Hi there
The 124 Spider is now available in France,
I went to see it, try it..and I order it directly...
The dealer had only one available, the demo car, so I will have to wait till September to get it...
So still time to read and learn everything about it on the forum

It will be a black one, lusso plus

Speaking of France, I would love to see a 124 Abarth in French Blue like a R8 Gordini Rally car from the old days.



There is a strong history of Italian cars driven by the French doing very well in Rally Racing.

The Alfa GTV6 driven by a Frenchman won the world rally championship 4 years in a row in the Group A division, often beating most of the the Group B cars! Group A was a division for cars that were actual production cars with some reasonable mods. Group B was an all out division, like F1 cars for rally racing.




So, I have pretty good reasons for wanting to see a French Blue 124.

Fortunately we live in the age of wraps so getting that color on a 124 will be super easy, much easier than back in the day when you had to make the $10,000 permanent decision to paint the whole car that color.

That GTV6 looks like a beast :|
It was a beast. Not only did it win WRC Group A 4 years in a row (the 5th year was won by a 4 door version of the same car), it won the European and British Touring Car Championships several years as well. It was a dominant car, but by the late 80's became obsolete.

That's a really good point.

Just changed the mirrors cover, now in silver....
The silver mirrors on a black car look stunning. Perfect choice!

Did you do it yourself or have them installed? I'm going to have my red caps professionally installed. A shop told me that the clips break easily.
