<p>The cutesy Fiat 500 that landed in the U.S. back in 2011 looked like a lot of fun, but wasn't exactly the rewarding drive enthusiasts were hoping for. A year later that was fixed with the 500 Abarth, the high-performance model that brings 60 more horsepower and 72 more lb.-ft. of torque. The bad-boy 500 is relatively tame when you want it to be, but flatfoot the throttle and it sounds like a squadron of light aircraft is chasing you down. For maximum fun, you can channel that muscle through a heavy-duty five-speed manual (a six-speed auto is optional).</p><p>The feathery Fiat (it weighs just 2512 lbs.) is simply a blast to fling around a racetrack. Not bad for around $23,000.</p><p>Base Price: $22,495<br></p>
