Meet Fiat’s Addition to the Sports Car Market

Finally, Fiat has made its highly-anticipated return to the sports car market!

After Fiat made a triumphant return to the city car market with the Fiat 500, many hoped that we would be able to repeat the feat, with our legendary sports car – the Fiat 124 Spider.

Well, the legend is definitely back, and it’s better than it has ever been!

The Fiat 124 Spider debuted in 1966, garnering instant praise from car critics around the world.

The Spider’s elegant body was built by Pininfarina, the same company that designed the original Alfa Romeo Giulietta Spider. Its features included a twin-cam 4-cylinder motor, five-speed manual transmission, and four-wheel disc brakes. Unlike most sports cars of the era, the interior was surprisingly spacious, too.

Unfortunately, production of the Spider was discontinued in 1985. Thirty-one years later, the Fiat 124 Spider is back!

The new Spider was showcased at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show, after years of anticipation from patient crowds. Continue reading “Meet Fiat’s Addition to the Sports Car Market”
