I'm surprised Australia isn't getting US spec as most Aussies i know say the country is more aligned to the US than Europe.  Either way I'd love someone who represents the brand to justify the difference between Europe/US.

Maybe it's because a multiair A500 would threaten APE sales.  Is the APE available in Australia?  I don't think it's available in the US. 

Ummmmm we drive on the proper side of the road

No we do not get the APE - but there maybe a chance with the recent change in distribution ........ however I would not expect so, the A5oo is just so fringe here

    There will be no multiair in 595.
    Colours are to be confirmed but it is believed to be available in most colours including the bi-colours.
    Details will be confirmed when Abarth U.K. confirm the exact specs to the dealer body.

    oh no, really no multi air? so if I wanted a 500c next year, its going to be the same spec basically with possibly the added bonus of a new colour?

    Just to avoid confusion, it's 160bhp in the US-spec 500.

    At least we can thank John for letting us know what little he knows, I visited a few dealers last week and they know nothing (or at least that's what they say) and don't even seem interested in selling a car or taking an order.

    Why the hell Abarth didn't give a franchise to less pretentious companies like Mangoletsi is beyond me.  I hate it when salesmen judge you by your appearance.

    Rant over.

    I think the trouble as far as the 595 is concerned is the dealers don't know enough yet to take orders, I had a nightmare trying to sort mine out because the finance system hadn't been updated with January's figures (this was in mid jan), be patient with them.

    I too had the initial lack of interest and went to another dealer I couldn't be more happy with, I'd suggest ringing up your local dealer first (manchester?) and booking a test drive rather than just walking in.

    I think we know enough, it's just the official price we are waiting for.
