2012 FIAT 500 Abarth Bows at LA Auto Show

If you like the FIAT 500’s stylish design and compact packaging, but would trade some of J.Lo’s dance moves for better performance, your prayers may have been answered. The high-performance FIAT 500 Abarth makes its debut today at the LA Auto Show. With its turbocharged 1.4-liter engine, the 500 Abarth makes 160 horsepower. That’s 59 more than the base 500, but the Abarth model also adds a performance-tuned suspension and brakes to help reign in its additional power.
