Sorry I'm a spell checking dude, but I think the term you want to use is Alcantra for the interior material.

You know I googled that and I think wordpress edited it to something else. Thanks for the feed back ill get that fixed lol!

Nice write-up! I finally got to drive one. It looks even better in person and drives great. It felt like a larger car to me while cruising but definitely has the handling of a smaller car. Fiat did a great job on the suspension and the leather seats. A very nice set-up for both handling and ride comfort. And, yes, it is indeed fairly quiet with the top down, with just the right amount of breeze passing by. One sweet ride, with a LOT of potential for enthusiasts, various mods, or just somebody looking for an attractive top-down ride, as is.

Nice pictures and layout. Alcantara is the spelling of the faux suede-like material.

thanks, I stand corrected, had to look it up. Didn't know that Alcantara is a specific material made by the Alcantara company.

Good news! I got my hands on a 124 Lusso this time on Saturday and actually got to drive the thing! Getting the pictures settled and then a write up. Look for it in the next couple of days!!

Fiat has been making a big deal about the "ultra rare" Prima 124. I chuckled to myself this morning, thinking the manuals, especially in the Lusso appear to be even rarer. I hope upcoming shipments have many more manuals than this initial shipment appears to have.
