All 124 examples of the UK-specification Fiat 124 Anniversary Edition have now been sold with orders for the standard models building steadily. Commenting on the success of the special edition model, Head of Brand, Fiat UK, Sebastiano Fedrigo said: “The interest in Fiat’s re-born roadster has been incredible and that’s before most people have even seen the car in the metal. Once the Fiat 125 Spider hits the streets and showrooms, even more people will begin to fall for its style and presence and once they drive it, they will be hooked.”
The Fiat 124 Spider blends together classic Italian styling with an authentic roadster driving experience to a whole new generation of enthusiasts. The vehicle is powered by Fiat’s infamous 1.4-litre MultiAir turbo-charged four-cylinder engine which is capable of accelerating to 62mph in just 7.5 seconds and has a top speed of 134mph.
