I don't know about you guys, but I have been eagerly anticipating the Fiat Abarth 124 Spider. My suspicions were correct -- the Abarth 124 is way cooler than the normal 124 Spider.



This performance version of the 124 Spider debuted today at the Geneva Motor Show in its European specifications. Horsepower has been increased to 170 and the quad exhaust from the Abarth 500 Record Monza is being used as well. The US version of the Abarth 124 Spider is likely to come with even more power.

The chassis has been augmented with Bilstein shocks, Abarth springs, and a limited-slip differential that comes standard. The hood and trunk lid come in matte black (though you can opt out if you want to).

How much horsepower are you hoping for in the US version?

I think that the red looks much better than the white. The little red spots on the white version look strange. Like they were stuck on afterward.

I'm actually impressed with what they did with the color scheme's. If someone told me there's a mazda based off the same platform... i'd be surprised. Almost seems like a whole different beast here.

That's what they wanted you to think. They did do a great job. And since it's a Mazda, I don't have to worry about it being a piece of junk. best thing Fiat has done in a long time.

This is my first post here. I am super excited about the Abarth 124 and I am getting one for sure.
