Every November, Woodley Park in Van Nuys looks like Olde Europe for one day. It’s my favorite local car show because I love French and Italian oddballs. And, this year didn’t disappoint! This is what I saw. I took a lot of pictures.
I know we have (or have had) a few 500 Abarth owners here on Oppo, so I was hoping to get some feedback on reliability, hopefully from any of you that have owned yours for a while and possibly out of warranty.
Because we didn’t have a Miura...and we aren’t based in Italy, an Abarth 124 Spider and some English country roads had to do.
Girlfriend said it wasn’t as fast as the Crossfire and wasn’t as loud. After we got back into my car she also said the Crossfire was fun on start up. Why does Fiat sell these things with a muffler? My roommate’s 500 Abarth is louder.
This is how the Abarth should come
I was back home in east Tennessee for the weekend and took the Abarth out for a spin on the back roads near my parent’s house. It was a beautiful time with so much greenery! Had to stop and take a couple shots - iphone camera pics below, I WISH I brought the good camera
Como Park, South Yarra organised by the Fiat Car Club of Victoria.
I’ll officially have the Abarth a year April 9th. I haven’t taken very many “good” shots of it. I had some free time Sunday and here’s what I got
It’s certainly been a while since I’ve been this smitten with a diecast.
Drove the wife around town yesterday taking pictures of murals and hip stuff for her blog. I really wanted to get some Abarth pics, but the car is nasty from the absolute trash weather we’ve had recently.
We have a mural of big angel wings, apparently they’re in several cities. I’m dying to get a shot of the car…
Curse you Fiat North America, I would have gave you my real consumer dollars. Now I’m (still) debating how long the Crossfire will hold together and how long to wait for some 124 Abarth depreciation.
Fiat 500C GQ Edition - has the Abarth powertrain but possibly a softer suspension?
I longed for a Fiat 500 Abarth since the first time I drove one when they were just released in 2008. The experience was magical. We rolled up to the Fiat dealer in northern Alabama in my buddy’s 110 Defender. The dealership as a whole came out and looked at it. We wanted to test drive the Abarth - the only one they…
Sweet Mother of Jesus, those glorious, glorious noises. The exhaust sounds better in person than on any video I’ve watched.
Fiat Abarth 850 Monza.
Oh and it looks like a limited edition gets a grill badge.
In 1975 the green light is given to the Fiat-Abarth team and Bertone for the design and construction of an approved version of the Stradale “ Rally “ Group 4. The Fiat 131 takes for the first time the name of the Fiat factory where it is built , Mirafiori . Only 400 copies only will be built between October 1975 and…
With talk about Abarth taking the 124 rallying, one might as well enjoy an impression of what might be coming. Behold the ‘124 Abarth Spider’ ... in Europe, the standard Fiat 124 Spider gets 140 hp and 240 Nm to play with.
