Revealed at the Geneva International Motor Show, the Abarth 124GT comes as standard with a carbon fibre roof, 17” OZ Ultra-Light alloys, Bose® sound system and Visibility pack including; dusk and rain sensors, rear parking sensors and adaptive front LED headlights and is limited to just 50 cars in the UK.
The carbon fibre roof weighs just16kgs maintaining the optimum 50:50 weight distribution of the 124. The hard top is lined on the inside and has a large rear window and efficient defroster to clear it in less than three minutes. It guarantees thermal insulation and soundproofing, while ensuring ample rear view.
The carbon fibre roof can be removed and refitted in a few easy steps. This means being able to easily switch from open-air thrills to grand-tourer-style, which has always been a key part of the DNA of the Abarth brand, in a few minutes.
Both with their unique differences, the two personalities perfectly embody the leading values of the brand of performance, craftsmanship and technical excellence.

Furthermore, the perfect 50/50 weight distribution in running order ensures outstanding feedback and agility. The suspension features high double wishbone suspension on the front and a five-arm multi-link on the rear with calibrated setup specifically designed to increase cornering and braking stability.
