There is a new wave of electric cars, led by Britain’s Jaguar I-Pace and closely followed by the Porsche Mission E Cross Turismo. A host of ever-popular Sport Utility Vehicles continued to dominate the show stands, with models including the new BMW X4 and Hyundai Santa Fe. And proving that the car makers haven’t given up entirely on building exciting sports cars, Toyota pulled the covers off a concept for a new Supra.
The Abarth 124 is, effectively, a Mazda MX-5 with a different suit and a turbocharged engine. For the new GT version, the only change is the fitment of a carbon fibre solid roof, and a carefully coordinated silver and black colour scheme. The roof doesn’t fold down, like the MX-5 RF; instead, you have you manhandle it, like the good old days, and leave it in the garage. However, you won’t be caught short if it rains, because the 124 GT still has a folding fabric roof.
