15k: Roasted Espresso: 2013 Fiat 500 Abarth

Classic Italian cars are like a fine wine, aged to perfection and consumed in a leisurely manner.  Modern Italian cars, on the other hand, are like coffee.  Properly prepared, they can be tasty, but consume them quickly, lest they spoil and become rancid.  Find this 2013 Fiat 500 Abarth here on eBay offered for $14,542 buy-it-now or make-offer located in Mountain Lakes, NJ.

The Fiat 500 marked the long awaited return of Fiat to the US market, approximately 25 years after the Italians fled the new world.   The world has changed a lot since the original introduction of Fiat motor carriages in 1908.  Today, currency is fiat and a Fiat is a Chrysler, so you could say you use a fiat to buy a Chrysler from a Fiat dealer…or something.

Under the hood of a 500 in Abarth spec is a 1.4 liter version of Fiat’s multiair that puts out 160 horsepower and 170 ft-lbs of torque.  You get a 5-speed manual gear box mated to the front wheels and enough lift-off snap-crack-pop coming out of the tailpipes to start your own cereal company.

Always bet on black.  tips@dailyturismo.com
