The Abarth takes the 124 Spider in a sporty direction with a sport-tuned suspension, a sport driving mode, a limited-slip differential, 17-inch gunmetal wheels, and the 164-hp engine. The quad exhaust tips produce a throaty note. Leather and microfiber seats are standard, while full leather costs $595.
Exclusively available to the Abarth are Recaro sport seats ($1,195) and a hand-painted black racing stripe ($2,195). Brembo brakes are also available for $1,495. The Veleno Appearance Group ($495) includes a red lower lip on the front fascia, red mirror caps, a red tow eye-opening cap, a bright dead pedal, and Abarth-badged floor mats.
