Fiat 500 Abarth launch date rumours

Monday, October 20th, 2008

Although the UK launch date for the new Fiat 500 Abarth has yet to be officially announced, we’ve been hearing from a number of sources that the target is early February 2009.

It seems that actually getting hold of and distributing a sufficient number of cars to effect a nationwide launch is proving to be the deciding factor, rather than any political or marketing issues.

At least 200 pre-orders have been taken via the Fiat UK website, and the order book opens officially some time next week, so we hear.

Of course, still no prices or spec confirmations. We’ll keep you posted.
