Online registration opens for highly anticipated Italian convertible

The Abarth 124 Spider now has its own dedicated website and is inviting Australians to register their interest in the convertible sports car that will arrive towards the end of 2016. 

While details on pricing and specs are yet to be released, the site contains video showcasing the 124 and its history. 

The new Mazda MX-5-based 124 Spider has already had an interesting history – originally envisioned to be an Alfa Romeo, before being adopted by parent company Fiat. 

Australia has decided to take the version of Fiat’s performance brand Abarth, with the notable expectation that the Italian model will cost more than its Japanese twin. 

The Abarth version does come with a more powerful engine – a 1.4-litre turbocharged four-cylinder with 125kW and 250Nm. That compares with the bigger-engined Mazda MX-5; a 2.0-litre priced between $34,490 and $41,550, and offering 118kW and 200Nm. 

You can read more about the Abarth 124 spider at their official website.
