The Fiat 124 Spider might be a new vehicle on the surface, having actually initially been presented at the 2015 L.a Automobile Show. Yet there's more to the lightweight two-door roadster compared to what satisfies the eye. For example, the 124 Crawler could consider the Mazda MX-5 Miata as a direct rival, however the two supposed competitors have a lot more in common than people assume, consisting of the fact that they share the very same supports. Here's an additional unusual reality concerning the 124 Spider: it wasn't intended to exist. Yep, the framework that led to the development of the 124 Crawler was intended to be for an Alfa Romeo roadster. Yet FCA, owners of both Fiat and Alfa Romeo, eventually chose to provide it to the Fiat. Therefore, the Fiat 124 Spider was birthed.

Developed to celebrate the launch of the initial, Pininfarina-designed 124 Spider that brushed up lots of fanatics off their feet back in 1981, the 124 Spider Europa obtains its reasonable share of distinct functions, not the least of which is a body surface that Fiat calls the "utmost color that determines Italian stylish two-seaters." The special edition roadster likewise obtains parts from Mopar and also a multitude of unique touches that have actually been thrown in to highlight the car's commemorative scandal sheet status.

The connections to exclusivity typically aren't conveniently noticeable when you consider the Fiat 124 Crawler Europa. However the devil is in the information, as well as you need to look carefully to observe exactly what these functions are. Ironically, though, one of the roadster's even more popular styling qualities is right before our eyes. I did state previously that the car comes with a striking body surface, right? Well, Fiat calls it Passione Red, which is just an elegant name for a red hue infused with a little Italian flavor. The various other outside attributes included in the 124 Crawler Europa consist of silver rear view mirror caps as well as a brand-new collection of 17-inch, four-spoke alloy wheels that were created by Dodge's internal efficiency division Mopar.

The cars and truck's supposed special edition features typically aren't going to blow any person out of the water. Actually, they really don't amount to much aside from the numbered plaque. The good news below is that Fiat saved no cost in pounding the 124 Crawler Europa with a ton of equipment. Outside, it has full-LED front headlights with the business's Adaptive Front Light System, which works by manipulating the lights relying on the rate and direction of the contour.

Relocate to the inside, and also once more, you're going to have to pay close attention to the make-up of the cabin to discover what the special edition roadster got. The black natural leather seats are the obvious additions, and also they're good ones considering just how well they match the striking red shade of the body. Bear in mind, red and also black are the quintessential colors of passion among Italian automakers. It's not a shock that we see both colors used so prevalently on a scandal sheet roadster that has a legacy of enthusiastic fans. The last 2 items of the 124 Crawler Europa's special edition puzzle consist of the 124 logo on the front grille and also a commemorative, phoned number plaque in the interior of the automobile.

On the visual front, the 124 Crawler Elaborazione Abarth can be found in five different outside shades, specifically Bianco Gelato (White Clear Coat), Rosso Passione (Red Clear Layer), Nero Cinema (Jet Black Metallic), Grigio Argento (Gray Metallic), and tri-coat Bianco Perla (Crystal White Pearl).

Inside, the 124 Crawler Europa obtains a leather steering wheel, a seven-inch radio, MP3 with a USB port, and also a costs Bose Stereo system with nine speakers, consisting of a dual speaker established that proprietors would be shocked to recognize could be located in the headrest of both seats. Various other system rewards like cruise control, keyless access, rear camera, and also a navigation system with 3D maps are also all part of the full 124 Crawler Europa experience.

Under its hood, the scandal sheet two-seater roadster is still powered by a 1.4-liter four-cylinder turbocharged MultiAir modern technology that produces 140 horsepower as well as 177 pound-feet of torque and also mated to a manual six-speed transmission. Those are strong numbers but you sort of dream that Fiat, or somebody else under that FCA umbrella, would certainly have made some tweaks to press more power out of that engine to fit its special edition standing. In any case, the roadster is still good enough to dash to 62 mph in 7.5 secs before hitting a full throttle of 134 mph.
By sheer amount of special edition details, the 124 Crawler Europa is a lot much more suppressed compared with some past scandal sheet works produced by Fiat for its brand-new two-door roadster. The Abarth-branded variation of the 124 Crawler, for example, got the Elaborazione back in March 2016. That was filled with mechanical add-ons that were not readily available with the typical model. For one, the suspension of the cars and truck was the beneficiary of an uniquely tuned sporting activity suspension with Bilstein front as well as back shock absorbers that not just aid boost the car's traction, but also helps in boosting its handling abilities.

Power numbers for the 124 Spider Elaborazione Abarth amount to 160 horse power and 184 pound-feet of torque, 20 even more horses compared to the 124 Crawler Europa on account of the automobile being packaged as an Abarth design wrapped in Fiat garments.
