Abarth has revealed prices for its exclusive 124 GT model. The limited-edition roadster, based on the Fiat 124 Spider, will start from £33,625 on the road.

Just 50 examples of the Abarth 124 GT will be sold in the UK, though each one will be highly specified – a good thing considering that high price tag. The biggest change over the standard Abarth 124 Spider is the roof. Where the normal car has a manually-folding soft-top, the GT features a rigid carbon-fibre roof instead.

The roof is still removable, so the 124 GT can be changed from a coupe to a roadster in a few steps – though owners will need to leave the roof at home once it’s off. It weighs just 16kg, and adds rigidity to the chassis when it’s in place. It features a heated rear window and is lined for a bit of added refinement.

The Abarth 124 GT also gains a few styling tweaks, such as OZ alloy wheels, which not only look the part but shave weight. There’s a mechanical limited-slip differential, and a shouty Record Monza exhaust – giving the 1.4-litre turbocharged petrol engine its recognisable Abarth bark.

Inside, buyers benefit from a Bose sound system and distinctive two-tone leather seats.

Performance is virtually identical to the standard car, so 0-60mph is dispatched in well under seven seconds and the top speed is 144mph. There’s a six-speed manual as standard, though buyers can opt for a six-speed automatic if they want.

   

Three colours are on offer for the Abarth 124 GT, named after Abarth race wins – Portogallo 1974 Grey, San Marino 1972 Black and Turini 1975 White. A black bonnet can also be specified.
