Fiat 500 Abarth

The Fiat 500 Abarth is a fun little hot-rod of a hatchback. It’s small, relatively light, and with decent power and a great exhaust note, is actually a hoot to drive on tight twisty roads. The one you see here was built by Road Race Sports’ Robert Tallini and is pumped-up with a bigger turbo, a roll-caged and a bunch of other high-octane Abarth mods. Jay Leno recently took the helm and while impressed, I’m not sure he thinks it’s that much better than his own stock Abarth. Click through for the video and then you be the judge.

Fiat 500L

For those of you out there who want to play grab-ass with your girlfriends Mom, well then, Fiat’s got the car for you! I mean hell, what middle-aged Cougar wouldn’t go crazy for a car with Italian styling, nicely appointed seats and an interior that’s so roomy that it literally lets her kiss you on the face without anyone knowing. Sadly though there’s no dirty talk, which I suppose is appropriate since Fiat’s are mostly visual little buggers anyway. Check it out after the jump.

Back Seat Italians

I’m not going to lie, growing up Italian is probably the best thing that could ever happen. You’ve got family, food, attitude and style all rolled into one wonderful nationality. If you’ve been paying attention to the new ads that Fiat has been creating, then you know that the “Fix It Again Tony” company is using this to the best of their advantage. In their newest ad for the 500L, Fiat decided to give us all a little idea of why Italians truly do have so much fun. Check it out after the jump.

Petrolicious

I’ll be honest. I’ve never heard of, or seen a Fiat 2300S Coupe until I clicked on this video. This is one of those rare cars that exemplifies the spirit of being Italian. It’s got style, class and a sound that puts most other cars to shame. Owner Pierantonio Micciarelli of Milan, Italy sees his little 2300S as his own personal egg and loves the fact that, when driven, takes him far away from the technological world we live in today.

Fiat 500D

It’s been said that the greatest things in life come in the smallest packages, and the Fiat 500 is the perfect example. It’s got zero cargo space, is slower than the fastest snail, and is about as reliable as well – a Fiat. However what this little bugger loses in performance, it more than makes up for in personality. You see this is a car that makes you smile. It makes the sun come out on a cloudy day while at the same time, bringing joy to all those who see it. The Fiat 500 is not just a car per say, but moreover, it’s a little bit of joy that rolls slowly on four wheels.

2012 Fiat 500 Abarth: Ridelust Review

2012 Fiat 500 Abarth

PRO’s: High style, great price, killer exhaust note.

CON’s: Twitchy handling, not a great interstate cruiser, useless rear seats.

FINAL THOUGHT: A great little city car that offers style, decent performance and economy for a fair price.

The 2012 Fiat 500 Abarth is one nifty little roller skate of a car. It looks the business, makes all the right noises and comes from the land of pasta and pizza. However as with all things Italian it’s not free of quirks. Even though the 500 is relatively new to the American market, it’s been around in Europe for over 5 years and in that time has developed a cult-like following. It’s compact, relatively fun to drive and pretty good to look at if you dig hipster fashion and overpriced coffee.

2012 Fiat 500 Abarth

Thumbs Up: One of the most entertaining front-wheel-drive cars on the market.

Thumbs Down: Unless you’re Tanner Foust’s size, you’ll look comical driving it.

Buy This Car If: You want the most fun for the least amount of money.

When Fiat returned to the United States with its Fiat 500 city car, initial reviews were mixed. Some found its European charm irresistible, while others found its diminutive size terrifying to drive in traffic. One thing that most who test-drove the Fiat 500 agreed on was this: although the handling was go-kart like, the car really needed an infusion of horsepower to deliver entertainment value to driving enthusiasts.
