The brand new Italian drop-top 2016 Fiat 124 Spider, based around the latest Mazda MX-5, was recently released at the 2015 Los Angeled Auto Show.

One of the new cars recently presented at the 2015 Los Angeles Auto Show is the brand new 2016 Fiat 124 Spider, based around the latest Mazda MX-5. The Italian drop-top shares its underpinnings with the MX-5 but utilises a completely bespoke body while also bringing with it a new turbocharged petrol engine.

It has a 1.4-litre MultiAir turbocharged engine that pumps out a total of 140 hp and 240 Nm of torque. Fiat claims that it has positioned the engine in such a way that it improves the weight distribution and therefore results in better handling.

The body of the Fiat 124 Spider is made from aluminium and high-tensile steel with straight beams providing most of the vehicle’s strength. There are also front sub-frame and rear cross members connecting to these straight beams. Aluminium has been used for the bonnet, boot lid, bulkhead panel, underbody cross-member, front and rear bumper reinforcements and the seatback bars.

The differences between the 124 Spider and the Mazda MX-5 is obvious with completely custom body panels as well as new headlights and taillights. Interestingly, the interior has gone relatively unchanged from the MX-5 meaning it incorporates a simple and stripped-back design.
