Fiat 124 Spider Returns

Posted by: Xavier Kwan onJuly 4th, 2016


Fiat’s 124 Spider made it’s mark in automotive history during it’s original production run between 1968 to 1985. Although not known to be the most reliable cars out there, the convertible sport car was light and fun. Now after taking a 30 year break, the 124 Spider is making it’s return. The first run of cars produced out of Mazda’s Hiroshima plant in Japan is due to hit dealerships by next week.

The 124 Spider shares it’s platform with Mazda’s MX-5. However, where the Mazda uses a 2.0L four cylinder engine naturally aspirated engine, the Fiat will be using a smaller 1.4L turbocharged engine that pumps out 160hp and 184lb/ft of torque. That’s plenty power to move the small convertible around, but we should expect that an Abarth version will follow soon.
