Fiat 124 Spider Abarth

A couple of hours ago, information appeared that the Italian car company Fiat plans to present a new version of its roadster 124 Spider Abarth in a couple of days. Note that this is a high-performance version from the Abarth division.

The Fiat 124 Spider is a rear-wheel-drive roadster with a front-mounted engine, and the word Abarth in the name of this car means that it’s a high-performance model. The press service of the automaker released a short video clip, which shows a new version of this roadster. Video is a teaser and as befits such videos, on it the car is shown only partially. Throughout the roller, we are offered to listen to the sound of the exhaust, which should be said very well.

Judging by the inscription at the rear of the car, the Italian brand is going to present a high-performance version of 124 Spider Abarth. It is known that the novelty will be positioned as a car of the 2019 model year.

Unfortunately, at the moment, details about the roadster are not available. However, thanks to insiders, we know that that juicy sound of exhaust, which sounds all through the published video creates a 1.4-liter gasoline power unit with a turbo. Currently, this engine can produce a maximum of 164 horsepower and 250 Nm of torque. There is information that the “charged” version of Abarth will be able to boast a figure of 177 hp.

Finally we want to note that the new version of the Japanese roadster Mazda MX-5 RF, on the basis of which the Italian model was created, was presented just over a month ago in the USA. The novelty received an additional 26 hp power and 4 Nm torque. The Mazda MX-5 RF is equipped with a 2.0-liter engine of the SkyActiv family, whose power is 181 hp, and the maximum torque is 204 Nm.

Not so long ago, we wrote that the Italian Fiat 500X received new engines.
