"The model combines the authentic experience of a roadster full of emotion, technology and safety features with a touch of undeniable Italian design", as Abarth defines the 124 Spider, which seeks to surprise a new generation of enthusiasts with its performance and its Technological DNA.
The new Abarth 124 Spider guarantees all the excitement and fun that only a true Spider can offer. Developed together with the Abarth Racing team, the car represents the most important values of the brand: performance, craftsmanship, technical excellence. This car is designed to put a smile on the lips of those who are lucky enough to drive it.
For outstanding dynamic performance, it features a limited-slip differential as standard equipment. Weight is concentrated between the axles and the engine is mounted behind the front axle, ensuring unmatched agility and a superior driving experience.
Its sophisticated mechanics and the use of special materials have allowed the weight to be kept to just 1.060 kg, resulting in a power-to-weight ratio of 6,2 kg / hp, the best in its category. In addition, the perfect weight distribution ensures excellent response and agility.
The 124 Spider's suspension features a double wishbone overlay suspension at the front and a five-link multilink independent at the rear. The system is specifically calibrated to increase cornering stability and for brake compression. Steering response is optimized thanks to the adoption of a sport calibration of the power steering system.
Under the hood is a powerful, highly reliable 1.4 turbocharged 4-cylinder engine featuring MultiAir technology. The engine develops a power of 170 hp (approximately 124 hp per liter) and a torque of 250 Nm: with a top speed of 232 km / h and an acceleration from 0 to 100 km / h in 6,8 seconds.
In addition, since the sound of the engine is a fundamental element of all Abarth cars, the standard equipment includes the Record Monza dual-mode exhaust system, capable of modifying the path of the exhaust gases based on the engine rpm, generating a wonderful bass sound.
The Spider is available with a six-speed manual transmission or with an Esseesse sport sequential automatic gearbox.
