NEW Fiat Abarth ?

3 posts in this topic

I find it very strange that I can buy a new Fiat Abarth Roadster here in Australia. Funny thing is that it is built in Japan by the Mazda factory using all Mazda parts BUT I am assured it is an "Abarth" sold by Fiat in Australia. I think that this something called "Badge Engineering". Perhaps the plastic badge goes from Italy to be stuck on in Japan.  Would that make it "Authentic"?????

Dont forget the latest Fiat 124 Sport is a Mazda ND model MX5 under the skin - Fiat drive train and   body skin, Mazda base and suspension. Seems to go every bit as well as well a the original, and looks very good.

Fiat 124 Spider was made based on the fourth generation Mazda MX-5 too.
