The Fiat 500 launches in Europe in about a month. When would you like it to come to America? If you said sometime after 2010 and you secretly hoped it wear an Alfa Romeo badge, you might be in luck.

An American version of the 135hp Abarth 500 might be a reality, according to anonymous sources quoted by Automotive News Europe (subs req'd). The car would be sold in small numbers by Alfa Romeo dealers, to compete with the Mini Cooper. Converting the Abarth 500's price to USD makes it about $20,200, ANE says. If it came to the U.S., would you buy one? You've got at least three years to decide.
