Knowing that the factory-fettled 500 Abarth is headed our way in two year's time, we snagged the keys to see if Italy's hottest hatch was ready to bring the pain to the John Cooper Works models from Mini.
Nothing major to report here, but it seems this future GLK will be wearing updated headlights along with re-shaped front and rear bumpers. We may also get a direct injected 3.5-liter V6.
9.4 liters. 2,000-horsepower and 2,000 pound-feet of torque. Production? We'll see.
