The 2017 Fiat 124 Spider is basically a Miata with a Fiat 500 Abarth engine. But does the 124 sound as good as the 500? We (kinda sorta) found out.

Here’s the car prowling the parking garage of the LA Auto Show, where Fiat debuted the car earlier today.

Can’t wait to hear the thing running wide open.

UPDATE: We’ve actually managed to snag a much better listen to the car. Check it out here:
