The Fiat Abarth 124 Spider is the MX-5 Mazda radical dare not make

The Mazda MX-5 we love. It is a convertible excellent dynamic balance, with a propeller of 1.5 liters and 130 horsepower. In the United States it is available with a naturally aspirated 2.0-liter and 160 hp. More than enough weight figures for just a ton, but it is not really a radical car. As you know, Fiat 124 Spider launch based on the MX-5 . And it seems to be the conferring Abarth sportiness high flying the MX-5, the Mazda does not dare to print your Miata.

Abarth does not want his role is limited to produce versions warm origin Fiat models.

The standard Fiat 124 Spider will be similar to the Mazda MX-5 oriented sportsmanship but without excess and without losing comfort. At first, aesthetics imitate the classic ’70s, but without losing a modern twist. I think of the same look retrochic the Fiat 500, applied to a sports roadster. This sport will be equipped with gasoline engines Fiat, presumably small 1.4 T-Jet with outputs of between 120 hp and 170 hp . You can not even know what powers will end the roadster.

Abarth will produce a very spicy version Fiat 124 Spider , a sports version goes where Mazda dare not go. Abarth truly wants to be a sports brand, not only produce “warm” versions of Fiat vehicles. Biposto the Abarth 180 hp two-seater it is the first in a line of more radical car. The Abarth 124 Spider used to it 1.75 TBi engine with at least 200 hp power.

This engine is already used in the Alfa Romeo 4C and the Alfa Romeo Giulietta Quadrifoglio Verde, and the 124 Spider will have a slightly lower power. Abarth not walk with nonsense and putting them will be quite extreme, with few concessions to luxury. Weighing around a tonne would do the 0-100 km / h in about five seconds . Aesthetically, it will differ from other 124 Spyder with two color scheme – red and white -. Abarth, as well as some new wheels and a more aggressive aerodynamics
