Novitec Releases Fiat Punto Evo Tuning Package

Novitec Releases Fiat Punto Evo Tuning Package

Thought Novitec was just all about tuning exotic Ferraris? Think again. They have just announced their tuning package for Fiat’s Punto Evo, offering performance and aesthetic modifications for the 1.4-liter and 1.6-liter Punto Evo variants. And we have to say, as Fiat brings their 500 to America, we’re excited to see another option for Fiat tuning. Especially when it’s such a prestigious brand such as Novitec.

Starting with the exterior, Novitec is offering a complete body kit. This includes a front spoiler, side skirts, hood, rear bumper with diffuser and rear roof spoiler. In true Novitec fashion, nothing is overdone but rather kept subtle and clean, sleek and classy. Novitec also offers a coilover option that can lower the Punto Evo anywhere from 1.37-inch to 3-inch. Novitec also offers 17-inch and 18-inch wheel choices for the Fiat.

No Novitec package would be complete without its fair share of performance upgrades. Novitec keeps it fairly simple with basically an ECU upgrade available for the 1.4-liter and 1.6-liter power plants and an exhaust that’s available in 26 (yes, twenty-six) different combinations. If you want a single tip, dual tip or quad tip, Novitec has all 26 different types for you.

For around $560, Novitec will hook you up with their PowerJet 2 auxiliary control unit that takes the stock 1.4-liter from 135-hp and 152 ft-lbs of torque to 160-hp and 181 ft-lbs of torque. And we’re not quite sure why this is, but Novitec’s offering for the 1.6-liter is their Powerrail 5 module (right under $450) which takes the power output to 144-hp and 263 ft-lbs of torque. Our assumption is that the ECU upgrade has a ton more potential on the turbocharged 1.4-liter power plant than it does on the 1.6-liter MultiJet engine.

Red Alert: NOVITEC Tuning for the Fiat Punto Evo

Red Alert: NOVITEC now offers an extensive tuning program for the Fiat Punto Evo. The list of options includes engine tuning for the two turbocharged gasoline engines and for all diesel models. Also part of the customization program for the Italian compact car is a sport exhaust system for a throatier exhaust note, a striking body-styling package, custom-tailored tire/wheel combinations with diameters of 17 and 18 inches and sporty suspension options.

There is no substitute for power except more power. NOVITEC offers a power boost for the 1.4-liter 16V MultiAir turbocharged gasoline engine of the Fiat Punto Evo from standard 99 kW / 135 hp to 118 kW / 160 hp. Simultaneously peak torque grows from 206 to 246 Nm at 1,780 rpm. The power increase is facilitated by the NOVITEC PowerJet 2 auxiliary control unit with innovative plug-and-power technology. It is available for just 419 Euros and cuts the sprint time from rest to 100 km/h to 7.9 seconds while increasing the top speed to 209 km/h.

Following the same principle the Abarth Punto Evo receives a power upgrade from standard 163 hp / 120 kW to 184 hp / 135 kW.

The NOVITEC POWERRAIL 5 modules cost 335 Euros and make all turbodiesel models of the Punto Evo even more fun to drive. Installation is simple and takes just a few minutes. Equipped with a NOVITEC POWERRAIL 5 module the most powerful diesel engine in the lineup, the 1.6-liter 16V MultiJet, puts out 144 hp / 106 kW and produces a peak torque of 356 Nm.

Optimized performance, a thrilling exhaust note and impressive looks are the three most important arguments in favor of the NOVITEC stainless-steel sport mufflers. These mufflers come with an EG operating certificate, eliminating the need for time-consuming and expensive individual technical inspections. The sport exhaust is available in no less than 26 different versions. Nowhere else can Punto Evo owners choose from exhausts with one, two or four exhaust tips. MSRPs start at 200 Euros.

After the NOVITEC tuning treatment the Italian speedster also looks miles from ordinary. The front appears much more aggressive with NOVITEC headlamp moldings and the NOVITEC spoiler, which is optionally available with an additional blade. That impression is further enhanced by the X-one-look hood with power domes and integrated hood scoops.

NOVITEC side sills give the Fiat an even lower and sleeker stance. The rear is upgraded with a rear spoiler and the rear molding attachment. The latter is available in three different versions including an especially striking racing-look version with diffuser fins. All versions of the rear molding can be combined with any NOVITEC sport muffler.

Another important contribution to the thrilling NOVITEC look for the Punto Evo comes from the NOVITEC N10 alloy wheels with ten double spokes. These wheels with diameters of 17 or 18 inches make full use of the available space in the wheel wells. They are available in two versions with silver painted or polished black surfaces. The largest version features size 8Jx18 wheels with size 215/35 R 18 tires. A complete set sells for 1,310 Euros.

As the perfect complement to the sporty low-profile tires NOVITEC offers sport springs for use with the stock shock absorbers or height-adjustable stainless-steel coilover suspensions for the Punto Evo. The lowering rate can be adjusted from 35 to 75 millimeters. The top-of-the-line suspension also allows varying the damper rates.
