Abarth 500 Price, Specifications And Auto Facts

Carlo Abarth, an Italian designer born in Austrian, established the Abarth firm in 1949. A new, highly successful racing car team was formed after the business bought the remaining assets of the racing team they managed, Cisitalia. Abarth gave up the reins of the company he founded in 1971 and sold it to Fiat. Almost immediately, Fiat repurposed the storied Italian marque into a racing subsidiary, and a slew of high-performance vehicles bearing the Abarth name appeared on the market. Innumerable Abarth variants of the first-generation Fiat 500 and 600 stand out among the most famous.

To compete with the Mini and the (Citroen) DS3, Fiat brought back the 500 nameplates in 2007 for a small, retro-styled hatchback. Simultaneously, Fiat was able to return to the North American market by purchasing the insolvent Chrysler brand from the Daimler group. In fact, the latest version of the Abarth 500 was introduced to the North American market in 2012 for the first time.
