Fiat 500 Abarth Coming To The US

A few days ago we announced the price of the new Fiat 500. Now, if you didn’t like the original, there is a new version of the 500 coming to the United States and it should be a hoot. It’s called the 500 Abarth and it’s basically a 500 on steroids.

The new Fiat 500 Abarth is electric

If speed isn’t your thing, an electric version of the 500 will also be coming to the United States, as will a 500C convertible.

Rumor has it that we will see the Abarth in three years, as the 500 electric version is due out in 2012.

The European version of the Abarth packs some serious power. Under the hood is a 1.4-liter with 133 horsepower and while that might not seem like a lot, one has to remember that this car is very small.

In total, there are four versions of the Fiat 500 Abarth.

How did they get that car on two wheels?
I am also curious how this Fiat 500 Abarth is photographed on 2 wheels. I may tweet and ask them.
