Abarth tuning company is very selective when dealing with special customizations, and one of the company`s preferred carmakers is Fiat. In this case, we are looking at a standout kit carried out on the Fiat 124 Spider.
You can instantly recognize an Abarth product, and this one seen here is no ordinary thing, especially from a visual standpoint. The Abarth 124 Spider is now available in the United Kingdom in both manual as well as in automatic. The manual is set at £29,565, while the automatic costs £31,605.
The unique look and personality is given by the special colors, like the “Turini 1975 White”, “Costa Brava 1972 Red”, metallic “Isola d`Elba 1974 Blue”, “Portogallo 1974 Grey” and “San Marino 1972 Black”.
Inside, the cabin is also tweaked with a lot of interesting gizmos as standard, like climate control system, electrically-folding door mirrors, cruise control, or the infotainment system with selector dial on the center console.
Other features also include a 7-inch color display, MP3 player, AUX input, Bluetooth connectivity, DAB digital player and so on.
Under the hood, the Abarth 124 Spider is more powerful than the standard version from Fiat. We are looking here at a 1.4-liter TJet engine, with 200 horsepower, in this case, the tuner adding 30 horsepower. The car achieves a sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in 6.8 seconds, while the topping stands at 143 km/h.
As for the two transmissions, the manual is equipped with a short-shift six-speed configuration, while the automatic received the Sequenziale Sportivo. Other bits that ensure the car`s performance refer to the Record Monza exhaust system as well as the three-gauge instrument binnacle with a large central rev counter, speedometer on the right or a data display and the left.
