In the 1960s we could see the stylish roadster, 124 Spider presented by Fiat and they surfaced it for 2014. They confirmed its arrival at Geneva Motor Show in 2015 and at that time, they revealed their new roadster on the way with the underpinnings of Mazda MX-5. We heard various reports that claimed if Fiat 124 Spider will also get performance-oriented Abarth model for a more powerful engine design and all good things around under the scorpion badge. The standard roster revealed at 2015 Los Angeles Show for its performance design at 2016 Geneva Motor. It is no surprise if 2018 Fiat 124 Spider Abarth will use the same recipe as 500 Abarth.

So, it will be a bit identical to 500 Abarth especially for its same styling cues as regular roadster but the aerodynamic is enhanced as well as upgraded body to make its current styling much more aggressive than before. The front part will be completed with new honeycomb mesh grille that makes it a bit similar to its original version with the new air vents and black plastics underneath the daytime running lights. The grille has larger, revised but lowers with integrated fog lamps for 2018 Fiat 124 Spider Abarth and the sportier apron comes with a red insert. The host has a matte black finish for its anti-glare kit and the scorpion badge will replace the standard bonnet as well as Fiat logo.
For its side, this roadster will go with black-painted skirts, multi-spoke, and 17-inch of lightweight wheels with red calipers as well as scorpion badges for its front fenders. It has a lower design, thanks to its revised suspension system. The surprising look is it doesn’t get Abarth stripes but buyers can find it out as optional. The back part has a sportier piece with vents close to the rear wheels and there is the quad-exhaust layout for the aggressive diffuser. Its original matte black trunk lid is presented. We can say that 2018 Fiat 124 Spider Abarth has a sporty rear end but no carbon-fiber to use, sadly. In addition, there will be windscreen, roll bars finished in Grey, five body color options, and others.
