Separated at Birth: Fiat 500 Abarth and Mini Countryman JCW

So what are the odds of two people showing up with the exact same new mohawk on the same day in the office? This is exactly what happened to the Fiat 500 Abarth and Mini Countryman JCW: 

Maybe both manufacturers use the same market research agency that told them black with red stripes is in right now? The two cars are also very similar in concept: small, sporty, top of the line for the model. I totally dig the color scheme on the Abarth and I'm still hoping that supersexy model wearing matching color scheme comes with the car! Yes, "I'll never forget the first time I saw her!"

The Countryman, though? It looks to me like something a plumber would buy. So underneath that same paint scheme, you have one car that is a hoot to drive and one that is a hoot to... carry all your plumbing supplies in.
