The Fiat 500 Abarth. More than just a cool emblem on a fast car, the 500 Abarth is a descendant of legendary performance cars and championship racers. Now, you can drive your 500 Abarth to the grocery store and that will be fun, but you'll miss out on the considerable capabilities of this car. To keep this from happening, Fiat includes "The Abarth Experience", a full day of high performance driving instruction with every purchase of a new Fiat 500 Abarth.
The 2015 Abarth Experience calendar has been posted. During the Abarth Experience, owners learn from professional racing instructors how to exploit all the performance of the Fiat 500 Abarth, in a safe and controlled race track environment.
Update: This year there will be both manual and automatic transmission equipped cars available at the Abarth Experience!
The Abarth Experience Itinerary:
•Abarth Autocross — Horsepower. Handling. Brakes. Speed.
•Abarth Head-to-Head Challenge — Two Drivers. One Track. Who Will Triumph?
•Abarth Driving Dynamics — Learn Precision Skills from a Seasoned Professional.
•Abarth Performance Drive — Show Us What You've Got
