Sergio Marchionne Resurrecting Chrysler
In 2009, Chrysler was sputtering toward collapse, with tens of thousands of jobs in jeopardy. But one man bet that he could save the company and make it profitable again. He's Sergio Marchionne. He'd already turned around Fiat and felt the two companies were a good fit -- and clearly he likes a good challenge. So Marchionne took a $6 billion, high-interest U.S. Treasury loan and promised to pay it all back by 2017. Chrysler beat the deadline by six years. Steve Kroft interviews Marchionne as Chrysler rolls out a new car. Copied and shared to further reach of a great interview and message. Video by CBS 60 min via CBSNewsOnline

RWD Abarth 500 Drifting and Burnouts!
I had fun with the Motore Centrale R230, a massively tuned 500 Abarth with the RWD system and the middle engine position. This car is made in collaboration with Lucarelli-Monza and Aznom companies. The R230 has been lightweighted of 50kg and the power increased up to 230hp, so now accelerating from 0 to 100 km/h in just 4.7s and a top speed of 245 km/h. There are much more mods like the Tar-Ox brakes system, Bilstein B14 race suspensions, new turbo and more things.

2012 Fiat 500 Abarth First Drive Review: The Everyman Ferrari
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) There can be no doubt that the 2012 Fiat 500 Abarth is the everyman Ferrari. Not only is it made by the company that owns Ferrari, but it perhaps more importantly it has that exotic super car Exhaust note that will send a shiver down the spine of any sports car lover. Just as importantly it also has the horsepower from its 2X inter-cooled turbo engine to backup the magnificent Exhaust note. With hardly any weight and 160 HP the diminutive Fiat 500 Abarth will tear up the race track or your local neighborhood street. In the process it will also out a huge smile on your face as you floor the gas and head for your favorite twisty road.
