The Fiat Chrysler Automobiles is a popular company that has come out with many attractive cars to suit various markets. Now, it is going to bring out a Fiat 124 Spider car in collaboration with Mazda. This is a roadster car that will be a top down model.
The fall season is just round the corner and it is the season to move around in full top cars. But, Fiat wants to take advantage of the good weather till it lasts and have started testing its new Fiat 124 Spider on the roads at high altitudes.
There are spy shots of the all new Fiat 124 Spider roadster doing test runs on the internet and it is in camouflaged state. The convertible that is shot with its roof down looks more or less like the one that was spied in July this year.
The roadster will be coming out with the rounded headlights and a wide grille at the front to give it a classic yet modern look. The front grille is kidney shaped and you can spot the hood bulge in the new spied photo of the Fiat 124 spider.
There are two exhausts at the rear end and the earlier spy shots showed the car to have four quad exhausts. The 124 Spider will be sharing the underpinning of the all new Mazda MX-5 Miata. The forthcoming roadster from Fiat will be based on the 4th generation ‘ND’ Mazda MX-5 Miata chassis. The roadster will be built at the Mazda factory.
There is no official information about the engine that will be used to power drive the forthcoming Fiat 124 Spider roadster. There was some information about it leaked during the FCA dealers meeting in Vegas last month. There are unconfirmed reports that Fiat 124 will be coming out in two trims: Abarth and regular.
The Alfa Romeo 4C motor will be seen in the Abarth version, according to rumors. This will make the car a very good spider roadster. The use of Mazda Miata chassis also gives a very good foundation to the car. There is no doubt that Fait will be looking to add enough punch and power to the engine under the hood of the 124 Spider to turn it into a fun sports car.
Fiat had earlier sold the 124 Spider from 1966 to 1985. The earlier versions of the Fiat 124 Spider had supercharged and turbocharged engines under its hood.
