Abarth has unveiled the spicy Punto Supersport.
Fiat's aftermarket arm Abarth has released the first photos of their Punto Supersport, the most powerful version of the model ever built. The hot hatch packs quite a punch for a Fiat and adds to Abarth's reputation of producing cool little cars you would like to own. Abarth has added a modified exhaust with centrally-mounted pipes and a Garrett turbocharger to boost the Punto's 1.4-liter MultiAir Turbo up to 180hp. The Punto Supersport sprints to 62mph from rest in 7.5 seconds and can reach a top speed of 134mph.
A high-performance braking system has been affixed to handle the added power. The aftermarket specialists have also added new shocks, leather sport seats and steering wheel, aluminum pedals and automatic climate control, amongst other touches here and there. The ride height has been lowered and it sits on a set of lightweight 17-inch alloy wheels. The Abarth Fiat Punto Supersport will be produced in a limited run of only 199 units and pricing starts at €21,900. Orders are now being taken by the Italians, so if you have a desire for a quick little Fiat hatch, you'd better act fast.
