Switch of the stability control and the rear tyres break traction more easily, allowing for some entertaining stabs of oversteer out of tighter corners.

    Looks like the 124 will be a hit, ive just bought a copy of Quattroruote in Italy today and they absolutely love it.

    So would you be tempted to exchange the keys to your abarth for a while whilst we await the abarth version?

    No, I think the Abarth version wont be far behind the Fiat version... Abarth test cars were around not long after the Fiat version, they have even been tested together so I think it's a fair assumption to say both versions will be on the market this year. There is rumour since 2015 that the Abarth 124 will be at Geneva show next month......

    I'll be test driving the 124 Fiat version though, no doubt about that!

    Just saw this... Looking very good for the Abarth version but the 6.8s quoted 0-62 time of it needs to be much better to get my custom. The 170 bhp just isn't enough, not trading my 180 comp in for a slower car.

    The Abarth version should be fun with a LSD. Well done Fiat. Japanese reliability with a nice 1.4 motor :)
