When the Fiat Abarth 124 Spider launched a couple of years ago, I’d just sold my Alfa Romeo 4C and was looking for a replacement.

The Alfa Romeo Giulia hadn’t arrived in Australia but it was on my wish list along with a couple of other brands. I read extensively about the Fiat Abarth 124 Spider and the comments coming from the press were mixed. Ultimately the Fiat stayed where it was in the dealer showroom and I waited for my Giulia QV.

Hi, Bob Aldons, The Car Guy, with info about the very attractive Fiat Abarth 124 Spider.

I wasn’t disappointed that I’d waited as the QV was all sorts of luxury performance vehicle and it fitted nicely into The Car Guy’s garage.

Subsequently to the Alfa being stolen last year, I ended up in a BMW M3, but I’m getting itchy feet for another Italian motor. Not that I’m heading for the Fiat Abarth 124 Spider, but I came across a review on YouTube about it so I thought I’d share the opinions of Tom Holland from Throttle House.

Throttle House is a Canadian based company that “reviews the latest and greatest in the automotive industry. You won’t find boring spec sheet regurgitation here. Instead, you can expect detailed road and track tests that include drag races, timed laps, and general silliness with the fastest cars… we promise not to be dull”
