Here’s a customized Fiat Punto Abarth, which is way more powerful than the stock model. Take a look at it here.
Fiat Punto Abarth was among the most affordable performance hatchbacks ever offered in the Indian market. Like all the other performance-oriented cars that were launched in India, this hot hatch did not do well in terms of overall sales. There are still some people around the country who have bought this car and are managing to maintain it in an immaculate condition. Some owners thought that the Fiat Abarth Punto is not powerful enough, thus they customized it to make it go even faster. Here we have one such beautifully modified Fiat Punto Abarth from Kerala.
The images of this smart-looking hot hatch have been shared by Vishnu Prasad on Instagram who is also the owner of this car. Like many Abarth owners, Vishnu has also removed all the Abarth badges that came from the factory on the side profile of the car. It now seems like a regular Fiat Punto except for the badging on the front and rear end.
The owner of this Punto Abarth has also made a lot of tweaks to enhance the performance of the car. It gets Stage-2 Remap from Code6 along with a custom downpipe. The stock air filter has been replaced by a K&N unit, and the intercooler has also been upgraded to a bigger one. Moreover, the regular suspension system has also been replaced by Eibach lowering springs, and it gets stainless steel chassis braces to enhance the rigidity of the suspension system.
It sits on 17-inch Abarth Essesse alloy wheels with Michelin PS4 tyres. At the back, it features a custom made diffuser with Abarth Essesse-style spoiler. Inside, the performance hatchback features short-throw gear-shifter, a touchscreen infotainment system, flat-bottom steering wheel and more. Apart from these subtle tweaks, everything else remains the same. Mechanically, this modified Fiat Punto Abarth derives power from a 1.4-litre turbocharged petrol motor that produces power and torque outputs of 190bhp and 280 Nm, respectively. On the other, the stock Fiat Punto Abarth puts out a peak power output of145bhp and max torque of 212 Nm only.
