You can pre-order Sam but it wont as far as I am aware guarantee 1st delivery. I seem to remember someone on here saying there was only 1500 earmarked for the UK to begin with, unlikely you will be within that but you never know.

Re: Has anyone ordered a 500 abarth??

Yes, I have and was told that I should expect the car in Jan/Feb. Placed my deposit 4 weeks ago so you might be lucky if you phone around a few Abarth dealers. With all the positive press coverage in the last couple of weeks I'd think cars will be getting snapped up.

Re: Has anyone ordered a 500 abarth??

I've put the 500 deposit down on the website. Only did that on the 19/08/08

It's refundable though so by no means will I be definitely be getting one. It will depend on trade in price of my 500 lounge 1.2 and money and other boring stuff etc etc. I would only have the leather and even though the leather is in nearly every abarth pic I believe it's going to be around 850

I'm in no rush for it as I'm perfectly happy with my current 500 but I wan't to plan ahead for when the 500 becomes as common as the mini so I wan't something a bit different to the regular 500

I've heard there won't be many options on the first batch of Abarth's and if that includes not being able to add climate control then I'd rather just wait or else it would be like taking a step backwards from my current lounge.

Re: Has anyone ordered a 500 abarth??

not official official at 13,500 but pretty well accepted thats what it will be - and by time you've put a few options on expect it to be nearer 14,500!

and if you want the ss kit later on, then that will be another 3,500 please sir

so a snip at 18k all in for a decent specced 500 abarth ss

Re: Has anyone ordered a 500 abarth??

Just put my name down for one this morning but as there is no official Abarth dealer over here in N.I I have no idea were I stand. Dealers looking into it for me.

Time to start saving.

I've just been over in Italy and they are now advertising the Abarth on TV.
Has anyone seen the ads over here?
