The reborn 124 Spider is inspired by a Fiat classic, taking the same design cues and laying them onto a thoroughly modern chassis.
Designed as an open-topped roadster from the off, its strong rear haunches, rounded headlights and bonnet profiling all mimic the 1966 original.
Every 124 Spider sits on powerful-looking alloy wheels, with dual steel exhaust tips. Lusso models add premium silver details to the windscreen frame and roll bar covers, plus larger wheels.
Settle into the comfortable two-seater cabin and you’re cosseted by beautifully-built surroundings, with a standard leather steering wheel and standard air conditioning (or climate control) when taking the roof down isn’t enough to keep you cool. Choose the Lusso Plus trim for sumptuous leather upholstery.
The low, minimalist dashboard is decorated with luxurious Piano Black inserts on the Lusso trim and above. The compact boot is perfect for a couple of weekend bags at 140 litres, with a lockable storage console between the seats for keeping essentials protected.
Under the long, low bonnet sits the latest 1.4-litre turbo charged MultiAir engine. Boasting 138bhp, it propels the lightweight 124 Spider to 60mph in just 7.5 seconds, while achieving an impressive 44mpg.
It’s a characterful unit with a sonorous roar, the perfect soundtrack as you thread along twisting B-roads. The long wheelbase delivers a settled, comfortable ride and reduces the centre of gravity, ensuring composed, flat cornering. And when you want to settle into a long motorway trip, it’s the perfect, grown-up companion.
Every 124 Spider comes with Bluetooth technology, USB and AUX-in input so you can take calls, charge your phone and listen to your favourite tunes on the go. Upgrade to the Lusso trim and this adds a seven-inch touchscreen system with integrated DAB digital radio and satellite navigation.
Your 124 Spider comes with twin front and side airbags, roll bars, electronic stability control, a tyre pressure monitoring system and cruise control. This takes the strain out of long journeys, and a rear parking camera (standard on Lusso trim and above) makes parking easier once you reach your destination.
