Yes, it's a typo! The owner has one year from the date the car goes into service. I bought the car in 03/14, so the track experience is open through 03/15. Thanks for catching!

I'd buy that on a heartbeat, but I still need a real back seat. GLWS.

My kids are 14 and 10 and fit quite well, if that's what you mean by a real back seat. It's roomy compared to a 911, but cramped compared to a full sized sedan.

Sorry, my kids are adult-sized. It is a great offer, though.

You might have a tough sale at $22k. Just saw a post from my dealer on Facebook where they STILL have a few brand new 2013's to get rid of at that price. I'm surprised.

Hopefully they will run out at some point!

Regardless, I hope to at least get in the neighborhood of $22k. I listed it on Autotrader last night.

There was a thread on here where a few people grabbed them for cheap. I'm pretty sure this one was a result of that thread, and purchased for close to the $22k price (plus tax, tags, etc.). The dealers here still have leftover 13 cars, but not the Abarth's.

As I would expect, you're spot on. I'll end up losing money on the purchase and sale, but hope to limit the damage.

Not gonna wanna hear this but sub 10K mile Abarths are running between $16K and $19K asking on Autotrader.

To each his own. I love the red seats. One of my other cars is silver over red. I love red interiors!

As for the Abarth, it just isn't for me. Nothing more than that.

So do you still have the 330? Kinda surprised, this doesn't seem like the kind of car you usually go for...

Good luck with the sale!

Fiat of Norwood Mass still has 9 2013 Abarths starting at 20,400 asking price. In fact they have 3 or 4 listed for under 21K. They will take less to get them off the lot.

I don't think it's appropriate for us to undercut his price on his for sale thread. Start a new thread if you want to point out where super deals on enthusiast cars can be found.

Fiat of Worcester Mass has another 7 of them and Providence has 2 or 3 as well. And I'm not trying to undercut him. His car is loaded with options cheaper Abarths don't have. Plus he's 1500 miles from here. Seriously doubt anybody is going to drive that far to buy basically a new car. Very cool cars. I have been trying to talk my wife into getting one and then passing it on to my oldest daughter in a couple of years. My daughter already has requested one of my TR8s as her first car and I'd feel better if she was in something a little newer, even if it is a Fiat.

I sold that after buying this. Your assessment is correct!

Thanks for the support. Mine is loaded, at least as far as Abarths go. As for the fact that dealers still have 2013s as well, selling mine may be more painful than I want, but I hope to limit the bleeding.

I wasn't trying to undercut, and doubt others were. Just pointing out the (somewhat nasty) truth that apparently the 2013's are still to be had at a low price brand new. Which surprises me really. (And I still freaking love this little car.)

Yeah, no disrespect of undercut here. I hope he gets every nickel he is asking and then some.
