Headphones in, volume up. Here is an exhaust montage of the raucous 2016 Fiat 500 Abarth with a manual transmission. The Abarth’s soundtrack is bone chilling, so much so that I would say it sounds better than the BMW M4, Cadillac ATS-V, and even the Ford Mustang GT. It evokes auditory memories of the triple-the-price Alfa Romeo 4C that we had a few months back. Though the noise is not as raw or as focused as the 4C, the mantra is the same: pure, unadulterated noise. And the fact that the Abarth doesn’t even have a muffler says it all.
Everything coming out of the exhaust is there to entertain. The snorts, the gnarls, the mini-Ferrari noises make every penny worth it. The hardtop does mute out some of that noise though, which is why I prefer the convertible option.
