Want some serious summer fun? Check out the Fiat 124 Spider Convertible!


Nothing says ‘summer’ like riding around in a convertible with the top down.  It gives a feeling of freedom and excitement you’ll never forget!  Bettenhausen Automotive has a luxurious new offering to get you revved up for some seriously fun driving this summer.


The Fiat 124 Spider was originally created in 1966 as  2+2 roadster, and was considered one of the most beautiful roadsters ever built.  The model lasted a long time, until 1982.  In 2015, Fiat announced a resurrection of the 124 Spider beginning in 2016, and the updated version uses several styling touches reminiscent of the original model.  The hexagonal upper grille, turn signals mounted below the headlamps toward the bumper’s edges, and general Italian style all bring back shades of the past.


The new Spider is nothing but modern, however.  With a class-exclusive 160hp turbo engine available, a nearly 50/50 weight distribution, four-wheel independent suspension, and electric power steering, control and handling are superb.  


The Fiat 124 Spider offers available safety features such as adaptive front headlamps, Blind-spot Monitoring, Rear Cross Path Detection, and a ParkView rear backup camera.  The vehicle’s high-strength body helps dissipate energy, while protecting occupants at an optimum level.  All Spider models have a total of four airbags for the driver and passenger, along with three-point seatbelts.


The available infotainment system option consists of a 7-inch touchscreen display, AM/FM radio, HD radio, MP3 player, an auxiliary input, six speakers, two USB ports, multimedia control, Bluetooth, a rear camera, and 3D navigation.  The system also provides voice recognition allowing drivers to operate their mobile phone, music, and navigation system hands-free.
