Pricing and specification for the all-new Abarth 124 Spider have been announced ahead of its stunning arrival to the UK this summer – and with a starting price of £29,565 OTR it represents outstanding value for money.
The new two-seater roadster marks the return of the ‘spider badge’, and is the natural heir of the original model launched back in 1972. The 2016 car offers a desirable blend of performance, technology and of course iconic Italian style – key factors of a very successful line-up.
Powered by a mighty four-cylinder 1.4-litre MultiAir Turbo engine, the new spider delivers 170 hp and 250 Nm of torque. Its top speed is an impressive 143mph and it can accelerate from 0-62mph in a swift 6.8 seconds. Not forgetting what really matters to Abarth, the Record Monza exhaust comes as standard giving the vehicle a unique growl.
The 124 Spider is available with a six-speed manual or the automatic Sequenziale Sportivo gearbox. The manual provides a quick and accurate shifting with short-throw, direct lever, while the Sequenziale Sportivo gearbox, with steering wheel-mounted paddle shift, exploits all off the engine’s torque.
Each car is specially tested and certified by an experienced Abarth technician who applies a metal plaque showing the sequential number of each car – Unique number, unique customer.
