    Default 2012 Fiat 500 Abarth - Daily For Sale!

    My wife has decided she likes going to the track and wants her own car to do so...aka we are going to be poor for the rest of our lives.

    To facilitate this we're selling her 2012 Fiat 500 Abarth to fund the purchase of a dual purpose HPDE car that doesn't eat front tires. If we had the space I'd find a way to keep this one, super fun to bop around town in. The Fiat still has an active warranty from
    Carmax which is transferable, 3 1/2 years remaining on it.

    Pros:
    One of the best sounding stock exhausts (your neighbors will love you), decent gas mileage, it can actually fit an adult in the back seat, you can create your own parking spots.

    Cons:
    Front wheel drive, a few paint chips, could use a buff.

    Details:

    2012 Fiat 500 Abarth
    2 Owners (We are the second owner)
    42,xxx Miles (Going up - Driven a few days a week)
    CarMax Max Care Warranty, $150 Deductible with ~33,000 miles remaining - TRANSFERABLE!
    Has every option excluding nav/satellite radio:
    Leather Seats
    Bose Stereo
    Moon Roof

    Recent Maintenance:
    Oil Change - Oct 2017
    Coil Pack Replaced - June 2017
    New Tires - Mar 2017
    Front Rotors - September 2016
    Front Brake Pads - Sept 2016
    New Battery - June 2016

    Upgrades:
    Konig Hypergram 15x7.5 Wheels With TPMS Sensors - 8lbs lighter on each corner compared to stock wheels (also included in purchase). These made a massive improvement to ride quality and look good too!
    Continental Extreme Contact Sport tires, 205/50/15 - Purchased Spring 2017, only a few thousand miles on these, great tire!
    500 Madness 28mm Rear Torsion Beam - Understeer less! This really wakes up the car.
    Front Chassis Braces - Improves Ride Quality
    NeuSpeed Engine Mount Insert - Adds a touch of NVH but locates the engine/shifter much better. Easily removed if you do not like it.
    GoFastBits DV+ - Replaces the stock, plastic, diverter valve and eliminates some turbo lag

    TrackHQ take it home now price, $9500.

    I will update the post with some interior shots when I get home.

    Thanks, I have not followed up trying to sell this thing. Still for sale and finally have the time to get this into a new home. Willing to deliver to a buyer if distance is reasonable.
