Sounds about right to me though I'd put the sport/appearance upgrade closer to $26.5K.

i was just on the official fiat website and they have the gucci edition starting at 23000, and a pink ribbon breast cancer one at 22000, i hope the abarth isn't priced to much higher then that,i'm gonna buy the "tuner kit" so hopefully it's not like 30,000

Does anyone think the Abarth will be available in Automatic? I know most people want 5 or 6 speed but I commute in heavy Los Angeles traffic and would be more comfortable with an Automatic.

Im betting the abarth will start at 24K US and tuner kit will bring it to 26. Here in Canada we get screwed so base price will start at 26 K and the tuner kit will jump it up to 28K. Im hoping we can get some sort of kit for our non abarth 500's..it will save me the trouble of tryiung to sell mine etc etc.

Also at 170 HP I think it will do 0-60 in about 6.8 seconds..the turbo cooper S does it in about 6.9..and the abarth is 250 LBS lighter so I think it will be quicker..if the tuner kit they speak of brings it to 200 HP I think you'd be looking at a 6.4 ish 0-60
