Article from the Irish Vintage scene magazine.
It's about a Lancia get together earlier in the year that I went to. One of the guys from another forum just brought it to my attention. You might have to squint a little to read the text. I copied it and then enlarged it so I could read it.

First official photo of the New Fiat 500 Abarth
Fiat themselves have released this photo along with a trailer for the New 500 Abarth. It has a 1.4 16v 135bhp engine according to the bumph. I was hoping for at least 150 bhp. Maybe they are saving the big engine for the SS version.
