Geneva Auto Show Announces Release of the Abarth 124 Spider
Friday, March 04, 2016
The new Abarth 124 Spider just made its first appearance at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show. The Abarth124 Spider is based on the 2017 Fiat 124 model that is slated to be re-introduced in the fall of 2016. Powered by a 1.4 liter turbo four-cylinder, generating the same 184 pound-feet of force and a 170 horsepower, which is an increase for over the base model. Consumers still have the ability to pick between the six-speed manual and automatic transmission; both of the options come with Brembo brakes, Bilstein dampers, and a Record Monza exhaust.
The Abarth has electric steering, but has a proper mechanical slip differential, and there is a “Sport” button that allows for manual steering. The Abarth’s 0-62mph time was documented at 6.8 seconds and has a top speed at 143 mph. Although the specs that we have are currently just for the European model; if and when the Abarth Spider makes its way to the Landmark Fiat in Atlanta, the specs should be very similar.
The vehicles that debuted at the Geneva Auto Show were decked out by the technicians at Mirafiori, and they did not cut corners when it came to equipping the Abarth with visual enhancements. The Abarth has a full aero kit, larger air vents, 17-inch alloys, a black hood to cut down on glare, small-diameter steering-wheel, short gear lever, and aluminum pedals.
The Abarth 124 Rally is built to FIA R-GT regulations. The 1.4-liter engine was changed out for the 1.8-liter engine. Not only did the engine get an upgrade, but it was moved further back and is producing an extraordinary 300 horsepower. The 124 Rally also has a fixed rood, full roll cage, and a long list of many amazing spec upgrades.
Jim Butler Auto Group is excited for the Abarth 124 Spider to make its way to the States. It will make a wonderful addition to the Fiat model lineup
