10. Date: 2014 Fiat 500 Abarth
The Fiat 500 is a spirited little car with lots of personality; think of it as a MINI Cooper that drinks Chianti instead of ale, espresso in lieu of tea. Abarth upgrades transform the already entertaining Cinquecento into a riotously fun little speed demon. The car’s 1.4-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine puts out 160 hp with 170 lb-ft of torque and barks like a watchdog chasing an intruder; the exhaust note is shockingly loud for a production car. But alas, as much fun as the 500 is she’s too small and too crude for any long-term relationship. Like a woman that chews with her mouth open this Fiat betrays her low-class roots all too frequently.
