Every other day I'm asked what an "Abarth" is ... when I tell them it's a Fiat you get that cockeyed-dog look.
Yeah, I get that too. I’ve just resorted to saying that they are an Italian company that takes mainstream cars and modifies them for performance and appearance. That usually gets a puzzled “wow”, and is mostly sort of true. ?

From my Instagram feed: To misquote one of my hero, Obi-Wan Kenobi: This is the Fiat Spider 124, a modern Italian roadster. Not as clumsy or as random as a Mustang. An elegant weapon... for a more civilized age.

I choose the Lusso purely on looks.
