I'm just wondering if anyone has seen a review of the Abarth yet? I really only follow autoblog and they haven't done anything yet.

Not that I've seen. I'd be surprised if we saw one before the March issues of the magazines hit the stands in February. Fiat would want the (hopefully) great reviews to hit right when the car is arriving at the dealer...ahem...studios.

Also keep an eye on Fiat500USA.com;)

I drove pre-production cars late in January this year as part of the media event for the 500 launch. I expect the timing to be similar....

Do you recall when the embargo was lifted?

It was sometime in February.

Of course anything could change, but you make sense and I think you're on the right track...

Of a Fiat 500? What are yours, you own one right? Chris hasn't driven an Abarth yet.(That we are aware of anyway.)
