Chrysler Canada: 2012 Fiat® 500 Abarth Makes its Canadian Debut at the 2012 Montreal Auto Show

January 12, 2012 , Montreal, Que. - Faithful to the “small but wicked” saying coined for Karl Abarth’s cars in the 1960s, the new 2012 Fiat® 500 Abarth arrives to North America with the racing traditions that have made it a success on European roadways and racetracks — world-class performance and precision, purposeful and aggressive styling, high power-to-weight ratio and limited-production volume.

“Following the very successful launch of the Fiat 500 in Canada in 2011, we are pleased to now introduce the all-new 2012 Fiat 500 Abarth at the Montreal Auto Show,” said Ed Broadbear, vice president Marketing, Chrysler Canada Inc. “The Fiat 500 Abarth is perfect for the Canadian enthusiast who wants legendary Italian performance at an attainable price.”

Building on the excitement of the new 2012 Fiat 500 (Cinquecento), the new Fiat 500 Abarth is designed for track-day enthusiasts and driving purists who want the ultimate high-performance small car with the pedigree of an exclusive Italian exotic.

With its all-new 1.4-litre MultiAir® Turbo engine, Abarth-tuned suspension and brake systems, race-inspired design, and technology features not traditionally included on a small car, the new 2012 Fiat 500 Abarth unleashes the brand’s legendary performance heritage to North American streets.

“Abarth treatment” and tradition continues to deliver extraordinary results In the late 1950s Karl Abarth believed that race cars with brilliant performance could be derived from small, lightweight, everyday driving cars — including the original Cinquecento (500). And his tradition of track-ready small cars continues today by utilizing the 2012 Fiat 500 Sport as a base point for the new high-performance Fiat 500 Abarth.
