2012 Fiat 500 Abarth on TV

Fiat 500 Abarth on racetrack

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. For a complete listing of the public television stations that broadcast MotorWeek, go to motorweek.org and click the “Find Your Station” tab at the top. MotorWeek is also seen Tuesday evenings on Velocity cable channel. Don't miss it!*


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