Fiat 500 Abarth already sold out for the 2012MY

Article by Christian Andrei, on June 5, 2012

If the Fiat 500 is not is not a best-seller in the United States (yet!), we can’t say the same thing for the 2012 Fiat 500 Abarth as company sources confirmed the fact that Chrysler Group is no longer accepting wholesale orders for the sporty hatchback. Apparently, the Abarth 500 is a success in the United States and customers who placed orders will wait for the 2013MY, which is expected to arrive this fall.

A disappointed customer said that he put his deposit back in March but he found out that he will be bumped to the 2013 build batch. Although the Abarth 500 went on sale in April, the company had cash deposits from more than 1,000 customers.

As a result, the production was increased to about 3,000 units, but this is the maximum number that the company’s factory in Toluca, Mexico can handle. In an official statement, the company said that the dealer orders for the Abarth 500 exceeded the production run for the 2012MY. Still, for those interested, the car can be found in dealer inventories around the country, at a higher price of course.

The 2012 Fiat Abarth 500 is priced at $22,000 (not including destination), and it is powered by a 1.4-liter MultiAir Turbo engine capable to deliver 160 hp (119 kW) and 170 lb.-ft. (230 Nm) of torque.

Moreover, the vehicle features a retuned suspension, new braking system and 16-inch aluminum wheels. Furthermore, we find a new front bumper, new side sills as well as a sexy rear apron with integrated air diffuser and exhaust system. The interior features stylish sport buckets, a new steering wheel and a new set of aluminum pedals.
