2012 Fiat 500 Abarth, Fiat 500 Exhaust

2012 Fiat 500 Abarth

The Fiat 500 Abarth might have the raspiest exhaust note of any factory-stock 4-cylinder vehicle on the market today. Dig the snarky sound. . . .

Often, turbocharging can muffle a car’s exhaust note, but that clearly hasn’t happened here. Fiat’s tiny 1.4-liter MultiAir engine sounds as easy breathing as any Formula One car. If you can think of a meaner, snarkier, more menacing exhaust note, please tell us about it, there’s room for comments below. We’re pretty impressed the sounds coming out of this pocket-sized turbocharged Fiat. Feel free to watch the video several times. We did.
