Latest News: The 2019 racing season began with a resounding success for Abarth in the FIA R-GT Cup in the Monte Carlo Rally.  Driven by Italians Enrico Brazzoli and Manuel Fenoli, the Abarth 124 rally reasserted its position as the GT to beat in its category, having taken the title in 2018.  The Monte Carlo Rally once again lived up to its claim of being a challenging race, with drivers finding it necessary to use spiked winter tyres for most timed stages.  They managed to switch to dry tyres for the final leg, which included two crossings of the legendary Col de Turini. Crew and car took the 2019 edition of the Monte Carlo Rally in their stride and dominated the category from beginning to end. Brazzoli, driving the Abarth 124 rally for the first time in a race, kept up a good pace and increased his lead over his opponents in the icy conditions. "We are very excited", Brazzoli said on the finish line. "This is a great result. We planned everything down to the last detail with Bernini and Abarth and are proud to have completed in this first race. My feeling with the car grew mile after mile. The Abarth 124 rally is fun to drive and very competitive. The special stages of the Monte Carlo Rally are always difficult, but we managed to get back to Monaco without problems". The next race of the season for Brazzoli will be the Rallye Tour de Corse, the second stage of the FIA R-GT Cup at the end of March.  Abarth is also organising a single-brand championship with six races in the European Championship calendar (the first in Spain on 3 May, 2019) with the Abarth 124 rally. The 2019 Abarth 124 rally implements a host of technical modifications engineered to accentuate competitiveness and handling by the race engineers. These improvements are the result of meticulous development work carried out by test driver Alex Fiorio.

ABARTH 124 GT - In showrooms now.

ABARTH 124 GT - In showrooms now. Revealed at the Geneva International Motor Show, the Abarth 124GT comes as standard with a carbon fibre roof, 17” OZ Ultra-Light alloys, Bose® sound system and Visibility pack including; dusk and rain sensors, rear parking sensors and adaptive front LED headlights and is limited to just 50 cars in the UK.

The carbon fibre roof weighs just 16kgs maintaining the optimum 50:50 weight distribution of the 124. The hard top is lined on the inside and has a large rear window and efficient defroster to clear it in less than three minutes. It guarantees thermal insulation and soundproofing, while ensuring ample rear view. 

The carbon fibre roof can be removed and refitted in a few easy steps. This means being able to easily switch from open-air thrills to grand-tourer-style, which has always been a key part of the DNA of the Abarth brand, in a few minutes.

Both with their unique differences, the two personalities perfectly embody the leading values of the brand of performance, craftsmanship and technical excellence. The Abarth 124 was engineered to create a new benchmark in the sports roadster segment and boldly does so with cutting-edge engineering solutions, such as weight concentrated within the wheelbase, engine installed behind the front axle, sophisticated mechanics and special materials to achieve excellent weight-to-power ratio. Furthermore, the perfect 50/50 weight distribution in running order ensures outstanding feedback and agility. The suspension features high double wishbone suspension on the front and a five-arm multi-link on the rear with calibrated setup specifically designed to increase cornering and braking stability.

The 124GT is also equipped with the legendry Record Monza Exhaust giving the car its recognisable Abarth sound, as well as mechanical self-locking differential for greater traction. The Abarth 124GT is available in three colours: Portogallo 1974 Grey, San Marino 1972 Black and Turini 1975 White.

The Abarth 124GT is fitted with a 1.4 MultiAir Turbo 170hp engine as per the 124 spider reaching 62mph in 6.8 seconds and a maximum speed of 144mph while returning a combined cycle and emitting 148g/km CO2 for the manual. The 6-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters 0-62mph in 6.9 seconds and a maximum speed of 142mph while returning a combined cycle and emitting 153g/km CO2. The 1.4 MultiAir Turbo engine has a combined cycle of 44.1mpg for the manual and 42.8mpg for the automatic.

The Abarth 124GT is available for £299 per month on a 2 year PCH offer until the end of December 2018.
