After we found out the prices for the new Fiat 124 Spider on the UK market, Abarth sporty division makes the same move. The Scorpion announced the price of its new 124 Spider in UK, a tag that stands at £29,565.
The new Abarth 124 spider marks the return of the ‘spider’ badge, and is the natural heir of the original model launched in 1972. The 2016 car is equipped with a four-cylinder 1.4-litre MultiAir Turbo engine, that delivers 170 hp and 250 Nm of torque. With a top speed of 143 mph the car can go from 0 to 62 mph in 6.8 seconds. Furthermore, as the sound of the engine really matters in an Abarth, the Record Monza exhaust comes as standard.
The spider is available with a six-speed manual or the automatic Sequenziale Sportivo gearbox.
Each car is tested and certified by an Abarth technician who applies a metal plaque showing the sequential number of each car to certify the exclusiveness of the Abarth 124 spider.
Five body colours are available, emphasising sport and heritage: special solid "Turini 1975 White” and "Costa Brava 1972 Red", metallic "Isola d’Elba 1974 Blue", "Portogallo 1974 Grey" and "San Marino 1972 Black".
Standard equipment includes climate control system, cruise control, adjustable, electrically-folding door mirrors, and an infotainment system with ergonomic, selector dial on the centre console. The system features a 7-inch colour display, DAB digital tuner, MP3 player, two USB ports, AUX input, and Bluetooth connectivity.
