Fiat may be planning Abarth-only models
In a conversation with Director of FIAT, Luca De Meo, it came out that besides making Abarth a separate division, they would also get exclusive models, maybe even something along the lines of the Abarth roadster seen here. It could easily be built off of the 500 Abarth platform and give the brand a halo car of sorts to visually represent what the marque is all about. The Abarth SS Concept seen here was designed by IED, and although just a styling exercise, could realistically reach the market as a production vehicle. Rumors of 185-hp versions of the T-Jet have swirled, but even the 145-155 hp mills would make this tiny barchetta fly. Just one more reason to move to Italy.
