Abarth Punto 'SuperSport'
« on: August 30, 2011, 10:29:48 am »
'Heritage' is the element that distinguishes the special Abarth Punto 'SuperSport' series, typified by a Grigio Campovolo two-tone livery enriched with a special matte black paintwork for the bonnet and roof, which interprets in its design an element in the past used on the racing cars to prevent the light reflections.

The exterior of the car is further enhanced by 'supersport' graphics on the side panel and on the tailgate and by matt black mirror covers. The same colour also distinguishes the 18" alloy rims with dedicated Abarth esseesse design with red calipers and hub cap.

Powered by a 1.4 Multiair engine that develops 180 HP (132 kW) at 5,750 rpm and with 270 Nm of maximum torque at 2,500 rpm, the Abarth Punto 'SuperSport' reaches a top speed of more than 216 km/h and accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in just 7.5 seconds.

Further contributions to performance come from the modified suspension and safety (some of the features of the 'Esseesse Abarth Koni' kit), as well as the adoption of floating, perforated and self-ventilated front disc brakes with oversized four-piston red brake calipers, perforated rear disc brakes, high performance front brake pads, front and rear Koni shock absorbers with FSD (Frequency Selective Dumping) valve and specially lowered springs. The exhaust pipe oversized in the centre segment is also taken from the 'Esseesse' kit. 

Inside, this special Abarth Punto supersport features 'Abarth Corsa by Sabelt' black leather seats, with red and yellow stitchings and gloss black backrest (homologated and lightened in keeping with the car's racing spirit) and an Abarth Blue&MeTM MAP satellite navigation unit with a telemetric function developed in conjunction with Magneti Marelli. Enriching the interiors are the laser-treated aluminium kick plate with special 'supersport' graphics, the stainless steel pedals with Abarth brand, and the leather steering wheel with double red and yellow stitching, just like the seats and the sporty Jaeger driving instruments.

    the fiat punto evo has got a new look as well, they've dumped the black inserts on the bumpers so the distinction between fiat and abarth is greater now. :thumb:

     ???

    The 2012 FIAT Punto Evo now looks like a Grande Punto

    What on earth is going on  :crazy:

    No doubt the body shells will transfer to the Abarth too, as the model reaches old age next year.

    Yeah just found that out. Rang local dealer pretty much as soon as i saw this thread, they only heard about it today apparently and the helpful sales lady is going to e-mail abarth to try and find out even a rough price range. Was going to be ordering the Evo next week but might have to wait just a little bit longer now  ;D Just hope its not tooooo much more expensive, however i think it will prob be over 25k with all of the extra kit  :(

    I think you're not going to be far off with that as a ballpark figure in mind. Will be interesting to see if the bonet is painted matt black as per the blurb or if that's just going to be a sticker.
