Revealed for the first time at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show, the FIAT 124 Spider Anniversary Edition was designed to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the unveiling of the original roadster in Turin in 1966.
The exclusive special edition FIAT, of which only 124 numbered examples were made available to British enthusiasts, was priced at £23,295 and offered unique equipment specifications. All 124 examples of the UK-specification FIAT 124 Anniversary Edition are now spoken for in advance of the first cars hitting showrooms on September 10.
Sebastiano Fedrigo of FIAT UK, said: “The interest in FIAT’s reborn roadster has been incredible and that’s before most people have even seen the car in the metal. Once the FIAT 124 Spider hits the streets and showrooms, even more people will begin to fall for its style and presence and once they drive it, they will be hooked.”
The FIAT 124 Spider brings Italian styling and an authentic roadster driving experience to a new generation of enthusiasts, encapsulating the essence of its classic predecessor in a modern package. Powered by FIAT’s proven 1.4-litre, MultiAir, turbo-charged four-cylinder engine, which delivers 140hp and 240Nm of torque, the FIAT 124 Spider is capable of accelerating to 62mph in just 7.5 seconds and has a top speed of 134mph.
Thanks to its lightweight roadster architecture and ideal weight distribution, the FIAT 124 Spider’s rear-wheel drive chassis offers a dynamic and exciting driving experience without compromising comfort and refinement. Prices for the FIAT 124 Spider will start at £19,545 when it goes on sale on 10 September.
