Abarth Officially Announced

With the launch of the Fiat 500 fully underway, we’ve had months of silence from Fiat about the Abarth. Finally though, earlier this week, Fiat announced via Twitter:

The #FIAT 500 Abarth will be available in 2012 and there is currently no waiting list, though there are many excited fans waiting

Today, Head of Fiat Brand for North America, Laura Soave gave her “state of the union” address to Fiat fans at the Fiat FreakOut, during which she officially announced that the Abarth will be revealed at the LA Auto Show, which takes place in November. Exciting news indeed!
