Rice Crispy Exhaust: 2013 Fiat 500 Abarth

One of the problems with driving a fast factory sports car (like a newish Corvette, M3, 911..etc) is that random people want to race you…which leaves you with the conundrum of winning these on-ramp derbys and looking like a rich buy-your-way-into-first-douche and losing your license as you murder innocent strangers in a fiery crash….so the best alternative is just to drive like a dowager in your fancy sports car confident that its Nurburgring track time is better than the next guy’s.  Alternatively you could buy a sleeper V8 powered Chevette, but then you need to convince those new Vette owners to race against you instead of driving like grandpa, and you still won’t win the race because your wheels fall off and you still end up in jail after crashing into a crowd of nuns waiting for the bus.  So…what you really need is a car that looks like it is fast, sounds like it is fast, makes you feel good about mashing the loud pedal, but is really slow and you barely exceed the speed limit.  You need the automotive equivalent of a Harley…like this 2013 Fiat 500 Abarth here on eBay bidding for $8,100 reserve-not-met with $10,500 buy-it-now located in White Plains, NY.
