It is the US Version. If look close at the first pic's posted in this thread you will see it's not like the euro version posted above. It's in Michigan.Doesn't look like it has climate control, heated seats, or the upgrade Bose Sirius sound system. Wonder what the price is? Is that a 5 or 6 transmission. Where was this vehicle located?
That Euro one is in Michigan too, also with M plates (according to the photographer). That's why I thought it COULD be the same car. But as pointed out there are a lot more differences than just the hatch, so... looks like we got a glimpse of the US AbarthIt is the US Version.

thats how I would want it. The abarth makes me wonder though..I dont really like the wheels, the brakes are still small, there is chrome every where on it which I hate and it needs to be lowered . So for me all that it has over the stock 500 is a turbo kit. If i do trade or sell my 500 then i'd lose a ton of money and be upside down on my load so I may as well just spend the $3500 or whatever that it will cost to get an aftermarket supercharger kit since I much prefer that over a turbo. Not to mention I have a Prima which is kind of cool ( to me) And plus 170 HP (or more) in a tiny car with small brakes isnt really going to be all that fun for city driving.Looks like this will be the "bare bones" model. Cloth seats, no ATC, no premium sound system. Now I wonder how much it will cost.
