Review: Fiat 124 – The classic Italian roadster, reinvented for the 21st century

From a European perspective you'd be forgiven for not quite picking up on the significance of the 124 Spider. Until you bear in mind it was first shown in 1966 and continued in production – in latter years as a Pininfarina – all the way through until 1985, by which time nearly 200,000 had been built. Its relative low profile here is explained by the fact 170,000 of them were sold in the US, where Fiat reckons 8,000 are still going strong. Big boots to fill then and little wonder Fiat has been keen to revive the formula that served it so well for 19 years.
