Almost 50 years since its renowned predecessor launched, the new Fiat 124 Spider was unveiled to an expectant audience at the 2015 Los Angeles Motor Show in November 2015. The world-famous motor show is always a glamorous occasion, where the most prestigious car manufacturers showcase their new models and latest concepts.
The new 124 Spider takes design cues from its Italian heritage and gives them an update, creating a classic aesthetic with a contemporary edge. Thanks to a powerful turbocharged engine and sophisticated suspension, the Spider delivers an exhilarating drive.
Beneath the bonnet, a 1.4-litre MultiAir turbo engine develops 140bhp and 240Nm of torque, driving the rear wheels via a six-speed manual transmission. The balanced weight distribution results in agile handling characteristics and a responsive feel.
This elegant two-seat roadster has a folding fabric roof and premium upholstery, with subtle detailing to the cockpit which adds a touch of class. It is sporty too – with lightweight materials and an aerodynamic integrated rear spoiler to optimise the Spider’s thrilling performance.
While the styling may be nostalgic, the technology in the cabin is thoroughly modern. Advanced infotainment features comes as standard, and the options list includes a Bose premium sound system and Bluetooth® app integration.
The new Fiat 124 Spider will arrive in Johnsons showrooms in the second half of 2016. Get in touch with your nearest dealership to register your interest in this keenly anticipated new model.
