Abarth Punto Evo esseesse
« on: September 13, 2010, 10:55:27 am »
Abarth engineers designed and developed the new esseesse kits for the Abarth 500C and Abarth Punto Evo with the aim of creating a unique driving experience in terms of performance, handling, comfort and safety. As always, Abarth tuning is an indissoluble mix of performance and safety: any increase in the former is reflected by at least an equivalent rise in the latter.

For example, the Koni shock absorbers included in both kits guarantee the car the best road-holding in maximum safety, adapting it to a personal driving style. The compression and expansion of the shock absorbers contributes to superior car handling under all road conditions.

At the same time, both kits give the cars an injection of power, significantly improving performance and acceleration yet without affecting the CO2 levels. What's more, if you select the Sport function, standard on all Abarth cars, the new kits further enhance driving satisfaction. As is traditional with Abarth, both the esseesse kit for the 500C and the Punto Evo are delivered to customers in a wooden case and are fitted exclusively by official Abarth tuning centres to ensure the highest standards of monitoring and safety.

Esseesse kit for the Abarth Punto Evo

In detail, the kit allows the 1.4 16v Turbo MultiAir power unit to achieve a maximum power of 180 HP (132 kW) at 5750 rpm and in Sport mode, a maximum torque of 270 Nm at 3000 rpm. The result is truly thrilling performance: top speed is 216 km/h with acceleration from 0-100 km/h in just 7.5 seconds. Even once the kits have been installed, the CO2 emissions guaranteed by the MultiAir remain unchanged (142 g/km) to ensure that the car maintains its Euro 5 compliance.

Consistent with Abarth’s concept of performance tuning in utmost safety, the esseesse kit includes perforated, ventilated front disc brakes (diameter 305 mm x 28 mm), perforated rear disc brakes (diameter 264 mm x 11 mm), high performance front brake pads, front and rear Koni shock absorbers with FSD valve, specific red springs set lower than those on the original car, Abarth esseesse 7” x 18” ET39 alloy wheels painted white or titanium, combined with  215/40 ZR18 tyres.

The make-up of the conversion kit for the Abarth Punto Evo is completed by a special “powered by BMC” air filter, an Abarth silencer with twin tail pipes, and esseesse badges for the engine cover and tailgate.

    Any news on the price of the SS kit for the APE? Will it be similar to that on the AGP, if so what was that again?  :)

    But shocks and springs now instead. Are the brakes upgraded too or not?

    Yes. The Punto EVO SS kit contains the same high performance pads and drilled disks as the SS kit for the GP Abarth.

    Anyone know of the price of this kit yet?
    I would hope its around the same price of the 500 ss kit. It would make me more interested in getting one of these if it is.
