Abarth is to Fiat as AMG is to Mercedes, as the M models are to BMW, as the GTI is to the VW Golf. They take a cute little car, throw on better brakes, better suspension, bigger rims, a stylish paint job, and gobs of horsepower. They take a car that I’m mildly interested in and turn it into a must-have piece of machinery. Without the Abarth version of the Fiat 500, I wouldn’t have made this website.
If you’re interested in sports cars, if you enjoy performance, you know why the Abarth is better and why you wouldn’t want to settle for any other version. It turns a streetcar into a little dragster and I can’t wait to tear up traffic when I get one!
