FIAT announces an all-new “Scorpion Sting” Appearance Group on the performance-oriented Fiat 124 Spider Abarth roadster.
Celebrating the 70th year of the Fiat Abarth, the Scorpion Sting package features an iconic Abarth scorpion hood decal and side stripes in Rosso Red for an unmistakable look.
“Every Fiat 124 Spider comes standard with turbocharged open-air fun,” said Tim Kuniskis, Global Head of Alfa Romeo and Head of Passenger Cars – Dodge, SRT, Chrysler and FIAT, FCA – North America. “The Scorpion Sting Appearance Group gives the roadster head-turning presence and yet another way to customize the fun-to-drive Fiat 124 Spider Abarth.”
