Abarth pours its crazy sauce on the Miata-based FIAT 124 Spider. It packs a 170hp turbo 4, chassis reinforcements, a limited-slip diff, Brembo brakes, Bilstein dampers, an awesome exhaust note, and an anti-glare black hood, all without losing its 50/50 weight balance.
Sharing its bones with the Mazda MX-5 Miata, the 124 Spyder pays homage to FIAT’s roadster heritage. The Miata drives great, and FIAT’s styling looks great, so we have no complaints here. An added bonus: its 1.4L turbo 4 makes 24% more torque than Mazda’s engine.
