I like it, the 2 tone paint looks good IMO.

But paddle shift automated manual box as standard? FAIL.

I think i like too! 2 tone paint is very Hot Rod/retro. Would have to drive one first though. Is it still too girly for a bloke to drive though?

Oh, and it'll probably cost about 40k judging by Fiat's current mental pricing

Personally I will wait until I see the official Fiat press release before believing they will be paddle shift only, or maybe thats how they want to make the model unique.

Do like the two tone though even if it is a bit old hat now

Nice - better than I thought it would be. Punto Evo Abarth looking very good too.

Have to say i think the Punto Evo has ruined the Abarth for me with the silly bumper inserts. You can get away with them on a darker car, but on a white car they look silly. IMHO of course

Official press release is up, two tone will be optional and the so will the flappy paddle, not standard as AC suggest. To be shown at Geneva.

Re: The 500C abarth is here!!!..(maxi):-)

Can somebody please explain to me why the Abarth 500c doesn't get the Multiair engine and the Evo does?

because then it would have the same power as the esseesse as standard and they couldn't charge you 3k for a remap, springs, brake discs/pads and springs
