The 2017 Fiat 500C Abarth might just be the least expensive way to get your thrills.
The 2017 Fiat 500C Abarth starts at $21,490, while the hard top is just $19,995.
Compared with the standard 500, the Abarth sports stiffer suspension thanks to modified spring rates, unique control arms and a beefy 22-millimeter rear stabilizer bar.
While the 500C might technically be a convertible, it's more like a large sunroof, leaving the frame of the roof intact.
The dual exhaust spits out a surprisingly angry note.
The 500 Abarth sports a 1.4-liter MultiAir turbocharged engine, good for 160 horsepower and 170 pound-feet of torque when mated to a five-speed manual transmission.
The stick shift is positioned high on the center stack, close to the steering wheel, all the better for quick gear changes.
The tiny 5.4 cubic-foot trunk is enough to hold a small piece of luggage and a computer bag.
The 500C Abarth features a very basic version of the Uconnect infotainment system.
