While checking the Facebook Fiat USA page I stumbled across this picture.

While this is only Photoshop, it makes me wonder if Fiat has missed a great opportunity to give some attitude to the Abarth. Don;t get me wrong, I love the good boy face of the 500, but Abarths should be feared ;)


Maybe 500 Madness will end up making a Kit for it....

Wow! I really like that! It totally gives the car a more aggressive look.

As a side note - it looks like Fiat have addressed the common F/A500 screen wiper issue by getting the technician to put the passenger wiper arm against his knee and giving it a 'tweak'.

Thats a serious crank in the arm...almost looks like its a RHD arm on a LHD car!

That's how all N/A fiats look like, the passenger side wiper arm has an angle on it, not really sure why.

Has to do with Fed requirement for how much glass must be swept by the wipers.

Too bad they didn't go retro with the 1000 Berlina style wipers, I have been looking at an old Abath style rubber hood hold down left over from my Abarth-Simca, might work with a backing plate behind to plastic nose!

This could be achieved in a few ways. You could actually weld aluminum to the hood to create this effect. This is done on vw/audi's. An easier less expensive way is to either use a vinyl or paint to give the look over the headlight. A final way, which would have to be done by a manufacturer would be to make a fiberglass eyelid that is paintable and attaches to the light itself. If Fiat would bring over the sequential abarth, I would show you. ;)
