Been lurking on this forum for months and finally placed a deposit on an Abarth 500 last month, so I figured I should finally "come out." I live in the Chicago 'burbs, but I' was born and raised in Southern California. I love Italian clothes, food, wine...and, hopefully, cars.

I was kind of hoping for the pearl white (called Funk White in the UK), but it appears that NA only gets regular white. I'm leaning toward metallic black with black/red stitch leather because it will match the sinister kitty which will be parked next to it. Debating over red mirrors and stripes; the vote is tied 1/1.

My dealer seems to think that the cars will just come in and won't be able to be custom-spec'd (at least initially), so I may have to settle on another color combo if I don't want to keep waiting. (Of course, I don't think they know for sure.) My guess is that the first ones will be loaded with options, which is what I want, anyway. Pure speculation at this point, however. I think gray with red leather would be nice, too.

I'm hoping to do some carbon fiber goodies for the interior and maybe exterior if I can find quality pieces. I'd prefer to get the real ones used on the 695 Tributo Ferrari.

Your grasp of the obvious is very impressive. Actually, I'll consider myself lucky if I get one that soon.

I was just up at our 2nd brand new Fiat dealership. Was told the Abarth won't come in till March of next year. Only maybe 10 cars a month, per dealership. My wife likes the black model. There thinking about, $25,000 loaded.
