Latest News: Work is now underway at our Northampton SEAT branch. A complete refurbishment is in progress and once finished, in addition to a modern, fresh SEAT showroom, Motorvogue will have one of the first Cupra showrooms in the country. Cupra, which has always been SEAT’s ultimate expression of sportiness, is born to captivate car enthusiasts around the world. Cupra stands for uniqueness, sophistication and performance. The time has come to introduce a special brand for enthusiasts, and we are delighted to have been selected to be one of the first dealerships in the country to showcase the new Cupra. SEAT is one of the fastest growing brands in Europe and is currently well placed for the launch of Cupra. In addition, Cupra will also encompass the entire motorsport and racing division, an area that until now was the responsibility of SEAT Sport and which will be directly integrated into the new brand.

The New Abarth 124 spider : 

The model in brief

The new Abarth 124 spider aims at sweeping a new generation of enthusiasts off their feet with its performance and technical DNA. The model combines the authentic roadster experience packed with thrills, technology, safety with a touch of unmistakable Italian design.

Performance DNA

The new Abarth 124 spider guarantees all the thrills and fun that only a real spider can offer. Developed with the Abarth Racing team, the car perfectly embodies the leading values of the brand: performance, artisan craft, technical excellence. This is a car designed to put the smile back on the faces of those lucky enough to drive it.
For outstanding dynamic performance, Abarth 124 spider fits a mechanical self-locking differential as standard equipment. The weight is concentrated between the axles and the engine is installed behind the front axle to guarantee optimal agility and superior driving feel. Sophisticated mechanics and the use of special materials have been used to contain the weight to just 1060 kilograms, which results in a weight-to-power ratio of 6.2 kg/HP, the best in its category. Furthermore, the optimal weight distribution guarantees excellent feedback and agility.

The suspension of the 124 spider features high double wishbone suspension on the front and a five-arm multi-link on the rear. The set-up is calibrated specifically to increase stability on corners and for compression braking. Steering feedback is optimised by adopting a specific sports calibration of the power steering system.

Under the bonnet is a powerful, ultra-reliable 1.4 litre four-cylinder turbocharged engine with MultiAir technology. It delivers 170 HP (that is about 124 HP per litre) and 250 Nm of torque: it has a top speed of 232 km/h and goes from 0 to 100 km/h in 6.8 seconds. What is more, the engine sound is a fundamental element of all Abarth cars, and standard equipment includes the Record Monza exhaust with dual mode system capable of modifying the path of the exhaust gas according to engine rpm and generating a satisfying, deep sound.
The spider is available with a six-speed manual or an automatic Esseesse Sports Sequential gearbox.
