Abarth with the Movistar Yamaha Moto GP team in Spain for the Aragon GP
- Valentino Rossi and Jorge Lorenzo are returning to the circuit that saw them both on the podium last year.
- In the last four races, “The Doctor” has caught up with the championship leader and is now second.
Anticipation is running high for the fourteenth appointment with MotoGP championship scheduled to take place this weekend in Spain on the Aragon circuit where Valentino Rossi, currently second in the ranking, will continue in his quest to catch up with the championship leader. In the past four races, Rossi has always finished ahead of his rival in the rush for the title, winning a well-deserved second place in the last race on the Misano Adriatico circuit in front of his many fans.
Among the supporters of the Italian rider is Abarth, official sponsor of the Movistar Yamaha Moto GP team, that in Aragon will also be counting on Jorge Lorenzo, who was first in 2015.
The race track, located between Barcelona and Valencia in an area of outstanding natural beauty, is the ideal backdrop for the new Abarth 124 spider, engineered to satisfy the tastes of even the most difficult-to-please drivers. The new model with the scorpion badge has rear-wheel drive, sophisticated suspension and a four-cylinder 1.4 MultiAir Turbo engine delivering 170 HP, paired with a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic Essesse sports sequential gearbox with shift paddles. The car combines the pleasure of sporty driving with the feeling of freedom that only a convertible can offer.
Abarth 124 spider will be available from dealerships across Europe soon and completes the line-up joining Abarth 595 on the line-up. The latter model features three trim levels (595, 595 Turismo and 595 Competizione) and just as many engine power and tuning levels to satisfy today’s increasingly demanding and competent customers. Many of the upgrades introduced are the result of experience gained with the development of 695 Biposto, the “smallest supercar”, that offers the thrills and technology of a real racing car on a road car.
