Good News at last! 500 Abarth prices revealed
« on: December 23, 2008, 06:32:36 pm »
After spending the best part of the day ringing all my customer (anybody who has an answer phone message I will try again tommorrow) I can finally confirm the price and availability of the Abarth 500.
The price of the base car (135bhp) will be £13500. Any option costs are the same as Fiat 500 (i.e. Skydome £550).
We all know by now that the first 200 cars are all the same and are priced at £14850 OTR. They will arrive at the dealers for launch in late Febuary.
Ordering for bespoke cars will open in the first week of January and those cars will arrive in the middle of March.
Hopefully demonstrators will arrive at the dealers sometime in January.
The only thing I haven't had confirmed yet is the price of the Esse Esse kit.
Looks like it will be a Happy Christmas.

    Is there a list of available options (as I know that there are some differences to F500)?

    Well if its all the same the fiat 500 i would say these are the prices

    leather £638 (ithink thats a bargain)
    Skydome £550
    stripes £100
    Alloys  Â£150 - £200
    Climate £245
    Metallic Black £367
    Red £245

    Hi John, thanks for your time on the phone today. Sorry we changed our minds yet again, but as you are fairly confident a custom ordered car will only be a couple of weeks behind, I thought it would be best for my wife to have the car she really wanted!
    Is there not a picture anywhere of a 500 with a Sky Dome?

    I am now nearly as excited about the wife's new car as I am about my own forthcoming Nissan GT-R!

    Thanks! Looks cool, especially on a black car where it is colour coded.
    I look at it as a Porsche Targa equivalent; not bad for £550!

    I've been dreading posting this - Fiat have put their prices up as of 1st Jan, largely to reclaim the VAT cut.

    That means the options are going back up a few quid to what they were before, but as I understand it, the base price of the car should still be the same £13,500.

    Leather upholstery    Â£650
    Electric “Sky Dome” sunroof    Â£550
    Fixed glass sunroof    Â£300
    Climate control    Â£250
    Auto-dimming rear view mirror    Â£100
    Blue&Me Map    TBA
    Blue&Me Nav    TBA
    Chrome mirrors    Â£70
    Five-hole 17″ alloy wheels with 205/40R17 tyres    Â£250
    Ten-spoke 17″ alloy wheels with 205/40R17 tyres    Â£250
    White/Black/Red Stripe & Mirror kits    Â£110
    White/Black/Red checkerboard roof kits    Â£110
    White/Black/Red Scorpion bonnet stickers    Â£80
    Scorpion Black paintwork    Â£375
    Factory Red paintwork    Â£250
    Grey paintwork    Â£250
    White Pearl paintwork    Â£700

    By my maths, that makes the first 200 fixed-spec cars to be £14,840 - only up £40 or so.
