    ^^^ :lmao:


    ive only seen one on the road so far... pretty cool little car

    might have to go drive one

    would really like them to take off here, not because im really interested in them specifically... more that if it takes off i think we will start seeing some more of the foreign market compacts coming over here

    i heard there are plans to bring the Abarth and possibly the Abarth SS versions over.... those are pretty sick

    I didn't even know it was here yet. :shrug:

    Haven't seen any yet but now I'll be watching for them.

    Their website says they're only 2400 pounds... Quite light for a modern car.

    But someone hit a wrong button on their calculator:

    :confused:

    I saw one at limerock last weekend in the parking lot.

    i've never really been a fan of the 'tiny hatch' movement, so it does really nothing for me... it's a modern geo metro IMO

    I would rock an Abarth SS if I weren't trying to get away from small cars.

    Like the styling, don't like the fact that US 500's are built in Mexico and not in Italy.

    They are selling well because I suppose they are kind of "fashionable".
