Fiat 124 spider Abarth aims at sweeping a new generation of enthusiasts off their feet with its performance and technical DNA. The model combines the authentic roadster experience packed with thrills, technology, safety with a touch of unmistakable Italian design.

The new Fiat 124 spider Abarth guarantees all the thrills and fun that only a real spider can offer. Developed with the Abarth Racing team, the car perfectly embodies the leading values of the brand: performance, artisan craft, technical excellence. This is a car designed to put the smile back on the faces of those lucky enough to drive it.

For outstanding dynamic performance, Fiat 124 spider Abarth fits a mechanical self-locking differential as standard equipment. The weight is concentrated between the axles and the engine is installed behind the front axle to guarantee optimal agility and superior driving feel.

Sophisticated mechanics and the use of special materials have been used to contain the weight to just 1060 kilograms, which results in a weight-to-power ratio of 6.2 kg/HP, the best in its category. Furthermore, the optimal weight distribution guarantees excellent feedback and agility.

The suspension of the 124 spider features high double wishbone suspension on the front and a five-arm multi-link on the rear. The set-up is calibrated specifically to increase stability on corners and for compression braking. Steering feedback is optimised by adopting a specific sports calibration of the power steering system.

Under the bonnet is a powerful, ultra-reliable 1.4 litre four-cylinder turbocharged engine with MultiAir technology. It delivers 170 HP (that is about 124 HP per litre) and 250 Nm of torque: it has a top speed of 232 km/h and goes from 0 to 100 km/h in 6.8 seconds.

What is more, the engine sound is a fundamental element of all Abarth cars, and standard equipment includes the Record Monza exhaust with dual mode system capable of modifying the path of the exhaust gas according to engine rpm and generating a satisfying, deep sound.

The spider is available with a six-speed manual or an automatic Esseesse Sports Sequential gearbox.

The spider is available with a six-speed manual or an automatic Esseesse Sports Sequential gearbox. The first is characterised by quick and accurate shifting with a short-stroke direct lever.

The Esseesse Sports Sequential gearbox, on the other hand, is the result of careful tuning to exploit all the engine torque and conveys genuine racing sensations. Shifting is very fast using either the stick on the tunnel or the steering wheel paddles.

Active and passive safety

The new Abarth 124 spider is decked out with a host of state-of-the-art active and passive safety devices. In addition to ABS, standard equipment includes EBD, for adjusting front and rear axle brake force distribution so as to optimise braking distances and guarantee control in all load conditions of the car. Of course, also standard is ESC, for optimal control in all driving conditions, in particular in critical situations, in presence of snow, ice or poor road surfaces.

The ESC applies selective braking and acts on the accelerator to take the car back on line if a difference between the driver’s action on the steering wheel and trajectory is detected. All these devices can be completely deactivated for driving on the race track allowing the driver to exploit the outstanding balancing and dynamic features of Abarth 124 spider to the max and enjoy an unadulterated and direct driving feeling.

The three-point seat belts fit Constant-Force Retractors (CFR) to control the degree of force applied by the belt and then gradually release it in controlled manner. On demand, the Visibility Plus pack includes full-LED self-levelling adaptive headlights with automatic orientation to guarantee the best driving comfort also in poor visibility conditions. These are combined with rain sensor, dusk sensor and parking sensors.
