2015 Abarth 500 Automatic (USA)

Nice little video of Allison Singer (Abarth Vehicle Integration Engineer) Talking about the mechanics of the new Auto Abarth.

Thought it was worth a share :) I would love an Auto version option over here, especially if it drives like this one!

    She looks nice ;D

    What do you mean by saying you would love an auto version Porthos? Isnt this the same as a normal automatic abarth? Or is it completely automatic and there isnt the manual option?

    I think the "normal" automatic Abarths are better as you get the chance to have the option for both. Plus the gear change buttons look nicer ;D

    The Semi Auto MTA boxes arent quite as smooth as this fully auto one ;) I have a friend who is having an amputation and hes looking at automatics. He loved this but was sad it was USA only.

    Oh yeah. I dont like that "kick" either. When im driving smoothly and just cruising i dont like that. But when im driving hard then i prefer it to the double clutch ones that change gear without a "feel".
