But there's one catch.
For the few individuals out there that believe the new Mazda MX-5 Miata is still a wimpy car, there’s the more aggressive Fiat Abarth 124 Spider. Unlike the regular roadster that has a different body and engine than the Miata, Abarth has a made a few more changes to the sports car. For starters, there’s the 1.4-liter turbocharged engine that puts out 170 hp, Bilstein dampers, Brembo brakes and a Record Monza exhaust. The roadster's aggressive styling makes it the clear choice for those worried about their looks.
Abarth has just put its configurator up for its 124 Spider and it reveals all. So what’s the catch? It’s a European configurator that only shows how much the sports car is going for in pounds. The other problem is that Abarth will most likely offer the sports car with special options in Europe that won’t make it to the US. So while the configurator is a great way to see what the amped-up sports car will look like, it’s nothing to swear by. But that didn’t stop us from spending a lot of time building our perfect sports car. We fitted ours with the Spider Heritage Look, Turini 1975 white paint job, and skipped over the options for a total of roughly $43,326. That's a lot of car, but it should be cheaper when it comes to the US, so go ahead and build away.
