The Abarth 124 Spider has been unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show. The Abarth Spider is a nimble new roadster that has been tuned by the Italian automaker’s performance division. The Abarth version is based on the Fiat model. The Abarth 124 Spider competes with the likes of the Mazda MX-5 Miata and the Fiat 124 Spider on which it is based.
The Abarth Version has some serious performance upgrades over the Fiat Spider. There is a 1.4 liter turbo charged 4-cylinder engine under the hood that generates 170hp and 249Nm of torque. There is a choice of a 6-speed manual or automatic transmission. The 124 Spider can hit the 0-100kmph mark in 6.8 seconds and has a top speed of 230kmph.
The Abarth 124 Spider also gets Brembo brakes, Bilstein dampers and a Record Monza exhaust. The Abarth has an electrically assisted steering with a proper mechanical limited slip differential. There is a sport mode as well. The electronic driving assists can be turned off if you want them to not play spoilsport when driving around on the track.
The Abarth 124 Spider has a variety of visual upgrades as well. There is a full aero kit, larger air intake vents, 17-inch alloys and a black hood that doesn’t glare as much. The interior is done in Alcantara. There is a small-diameter steering wheel, short gear lever and aluminum pedals.
There is a rally version that is available as well. The Abarth 124 Rally is built to FIA R-GT regulations. It gets a 1.8 liter engine that is mounted further back and generates 300hp. The rally version also gets a fixed roof, roll cage and many other competition-spec upgrades.
The Abarth 124 Spider will be available in September this year in Europe with prices starting from €40,000. Check out our gallery of the Abarth 124 Spider and the Rally spec version.
