Ready to catapult, Fiat 124 Abarth Spider‘s capable engine and excellent transmission allows it to accelerate to 62 mph in 6.8 seconds reaching a top speed of 143 mph without working up a sweat.
Although it doesn’t dust its competitors it can however, maintain a desirable clip keeping up very well with the rest of the pack while delivering very respectable, enjoyable performance and smooth ride for its price.
This car is a hybrid combination of Fiat’s famous Italian styling and turbocharged engine melded with equally famous Japanese engineering from the folks who make the fourth-generation Mazda MX-5 Miata sports car its only true competitor in its class, an awesome mix.
The car pictured is one exhibited on Crescent Street that I saw last year during the annual Montreal Grand Prix weekend.
