Introducing the 2017 Fiat 124 Spider Elaborazione Abarth
April 6, 2016
The new 2017 Fiat 124 Spider Elaborazione Abarth features include rear-wheel drive, a sophisticated suspension and a four-cylinder turbocharged MultiAir 1.4 Turbo engine with 160 horsepower that is available with a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic gearbox with paddle shift.
The Elaborazione Abarth-exclusive Sport Mode changes the calibrations of the engine, automatic transmission, electric power steering and dynamic stability control system to ensure a sporty, responsive and performance-oriented driving experience.
A mechanical limited slip differential, featuring a low-torque bias ratio, provides improved traction and handling, as well as improved launch performance and power delivery during cornering.
The Elaborazione Abarth’s sport suspension includes mono-tube Bilstein front and rear shock absorbers for increased traction and more precise handling. The available Brembo braking system with 17-inch alloy wheels offers monoblock aluminum calipers with four pistons, allowing for improved braking.
With a streamlined silhouette and a stretched bonnet, the Fiat 124 Spider Elaborazione Abarth has an aggressive appearance, with unique front and rear fascia, black side sills, 17-inch Gun Metal aluminum wheels and a sport-tuned, chrome quad-tip exhaust with a unique exhaust sound, according to Fiat. The Gun Metal header, mirror cover and roll bar complement five available paint colors: White Clear Coat, Red Clear Coat, Jet Black Metallic, Gray Metallic and tri-coat Crystal White Pearl.
The interior design includes red stitching, including on the leather-wrapped steering wheel, wrapped instrument cluster hood, lower instrument panel and parking brake. A matte black instrument panel bezel, unique instrument cluster, aluminum-accented sport pedals and unique gear shift knob help to differentiate the Elaborazione Abarth model, according to Fiat.
