Fiat has removed the 124 Spider roadster from sale in the UK after just over two years on the market.

The model, which shares a platform with the Mazda MX-5, was taken off the company's model line-up on its website last week. However the Abarth version, in Spider and hard-top GT form, remains on sale. 

Autocar is awaiting comment from a Fiat UK spokesperson, but the car's removal from sale could potentially be due to WLTP emissions regulations. The car's 1.4-litre 'Multiair' turbocharged petrol engine is an older unit that's been in use by various Fiat-Chrysler brands for some years now, and it may not have been cost-effective to upgrade it for the introduction of more stringent emissions tests late last year.
