EXTERIOR
DROP-TOP DREAMING

16-INCH AND 17-INCH ALUMINUM WHEELS
Performance and style are beautiful together. The 16-inch aluminum wheels are painted silver on the FIAT® 124 Spider Classica. The Lusso features 17-inch premium aluminum wheels painted silver. The new Red Top Edition includes 17-inch bright silver alloy wheels. The Abarth carries 17-inch aluminum wheels painted gunmetal.


MANUAL SOFT TOP
When driving with the top down and windows wide open, wind is carried high over your head and guided toward the rear. When the top is up, an aluminum header adds to a taut, smooth surface, resulting in a beautiful roofline and excellent sound insulation. The FIAT® 124 Spider Red Top Edition features a striking Bordeaux soft top.

HALOGEN HEADLAMPS AND LED TAILLAMPS
Halogen Projector Headlamps produce a wide light pattern spread, enhancing visibility across a broad area of road. LED taillamps provide clear, bright light, making vehicles easier to spot in the dark by drivers following behind. The LED taillamps don't require a filament, making them highly durable and less susceptible to breakage to better withstand harsh road conditions.
