No pricing, but I was just perusing my local dealer's "Reserve your Abarth!" page and they had this to say...

Chrysler has just released their specifications on the 1.4L MultiAir engine that will equip the Fiat 500 Abarth. The 1.4L MultiAir Turbo will be rated at 170hp, that's up from the standard European spec'd version with 135hp and even up from the optional Esseesse version with 160hp.

The US version 1.4-liter FIRE Turbo with Multiair
170 horsepower (128 kW) @ 6750 rpm
170 lb.-ft. (231 Nm) of torque @ 3000 rpm

That power output, 2.04hp/cu in (124 hp/litre), puts the 1.4L MultiAir Turbo engine as having one of the highest specific power values in the world!

In addition to the upgraded power plant, the Abarth will also sport unique exterior features including a full body kit, wider fenders, and Abarth badging. Due to its early 2012 arrival, the Abarth model is expected to wear a 2013 model designation.

Yep, got the email from Fiat about that last night. Luckily, my boss is leaving at 3:30 tomorrow, so I'll be glued to my desktop here. :)

If it is in fact 170 hp, I'll be stoked, assuming a reasonable price point, several color choices, sunroof availability, true manual transmission .... :p

I think the colors will be red, black, and white. They grey/gray would be my choice.
