increased visibility, a more silent ride, a lighter car, a faster car — these are the warmly-welcomed side effects of a carbon fiber hard top. it’s a toyable little detail, you can put on and take off, seamlessly, for a drastic change in roadster appearance; it’s the detail that sets the fiat abarth 124 GT apart from others, at the 2018 geneva motor show.

you can listen to the car on abarth’s website — it isn’t the loudest, or the fastest ‘track’ vehicle out there, but it’s power, control, performance, and beauty standards are definitely that of a formidably stylish GT. powering this silver-grey fiat is a 1.4 turbo multiair engine with 170 HP: 4 in-line cylinders, 4 valves per cylinder. 250 NM of torque. let’s see. there’s also a five-arm-multilink suspension, a stabilizing bar, shock absorbers with abarth specific calibration, and finally, 17’ ultralight wheels.

all together, the specs allow for a breezy top speed of 232 km/h (0-100 km/h, 6.8 seconds). but, once again, the groundbreaking selling point isn’t in the performance; it’s in the subtlety of a quiet, convertible hard top — the carbon fiber noggin.
