Customers can order the 2017 Fiat 124 Spider Elaborazione Abarth with a six-speed manual transmission or with an automatic with paddle shifters and a Sport mode.
Handling is ensured by a sports suspension with Bilstein shocks and recalibrated springs. The 17-inch alloy wheels cover a set of mono-block aluminum calipers with four pistons each, ensuring optimum braking performance for the Abarth-tuned roadster.
Concerning design, the new version of the Italian roadster comes with a distinctive look for the front and rear fascias, as well as Gun Metal accents, and 17-inch aluminum wheels finished in the same shade. Clients can order a hand-painted hood stripe for a one-of-a-kind appearance.
The interior of this car comes with the famous scorpion badge, red stitching, a unique instrument cluster, aluminum sport pedals, and individual gear shift knob. Select colors are available for the upholstery, and some of the combinations are not offered in the standard model.
Naturally, you are probably wondering why there is an “Elaborazione” in the name of this car. As some of you know, Fiat used to make a model called 124 back in the late 1960s and early 1970s. That model was developed in several body styles, and it was even raced in the European Rally Championship. The race car that was used in the rally bared the “Elaborazione Abarth” name, hence the choice of putting these names together for the new Italian roadster.
The 2017 Fiat 124 Spider Elaborazione Abarth will be available in FCA showrooms this summer, and pricing information will be published when the model nears its launch date.
