MotorWeek, American television's oldest running automotive news magazine, has done a first impressions review on the 2012 Fiat 500 Abarth and it looks like they've been stung:
"...what impressed us most about the 2012 Fiat 500 Abarth is the $22,000 price tag. You don’t have to be on “The Price Is Right” to figure out that that’s a steal. We can’t think of another car packing this much performance for that low of a price."
"...Granted, embracing the Abarth tuned 500 will take a wholesale change in how an American enthusiast views performance cars. But, if you can make that jump, you’ll love every minute and every mile in the 2012 Fiat 500 Abarth."
A full Road Test of the Fiat 500 Abarth will air on episode #3136 which begins airing on May 10, 2012.

*conflicting info shows that the Fiat 500 Abarth road test may air on episode #3137 next week, so be prepared.
