Since Baltimore is the port of entry you get them first! My salesperson told me that we'd have them in central Texas about three weeks later due to transportation time.News from FCA is showing that the 1st 124 Abarths are scheduled to arrive in Baltimore on Sept 7th. 308 Units on the way.
I believe.. if they are coming from Japan.. they will not have the heritage stripe.Hopefully someone will be able to get some pics of the cars coming off the boat on Wednesday. I wonder if it'll be an even split with the Abarths that have the heritage package and the ones that dont.
They are all coming from the Hiroshima plant and then once they hit port they're sent to one location to have the stripe applied here in the US. So I'm assuming if they dont do this whole first batch with the stripe then we'll start seeing those w/o it sooner than the ones with it. I for one no longer want the stripe since I was so indifferent towards it until I found out the price tag attached to it.I believe.. if they are coming from Japan.. they will not have the heritage stripe.
I'd guess those won't show up until November .. From Italy to US.. As Fiat said the heritage stripe would be hand painted in Italy.
