Yep, that’s Jay Leno in the picture above doing a handbrake turn and burnout in the Abarth 500. Proof that this car is so exciting it can even turn a dignified old man such as Leno into a hoonigan! Abarth 500 is the definitive pocket rocket with a 160 horsepower turbo MultiAir engine and a sports chassis that is always willing to play. It’s like a excitable little puppy, this car. And we absolutely adore it.
You can fool around all day in this car and still do 30 mpg. Also because with a small car the limits are fairly low, you can have as much fun driving 70 mph in this as you’d have driving 170 in a Lambo.
