The 2017 Fiat 124 Abarth Spider is the hottest and fastest Fiat 124 you can buy. It also sounds the best. Unlike the run-of-the-mill Fiat 124 Spider, the Abarth has a quad exhaust that makes the most of the 1.4-liter turbo’s 164 horsepower.
Recently, Roman had the opportunity to drive and review the new 2017 Fiat 124 in San Diego, California. During that same press drive program, Fiat was kind enough to setup an Autocross course that featured the 2017 Fiat 124 Abarth Spider.
In this TFLcar video, you can be one of the first to hear what the 2017 Fiat 124 Abarth Spider sounds like at full rev.
Keep in mind that the 2017 Fiat 124 Abarth Spider is built at the same plant as Mazda’s new MX-5 in Japan. While the two cars share most components, the MX-5 has a 2.0L SKYACTIV normally aspirated 4-cylinder engine while the 2017 Fiat 124 Abarth Spider shares the 1.4L turbocharged four from the current Fiat 500 Abarth.
