The Fiat 500 is a nice subcompact, even if it does lack a bit in the thrust department. On the other end of the spectrum, the 500 Abarth, while awesome, is probably a bit nuts for most drivers. Enter the 500 Turbo, a 135 horse version of the regular 500. 

In order to keep that 35% increase in power manageable, similar chassis, brake, and suspension upgrades to the Abarth have been added to the 500 Turbo. In addition to the performance upgrades, there are some exterior styling effects and a Beats by Dr. Dre audio system. It's price well above the regular cinquecento and a bit below the Abarth at $19,500.

Would you go for this, for spend an extra $2,500 for the Abarth?
