Default 2012 Fiat 500 Abarth

My wife has decided she likes going to the track and wants her own car to do so...aka we are going to be poor for the rest of our lives.

To facilitate this we're selling her 2012 Fiat 500 Abarth to fund the purchase of a dual purpose HPDE car that doesn't eat front tires. If we had the space I'd find a way to keep this one, super fun to bop around town in. This still has an active warranty from
Carmax which is transferable, 3 1/2 years remaining on it.

Pros:
One of the best sounding stock exhausts (your neighbors will love you), decent gas mileage, it can actually fit an adult in the back seat, you can create your own parking spots.

Cons:
Front wheel drive, a few paint chips, could use a buff.

Details:

2012 Fiat 500 Abarth
2 Owners (We are the second owner)
42,xxx Miles (Going up - Driven a few days a week)
CarMax Max Care Warranty, $150 Deductible with ~33,000 miles remaining - TRANSFERABLE!
Has every option excluding nav/satellite radio:
Leather Seats
Bose Stereo
Moon Roof

Recent Maintenance:
Oil Change - Oct 2017
Coil Pack Replaced - June 2017
New Tires - Mar 2017
Front Rotors - September 2016
Front Brake Pads - Sept 2016
New Battery - June 2016

Upgrades:
Konig Hypergram 15x7.5 Wheels With TPMS Sensors - 8lbs lighter on each corner compared to stock wheels (also included in purchase). These made a massive improvement to ride quality and look good too!
Continental Extreme Contact Sport tires, 205/50/15 - Purchased Spring 2017, only a few thousand miles on these, great tire!
500 Madness 28mm Rear Torsion Beam - Understeer less! This really wakes up the car.
Front Chassis Braces - Improves Ride Quality
NeuSpeed Engine Mount Insert - Adds a touch of NVH but locates the engine/shifter much better. Easily removed if you do not like it.
GoFastBits DV+ - Replaces the stock, plastic, diverter valve and eliminates some turbo lag

TurboKitten take it home now price, $9500.

I will update the post with some interior shots when I get home.

Best of luck! Looks like a very clean car for the price. May I ask what the dual HPDE car you're going for is?

Thanks! She wants to get an FRS or BRZ - extra room so we can throw a duffel bag and our helmets for a quick overnight at the track without getting the truck and trailer together. We briefly considered an EcoBoost mustang with the Performance Pack and Recaro but tire costs scared us off. We've already found a few candidates for a FRS so we are motivated to move this one.
