The new Abarth 124 spider was unveiled at the 2016 Geneva International Motor Show. The model is characterised by its authentic roadster experience packed with thrills, technology, safety and a drop of Italian design. For excellent dynamism, the Abarth 124 spider is equipped with a sports mechanical Limited-Slip differential as standard to assure drive and traction in the most critical situations and provide incomparable dynamic behaviour.
The exterior features an excellent mechanical layout of the car, a key element to achieve the perfect proportions for a sport car: a long bonnet that emphasises on the importance of the engine and the powerful attitude of the car, reduced overhangs to accentuate its agile attitude, a cabin close to the rear axle to let the driver feel the road. Horizontal lines from the front stretches to join with the rear line near the rear light cluster, which is an unmistakable reference to the classic 124 spider. To underline the bold, technical inclination of the car, the brand added 17-inch alloy wheels and windscreen surround and roll bars in “Forgiato Grey” finish. The exclusive LED headlights and rear lights add expressiveness to the car, both during the day and at night.
The interior features supportive and comfortable leather seats and controls that are perfectly in tune with the car’s sporty setup: the position of the aluminium pedal board, the small-diameter steering wheel, the short gear lever and the start button on the dashboard, all contributing to a sporty driving experience.
When it comes to safety, the model comes with the best passive safety devices: ABS, EBD (adjusts front and rear brake force distribution and to optimise braking distances and control in all load conditions of the car) and ESC (increased control in all driving conditions). Three-point seat belt engages Constant-Force Retractors to control the degree of force applied by the belt and then gradually release it in controlled manner.
The model will be available in five body colours: special solid “Turini 1975 White” and “Costa Brava 1972 Red”, metallic “Isola d’Elba 1974 Blue”, “Portogallo 1974 Grey”, and “San Marino 1972 Black”. The engine is a powerful, reliable four-cylinder 1.4-litre MultiAir Turbo that delivers 170 hp and 250 Nm of torque.
