2015 Abarth Roadster is the result of a failed joint work of Fiat and Mazda.
Just recently, the audience was brought Roadster under the name Abarth, it should be noted that this concept was supposed to be the result of the fruitful work of companies such as Fiat and Mazda. Italian carmaker Fiat has decided on a name for the new Roadster, developed by the company. The new product will be called the 124 Spider in honor of the car, which was established in 1966-1982 years.
As reported by the media, the agreement also specified that the first on the market should reach Mazda MX-5 this year, and after that Fiat may display 124 Spider. Most likely, the novelty will be presented at the end of 2015, and sales will begin closer to the middle of 2016.
First it was assumed that Alfa Romeo Roadster going to share a platform with the next generation Mazda MX-5, and the total amount of shared components on the models of the two manufacturers will reach 40 percent.
We expected that in the automotive market, the new model will be offered under both brands such as Fiat and Abarth. In the cooperation agreement FCA and Mazda stated that the Assembly of the new Roadster 124 Spider will be on the Mazda production capacities in Hiroshima, along with the MX-5.
The most interesting thing we mentioned earlier that the Roadster will be available for sale under brands such as Alfa Romeo, or Mazda, however, the Assembly of the car had to be in one of the Japanese plants. Now the representatives of this car made an official statement, where it became clear that the production will be set in Italy. Hence we can conclude that Alfa Romeo is not going to manufacture its brand cars on the territory of other countries.
Сhange of plans
But at the end of December 2014, Alfa Romeo has officially confirmed the rumors that the new brand Roadster will be developed by the Italians themselves, and not in cooperation with the “Mazda”, as previously thought. About this in an interview said the head of “Alpha” Harald Wester.
“As for the successor of the Spider model, the final project is not a joint Roadster, developed by concern FCA and “Mazda”. Now it joins the Giorgio project” said Wester.
Modular Alfa Romeo platform named Giorgio is developed together with the engineers of Maserati and for the first time will appear on the Giulia sedan. Next Roadster will be built on a new modular platform of Alfa Romeo. Chassis that will get versions with rear-and all-wheel drive, debuts on the Giulia sedan, and then appears on two crossovers. Subsequently, it can also appear on the Chrysler 300 sedan new generation and the following Charger and Challenger.
