Fiat 124 Spider Elaborazione Abarth

North American Fiat 124 Spider Elaborazione Abarth

The Fiat 124 Spider Elaborazione Abarth is coming. This tongue twister may be what the Abarth 124 is called on this side of the Atlantic. At least this is what the preliminary information coming out has the car listed as. In Europe, Abarth is an actual car make and has its own dealerships and service centers. In the US, the relatively limited volume Abarth models sold here do not warrant the same treatment, hence the name Fiat 124 Spider with "Elaborazione Abarth" tacked onto the end. This loosely translates to a Fiat 124 Spider with the Abarth treatment. Elaborazione is Italian for elaboration but is closer to the expression 'worked' when seen attached to a car.

Whatever the official name is, we will see the debut this week at the New York Auto Show and its television premiere on "LIVE With Kelly And Michael" Thursday at 9 AM on ABC.

I'll be at the auto show this week taking plenty of pictures for us all, so make sure you keep an eye on the Fiat 500 USA Instagram and Facebook pages as well as the blog and forum. Between the Fiat 124 Spider Elaborazione Abarth and the new Alfa Romeo Giulia lineup debut, it is going to be an exciting week!
