A spider with front engine and rear traction requires a specific chassis. 124 Spider Europa relies on high-resistance steel to keep the weight of its structure down, while ensuring rigidity and maximum safety.
The finest materials are not sufficient to ensure excellent shock absorption. The layout and design of the body must also be structured with multiple loads to ensure optimum absorption and the best energy distribution.
Longitudinal front engine, gearbox, transmission shaft and finally rear differential.
All aligned with the longitudinal axis: the top mechanical system for achieving optimum weight distribution in a spider.
The geometry of the suspension is that of a true roadster: quadrilateral at the front and multilinkage at the back. For accuracy and a quick response when activated in a curve, holding the road and providing traction on the way out. That overall stability that demands respect.
