Listen To The Fiat 124 Abarth's Wonderful Growl!

Video

This is a Miata with an attitude!

We have been waiting to get a good look at the Fiat 124 Abarth for a long time. More importantly, we have been waiting to get a good listen. Although we have known what the car would look like, we didn't have a concrete idea of what it would sound like. The 124 is an important car because it takes the MX-5 into new, exotic territory. The Fiat version of the Mazda is more luxurious and sounds better than any MX-5 before. With the same basic engine as the 500 Abarth, the 124 growls like an Italian car should. After a long wait, the 124 doesn't disappoint.

This thing sounds really raspy. The new MX-5 is a great car, but the Miata's weak point has always been an engine soundtrack lacking any real emotion. The 124 changes this with an exhaust fit for an exotic.
