Thanks Chris. I configured mine with the Safety & Convenience Package & the Power Sunroof, much like my 500 Sport. It's exactly $4500 more than my 500 Sport ($19650 Sport vs. $24150 Abarth). Ouch! While the sticker price of the 500 Abarth is reasonable at $22700 (including destination), it should have come standard with the satellite radio, security alarm and automatic climate control. Once you get the Leather, 17" Wheels, TomTom navigation and Mirror Caps/Stripes (I thought that would have been standard equipment), the price swells up to $26900! Madonna! No, not the singer but the Italian expression, if you get my drift. Still love the car 'though.

So, it is $22,200 plus $500 destination fee? Exactly $1,000 higher than my 2003 Cooper "S" at $21,625 including $400/metallic paint and $1,250 for the leather interior. For me, I can't get to my studio fast enough at this price point. This makes the 500 Abarth very attractive to me. A car for the price (roughly) of a new Norton 961, guess I'll buy the car instead of another motorcycle. Turns out I wouldn't want the satellite radio and all the bells & whistles (alarm, etc.) because I don't need security in the area I live. So glad that the Abarth didn't end up costing $24,000 or so as we thought initially, this makes purchasing one alot more palatable - CIAO / HTWT. SO . . . . that's $22,000 plus $700 destination fee = $22,700 will still work-for-me / Fred.

So the Nero or Pearl White doesn't cost $500 extra?

I would NOT assume that at this point.

Me either. I am confused why it wouldn't be included in the post, which seems to have all of the pricing details nailed down.

I suspect just an oversight on Fiat/Chrysler's part.

That is all the information I have, that's why I posted it as preliminary. As we've seen, everything is subject to change. I'd assume some paint colors will cost more. It's official when it's officially up on their site (and even then it can change ;))

Quick question Chris.

The info in the launch specs show the 17" tires as 205/40R17 and you're showing 205/45R17XL. Which of these is a misprint or is the 45 series an updated size? 45 series would certainly be easier to live with than 40. Just wondering.

Thanks

Thanks for catching that. That was a misprint in the info given. I wouldn't worry too much about the 40 series tires. I have 195/40R17 and live in NY State where the roads are lousy. The 40s on the regular 500 are fine, no real discernable degrade in the ride. Of course, its suspension is probably more compliant than the Abarth, but I should be able to report about that soon. ;)

That's right Chris, just TEASE us...... anyhow, I'm probably going with the 17". I checked both sizes on Tire Rack and there are many, many more choices in the 205/40R17 than the 195/45R16 size. More choices mean better prices, although if experience is any guide, getting more than 15k miles out of either one will be the exception, not the rule (GA, ask me about my old Focus SVT) :)

Hi Chris,

Just wondering if the standard tires will be "4 season."

Thanks much!

Does the Tom Tom navigation $400 include the Tom, Tom device? Or is it just for the pre wiring and mount?
