The brilliant Abarth 124 spider is set to thrill visitors at this year’s Autosport International 2018 show with an all-new drift experience. The stunning two-seater roadster will offer visitors a unique opportunity to experience drifting from the passenger seat at this week’s (11-14 January) NEC, Birmingham exhibition.
Show-goers will be invited to take the passenger seat for this ride-of-a-lifetime experience, to feel the handling and drifting performance of the 124 spider inside Hall 4.
Meanwhile, outside Autosport International’s main exhibition hall, visitors will also have the opportunity to appreciate the dynamic abilities of the Abarth 595 first hand in the Abarth Autotest.
“Abarth and Autosport International are a perfect match” says Gerry Southerington, Abarth UK. ”Autosport International is always a great venue to demonstrate Abarth’s dynamic abilities and it was an ideal place to debut the 124 Spider Drift Experience alongside the ever-popular 595 Autotest.
“At Abarth we want people to experience the performance and handling first-hand by allowing them to get behind the wheel of these incredible models.”
At the same time as Autosport International, Abarth will also be displaying the Abarth 695 Rivale at the London Boat Show at Excel, London. The Abarth 695 Rivale came from the collaboration between Abarth and Riva – the result being a special series that combines tradition and innovation of two legends from Italian manufacturing.
“The London Boat Show offers us a unique opportunity to show the Abarth 695 Rivale to visitors,” adds Gerry Southerington. “The 695 Rivale comes from our collaboration with the iconic Italian boat manufacturer Riva. This partnership made the London Boat show the ideal place to display this stunning new model.
