History
I always considered the Fiat 500 to be nothing more than an adorable "Chick Car". With that in mind while car shopping for one of my favorite girls (new daughter in law) we were given an Abarth 500 to take home overnight. Kudos from all viewers as for trim fit and overall uniqueness of styling. And the exhaust made you smile. Under powered was the common complaint. But I had yet to drive it.
Returning the 500 to the car lot I was admiring the Dash and spotted the Sport Mode Button. I was at a stoplight about a half mile from the car lot and finally saw the indicator light at the top of the speedo. The rest is history.
No. Abbey did not get the Abarth. I did.

Be aware that you WILL need to add some sound attenuation material. Peel and stick roofing material with a foil back, double layer, is cheaper and works like the expensive stuff.
