I Shouldn't Love This Ridiculous Fiat 500 Abarth Parkour Video, But I Do

Yes, it’s silly. Yes, it’s advertisement-y as hell. (For whatever it’s advertising. Fiats, I guess?) But it stars the Fiat 500 Abarth, maybe the third or fourth most fun car you can buy at the moment, so it’s alright in my book. Take a look.

Set to that Awolnation song you keep hearing on the radio, it features the Substance Over Hype team doing all sorts of bonkers Parkour-style stunts in a trio of 500 Abarth Cabrios. Flips, wall running, roof jumping and ghost riding ensue. There’s even some powerslides, all set to the Abarth’s raucous exhaust note.


God, I love that little car. Next time I’m in a Cabrio I’ll have to try and flip into its open roof. I’ll update you on how it goes from the hospital.

Hat tip to Gary!

This video was painful. When they landed, you could see the dents. It’s an ok idea, but... Abarths were harmed in the making of this film.

This was at about 1 minute in. It was still entertaining though.
