A 6-speed manual transmission is standard on all trims of the 124 Spider; a 6-speed automatic is available for an additional $1,350. The automatic can be shifted manually via the gearshift, but the Abarth trim adds the ease of paddle shifters. The Abarth is also equipped with a sport mode that alters the engine calibration, automatic transmission shift points, power steering and stability control. Fiat expects that 60 percent of 124 Spider buyers will opt for the automatic transmission.
