Once again the naming of the article and pictures is wrong.

That is not a 500X ABARTH. It is a standard 500X testing a non-standard Powertrain.

Nothing to see... and nothing to note.

Wheels: Meh. Just part bin wheels that were big enough to clear the new brake calipers.

Break calipers: Interesting, but that could just be a "performance package" upgrade.

Exhaust: The two exhuast ports really didn't stick out to me in the 'performance' category. However, with the mid pipe is just hanging out like that it tells me that it's AWD and that new pipe is too thick to go to the traditional route ("Hey, let's just Subaru it for now!"). Really wish the spy photographer would of got some undercarriage shots (giggity).

It also could be testing mechanicals for the new Alfa crossover. gr_grin
