The Mini is going to have a pretty significant advantage in that department when it comes to autocross. The Abarth would need one hell of a driver to overcome that.

Agreed. I'm not going to argue that the Mini is not a better performing car when it comes to pure numbers. However, I really like driving the Abarth a lot more. It's a lot more fun to me, and I like the experience and feel of the vehicle better. Hard to explain...but in the famous words of Jeremy Clarkson, it's better because it's worse.
