Fiat 124 Abarth render 600x388 at Rendering: Fiat 124 Abarth

A day after the official unveiling of the new Fiat 124 at the Los Angeles Auto Show we get a rendering of a high-performance version of the car from our favorite auto artist, X-Tomi Design. The speculative Fiat 124 Abarth here previews what will eventually be offered by the Italian car maker as a production model.

Of course, as you probably know from our previous report on the 124, the MX-5-based drop-top sports car is already powered by the 160 horsepower Abarth 500 engine in its American version (Euro-spec gets a 140 hp unit). So if we were to speculate on what sort of power Fiat 124 Abarth would get, we’d put our money on the 190 horsepower 1.4 T-Jet engine out of the Biposto. That power in a small and compact roadster is a recipe for fun.

Styling-wise, though changes are subtle, Fiat 124 Abarth would get – as you can see in the picture – a different, more aggressive grille with the Abarth badge, even more pronounced bonnet bulges, blacked-out accents including the windscreen frame and mirror caps, and a boot lid spoiler. The interior will be different too, boasting stuff like two-tone black and red seats and sporty trims.
