Great write up, and the background art is almost as cool as the Abarth. It's also good to see the color combo I'm getting ie grey w/red stripe although mine will have this red stripe http://street-race.org/Fiat500a not the factory one.

Those look a lot better than the ones you can option at the dealer!

That stripe does look great! I originally was going with the grey with red stripe too, but I still can't find a pic of that combo with the american grey and I'm having a difficult time visualizing it... so I changed to the black stripe. It's has a more timeless look to me as well, so I know I won't regret the choice in a year or so.

These brand new reviews and videos have made me soooooo flipping excited and impatient! I want my Abarth NOW!!! :adoration:

I just stumbled upon the US Grigio w/ red stripe and mirror caps! Oh I might have to change back to red after all! (Hopefully this link works)

The Black stripe is definitely more elegant looking, but since I'm an old man trying to relive my boy-racer youth I went for that red stripe and a red checkered roof:D
