Fiat has set up a new website that allows prospective customers to place a deposit on the new 500 Abarth for £500.Those that do place a deposit will be put on a priority list to visit the local dealership and order the car of their choice. Until that order is placed, the £500 is refundable. Final prices haven’t been announced yet, but we’re promised by Fiat insiders that it will be cheaper than a Mini Cooper – so anticipate a starting price of around £12,500.Deliveries of the hot 500 won’t begin until early next year, and Fiat is clearly anticipating that it’s going to be popular. So, should you bother? Well, you can read what we thought of the 133bhp Fiat 500 Abarth, or go to www.fiat.co.uk/500abarth for more information.
