Fiat 124 Spider Gets Alfa Romeo 4C Engine


Fiat Chrysler Automobiles chief operating officer Alfredo Altavilla says there will be a high-performance Abarth tuned version of the upcoming Fiat 124 Spider which shares its platform with the all new Mazda MX-5. Fiat plans to make two versions of the 124 Spider. One will be a ‘comfortable’ model and the other will be a more performance oriented Abarth version.

Power for this roadster will come from a detuned version of the 1750L turbo-4 cylinder engine that is found in the Alfa Romeo 4C. That engine is rated to produce an impressive 237 horsepower in the 4C, but it would probably be detuned to 200 horsepower in the 124 Spider Abarth.


Assuming weight stays roughly the same between the Fiat and Mazda versions, the Abarth would have a strong power-to-weight ratio and could achieve 0-100 km/h times in the sub 5 seconds range. The classic Fiat Spider is pictured below.
