Outside of the extremely expensive Ferrari/Maserati/Track Only special editions of course, it seems the USDM Abarth is actually the best and has several advantages:

- only one which uses the high tech multi air engine
- bigger turbo then the one over seas
- clocked at around 6.8 seconds to 60, which seems a full half second faster then the one over seas

Only cons for the US Abarth I can see are:

- No Campavolo Gray(Euro std)
- No xenon headlight option(Euro option)
- No Sabelt front seat option(maybe in the future?)
- No Koni FSD shocks in the rear(Euro std)
- No drilled rotors in the rear(Euro std)

When comparing 0-60mph be careful not to confuse it with European 0-100kph(0-62mph) times. The 2-3 shift is always around there and can easily add 0.5s to the time.
