Fiat is all set to showcase the Abarth version of the 124 Spider at the Geneva Motor Show with the launch of a new GT special edition which will feature a removable carbon fibre hardtop. The coupé and roadster will be draped in an Alpi Orientali Grey livery and it goes well with the front spoiler as also the mirror caps which sport a special gun metal colour.
The Abarth 124 Spider and GT will come with a 17-inch OZ Ultra-Light alloy rims, which are about three kilograms lighter than standard wheels and we are certain that it will help improve the handling as also bring in a great design element to the car. The matte black bonnet treatment is available on demand and of course this is for those who want that classic Abarth 124 Rally look. The carbon fibre rear spoiler and hard top are also available on demand.
The carbon fibre hard top, lined on the inside, has a large rear window and efficient defroster to clear it in less than three minutes. The hard top weighs just 16 kilograms and contributes to improving the compactness and overall torsional rigidity of the car. It guarantees thermal insulation and soundproofing, while ensuring good rear view.
The Abarth 124 GT comes with a 1.4-litre, four-cylinder MultiAir turbo engine which delivers 168 bhp and 250 Nm of torque. It has a top speed of 232 kmph and goes from 0 to 100 km/h in 6.8 seconds. It is available with a six-speed manual or automatic Sports Sequential Esseesse gearbox.
