Never seen Fiat Punto Abarth (Mk 1)
« on: October 19, 2011, 11:58:20 pm »
Greetings. As the title says, here is a legendary car that never made it in production during it's time.

    Thank god - it looks like something out of Halfrauds!   ;D
    Now that I'm a grown up I drive a sensible grey 595 Competizione with grey leather sabelt seats and yellow brake calipers. It's jolly nice! It's got a name - ' Razzogrigio' Now with a custom S/S group N style exhaust, black Esseesse wheels and a GTT induction kit, all sitting on Eibach springs.

    Still a 160bhp engine with viscodrive would have been a nice addition to that lightweight machine, it would have been very rapid, the Viscodrive unit worked wonders on my Fiat Coupe.

    That Fiat Punto Abarth at that time would be the Grande Punto/Punto EVO Abarth Esseesse of today at our present time...

    Not as cool as the Punto MK1 Integrale by Maggiora. They took the engine and 4wd system of the Delta Integra;e and put it in a Punto GT!.

    it was quite inpressive in real life, don't know if it still exists


    the Abarth kit for the mk1 punto was an official FIAT accessory but it was purely cosmetic and could if you were sad enough be put on a basic 55s or used to ruin a GT :thumbd:

    Remember that Maggiora Punto concept is from 1994, so has obviously dated.

    I liked the Abarth bodykit on the Punto GT.

    I had 3 punto GT's great car. First one was abit of a bad one though. Only had it a month but the other 2 were amazing I sometimes  wonder if I should of kept the last one I had. It truly was mint only had 72000miles on it full service history. I ended up selling it and getting an agp.

    Although I do not regret it in anyway as I have met some amazing people through owning an Abarth also though this amazing site  :thumb:
