The hotly anticipated Abarth 124 Spider has been revealed at this week’s Geneva motor show, alongside the Abarth 124 Rally prototype.
Abarth’s take on the Fiat 124 Spider features a revised version of that car’s 1.4-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine. In the Abarth, the 1.4-litre motor generates 127kW of power and 250Nm of torque.
Drive is sent to the rear wheels via a standard limited-slip differential, and either a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic. The Abarth 124 Spider has a claimed 0-100km/h time of 6.8 seconds and a top speed of 230km/h.
In Europe the regular Fiat 124 Spider has a 1.4-litre rated at 104kW of power and 240Nm of torque, and requires 7.5 seconds for the 0-100km/h dash and has a top speed of just 215km/h.
Meanwhile, the North American Fiat 124 Spider isn’t far off the Abarth’s numbers, with 119kW and 250Nm at its beck and call.
