Exotic car companies generally harp about how limited production runs of their cars propel them to some sort of elevated status. Like Horacio Pagani talks about how they struggle to keep so many moneyed people at bay as they go about selling 25 Zondas a year. Morgan and Bugatti are no different. So you probably think driving something exotic that can turn heads and still look like Danica Patrick shedding her clothes for Sports Illustrated means you need to be a top flight exec with an American finance firm, drawing bonuses that cause a slight uproar in the White House. Well, you actually don’t, but you still sort of need to give an arm and a leg for this – the Fiat 500 Abarth.

You wonder why Fiat didn’t get this to India instead of the Multijet that feels as blah as a serving of minestrone soup, especially after you look at it. Seriously, if this isn’t the most beautiful looking limited edition version of a mass production premium hatch, apart from the John Cooper Works Mini, I don’t know what is. I love the Japanese flag because red on white never looked so gorgeous and generally if more of our friends from the Orient drove one of these, the Order of the Rising Sun will just land up in their postboxes. And then there are those Scorpion badges. I don’t know if Fiat purchased them at a Home Depot clearance sale or not, because at last count, I must have run my fingers over at least ten of them. But it looks spectacular; enough to cause a slight wobble in anyone’s knees. And as Pablo experienced first-hand in Italy with the Punto Abarth, it can even steal the thunder from a limited edition Lamborghini!
