TopGear said the Abarth edition of that thing was the ballz... stock version looks meh.

Edit: from the headlights forward kills the stock version. From rear-quarter shots where you can't see the front, it actually looks fine... but the little pug-butt nose bump just crushes the lines for the front of the thing. The wider lower grill section on the Abarth kinda helps... but it's not much better.

Yeah, they loved the Abarth SS, but I don't know if we get that in the states.

The reason for the front end to be like that is became the original had that same front end. I bet the only difference between abarth and abarth ss is most likely is exhaust, intake and tune.
