Fiat recently unveiled the searing hot version of its hatch Punto internationally. Christened the Abarth Punto Evo, the flaming hot car features a turbocharged 1.4-liter Multiair engine dishing out 162bhp of power and 250Nm of peak torque. Capable of accelerating from 0-100km/h in 8s flat, this car will sure be a riot, with all the sensibilities still intact. Won’t you give an arm and leg for such a beauty? Unfortunately, even with so many arms and legs around, there isn’t practically enough ‘money’ for Fiat to consider bringing this beauty to India.
Abarth badge is worn by Fiat cars which have the go to match their sex appeal. According to Abarth, “Normally, when you use an object you do not think about how it was made or why it was made in a certain way, you simply use it. This does not happen with an Abarth. An Abarth reminds you in every detail and at every moment that it was built with but one purpose: performance. Each of its components expresses its vocation: its incisive engine sound, the noise of its wheels on the asphalt, its attractive design, its race-tuned suspension and acceleration worthy of an out-and-out sports car.”
Another beauty, the Abarth 500C was revealed simultaneously. Powered by a turbocharged 1.4-liter Turbo T-Jet engine with 138 bhp and 206 Nm of torque, the 500C is pretty swift for its size.
