Fiat’s Abarth tuning arm might turn out a greater range of models in the future according to a new report.

The brand currently offers three models, two of which are sold in North America. There’s the 500, 500C and the not-for-North-America Punto. But Abarth’s European boss, Marco Magnanini, told MSN that “the 500 family will offer us options. We want to take our brand values to other cars. In future it is possible.”

While he didn’t name specific models, it could mean that the company is considering a hotter version of the 500L. If that turned out to be the case, Fiat would have a product that could take on the MINI Countryman Cooper S.

Fiat unveiled the Abarth 595 (above) during the Frankfurt Motor Show earlier this month as a tribute to the Abarth 595, which debuted 50 years ago in Turin.
