Fiat Spider Record Monza Exhaust Coming!

Abarth 124 Spider

Fiat enthusiasts will be happy to hear the long awaited Record Monza exhaust system upgrade for the Fiat 124 Spider Abarth is on its way! This special exhaust upgrade features a Dual Mode Muffler that has a valve that bypasses the muffler depending on engine load. Its name honors Carlo Abarth's speed record he personally set at the Monza race track in 1965.

Record Monza Dual Mode Exhaust - $895.00 preliminary catalog pricing.

We received insider information that dealer orders for the Abarth Record Monza Exhaust will open as a 'factory' upfit (Abarth only) beginning next month and will also be available over the counter by late April. Cars ordered with a Record Monza will have the exhaust system hand fitted when the car arrives in the US, just like the Abarth Racing Heritage stripe.  European Abarth Spiders feature this same hand fitting when arriving in Europe.

The initial batch of cars fitted with the exhaust will come with a limited edition Abarth fender badge to commemorate the launch, celebrating the first US Fiats available with a ‘factory’ exhaust upgrade option. From what we heard, upfit pricing will be right around $995 with the over the counter version coming in around $895.

The Abarth Record Monza features a muffler bypass that activates depending on engine load. Typically anything over 3000 rpm will be in bypass mode and sounds awesome.

The Record Monza is a direct bolt-on for Abarths, but requires a little lower fascia trimming to fit on the Classica and Lussos models (a template is included with the instructions).

Check with your Abarth dealer for details. Note this is breaking news so your dealer may need to get up to speed on this. Tell them you read it on!
