After it unveiled the 124 Spider during this year Detroit Motor Show, Fiat knew it has to come with something real special on its home turf. The first European major automotive event, Geneva Motor Show, saw the unveiling of the Abarth 124 Spider, the performance version of the roadster. The car will be available in September with prices starting from €40,000 for all Europe.

The Abarth 124 spider is equipped with a sports mechanical Limited-Slip differential as standard to secure drive and traction.

The use of special materials have contained the weight to just 1,060 kilograms, which results in a weight-to-power ratio of 6.2 kg/HP, the best in its category, and perfect 50/50 weight distribution.

The suspension of the 124 spider has a high double-wishbone layout in front and a five-link set up in the rear. Steering uses a dual pinion electric power assist system. Also the “Abarth by Bilstein” dampers, together with stiffened anti-roll bars, provide handling. The Brembo braking system, with aluminium front callipers, guarantees resistance to brake fade.

The Abarth 124 spider is equipped with a four-cylinder 1.4-litre MultiAir Turbo engine. It delivers 170 HP (about 124 HP per litre) and 250 Nm of torque. It has a top speed of 230 km/h and goes from 0 to 100 km/h in 6.8-seconds. Furthermore, the sound comes from the Record Monza exhaust, equipped as standard.

The spider is available with a six-speed manual or the automatic Sequenziale Sportivo gearbox. The new 124 Spider lets the driver disengage the electronic controls.
