There's a great article in the April 2nd issue of Autoweek on the new Abarth. It's just 2 pages but all positive. They really seemed to like everything about it. But then what's not to like?

Very true; However, with a magazine scoop* on the new Abarth and a great article, the magazine cover was of some metrosexual GQ guy lounging around.....not exactly something to get car magazine buyers purchasing your mag. I subscribe so I got it but I almost chucked it thinking it was a fancy clothes mag advert.

I'd like to have been a fly on the wall when they decided to run a cover pic of some unknown dude (whose claim to fame includes putting "flocking" on the mirror covers of his Abarth, over an article of the actual NA Abarth.

The Abarth article is excellent and deserved to be on the cover. Of course it's their magazine and they're entitled to do silly things. YMMV

A JCW instead of an Abarth? It costs 37%[$8,4oo] more than the Abarth.

Yes, that's the same article that's in the latest hard copy dated April 2, 2012 that I received yesterday.
