    I just don't think they should trow this sort of c**p in our eyes expecting us to believe they have decades of racing pedigree.

    The name has decades of racing pedigree.

    But well, it's a press release from the company, it is to be expected...

    I kind of see your point. But given that you don't know where the engineers come from, they may indeed have decades of experience at other companies. Besides, it's a press release. What do you expect them to say?

    Yeah, i know, you are all right. more than anything the press releases are allways going to be a nice marketing exercise. I just wish they could keep it real and leave the car and it's qualitys to do the marketing work.

    I actually kinda lika (very kinda) the new front fascia.

    "Abarth" is racing since the early 2000s, I think 2001 with the Stilo and second gen Punto, even if those were Fiat Punto Abarth models, rather than Abarth Punto models. It's just a name.

    It was name. Now it's a separate entity.
