Fiat 500 Abarth at home on track.
17-in. wheels are optional.
Logo honors founder Karl Abarth, born a Scorpio.
White wheels distinctive, but may prove polarizing.
Abarth’s “concentric double-tip dual exhaust system” produces joyous ruckus.
Italian flair apparent in sculpted steering wheel.
Interior comfortable, but a tad quirky.
Manual transmission is standard, could use a sixth forward gear.
Even with a few complaints, the Abarth is the shining star in the 500 lineup and the one to own: It’s reasonably priced, riotous on the track and the muscle car of the future.
