Title: MOPAR 124 Abarth....
Post by: PORTHOS on June 14, 2016, 11:35:48 am


So at the US launch, a few days after the European press drive, the company showed – then invited us to thrash it without mechanical sympathy around an autocross course – a Fiata loaded down with new fun bits from Mopar.

Such as?

A super raspy cat-back performance exhaust, strut tower and rear tunnel braces, new front control arms and a turbo blow-off valve. All of which made the already hilariously flickable car even more fun. And by fun I mean faster, better sounding, more controllable and more precise.

Looking forward to see exactly how much this will effect the performance figures.

I do expect many more versions of the Abarth 124,in Europe, within next year. If the 500-line Abarths tops 190hp in the 695, it should come a version of the 124 with a similar output (even if it uses the Multiair).

With 190hp and the mopar trim it should at least be able to do 0-100 in sub 6 seconds. For me to be interested theres also a need for a hardtop.

The sad thing is that the base price is about 5k to high, meaning the performance versions will be ridicously expensive. I wouldn't buy an Abarth at a price close to an Alfa 4C....

The car seems to have great potential - hoping for some good discounts :)
