is our loose translation:

What are you looking at? Uh!? What are you looking at?! (slap) Are you undressing me with your eyes? Poor guy... you can't help it? Is your heart beating? Is your head spinning? Do you feel lost thinking that I could be yours forever?
