Luckily there is a far superior OSGiken (however it’s spelled), one available from Goodwin that you can install. I wanted to buy a new car that I didn’t have to do anything to, so I opted for the Abarth. That being said I will slowly start to mod it as it gets more miles and stuff wears out.So in Europe you're a flash tune away from the same engine performance.
However there is ONE thing the Abarth has that the Classica/Lusso doesn't that's not easily solved and that's the limited slip diff. If you're street driving that doesn't matter. On track though, you will desperately want that LSD.
