Fiat Chrysler Australia has announced the pricing for the Abarth 124 Spider, which is hitting local showrooms in October.
The drop-top will kick-off from $41,990 plus-on roads for the six-speed manual, with the six-speed automatic commanding an additional $2,000.
However, to sweeten the deal even further, the Abarth 124 Spider will be offered at a drive-away price of $43,500 for the six-speed manual, and $45,500 drive-away for the 6-speed auto.
To celebrate the return of the iconic nameplate, Fiat has also introduced 100 commemorative Launch Editions at no extra costs. They get special contrasting bumper inserts, mirror caps and tow-hook covers, while each will be stamped with a special “1 of 100” metal plague.
The Abarth 124 Spider is powered by a Fiat 1.4-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol producing 125kW @ 5,500rpm and 250Nm @ 2,500rpm. Power is sent to the rear wheels via a mechanical limited-slip differential.
It arrives with sports suspension, a Sport Mode selector, Brembo brakes and Bilstein shock absorbers, along with leather and Alcantara sports seats. The 124 Spider is also equipped with a chrome quad-tip sports exhaust as standard.
“The Abarth 124 Spider is not just an amazing performance vehicle, but the return of one of the world’s most iconic nameplates to Australian roads,” says FCA Australia President and CEO, Steve Zanlunghi.
“And we’re thrilled to reveal today that the most powerful vehicle in its class will offer incredible value in Australia, regardless of whether it’s in the performance-packed Abarth 124 Spider or the commemorative Launch Editions.”
The Abarth 124 Spider will be on sale in all Australian dealerships from Friday the 7th of October.
