Some Abarth parts could be in my Sports future.Yeah I agree my expectations are super high.
Im guessing 160 hp through a 5 speed tranny with limited options and if the "tuner option" is in fact a reality then you will have to pay a high premium.
What I REALLY am excited about is to see if abarth/mopar will offer any real performance parts for our 500's. If I could get a dealer installed supercharger for my prima I'd be one happy camper
I think they're comparing a top of the line Lounge at $29,000. Mine was $24,400 or something like that plus taxes. This is the Abarth SS. I think this says the regular US Abarth is about 29,000 which is a nail in the coffin of the US market. This car CANNOT be more than 24,500 in order to compete or it's lights out.The article states that the ESSESS in Australia is $10,000 more than the standard 500C putting the Aussi standard 500C at $29,000. Considering the 500C in the US is $19,500 we should still see a decent price point. Also, we are not getting the convertible version so we can assume it will be $10,000 more than the Sport which is $17,500. Also, my guess (hope) is that in NA it won't be $10,000 more anyways. There is still hope...Wednesday can't come too soon.
