New Little Brother to the GranTurismo

Just picked up this Fiat 124 Spider Abarth. It has the Monza Record Exhaust and the Brembo brake package. I drove one with the Recaro seat option, but found them uncomfortable, so I stuck with the Abarth sport seats, which fit me quite well. Not a long distance cruiser, but It's a blast on the tight mountain roads. For those that are not familiar with the 124, it has a Mazda MX5 chassis, tranny, electronics and much of the interior (assembled in Japan on the same line as the MX5), but has Italian bodywork, suspension and motor (1.4 liter turbo/intercooled single overhead cam inline 4 - 164 bhp and 184 lbs./ft. torque w/ 2436 lbs. curb weight). The sport button (available only on the Abarth) makes a huge difference in throttle response. The lines are personal preference, but I prefer the 124 over the MX5 - it has a far more classic roadster look when compared to the very modern looking MX5.

I also prefer the looks of the Fiat 124 over the MX5, especially in Abarth trim. Enjoy!!

Bravo ! Fun, nice looking car. Nostalgia kicks in for me, my first car was a ( 1971 ) Fiat 124 coupe, and I still have very fond memories of it .
