Abarth Unveils Limited-Edition Punto Super-Sport

Abarth Unveils Limited-Edition Punto Super-Sport

Abarth has just unveiled its tuned up version of the Fiat Punto, called the Punto Super-Sport, a car which is not offered in the U.S. for now, but might make its way across the pond. 

The Abarth Super-Sport builds off of the Fiat Punto EVO, using the same 1.4-liter turbocharged engine. In the Punto EVO the engine is rated at 164 hp, but in the Super-Sport the same engine gets a bump up to 180 hp. A six-speed manual transmission is mated to the engine, and the whole package will propel the car from 0-62 mph in 7.5 seconds.

For aesthetics, the Super-Sport gets a two tone paint job, offering either grey with black racing stripes, or glossy black with matte black racing stripe. 17-inch alloy wheels and “SuperSport” badges complete the look.

The interior has a long-list of standard features, such as leather seats, automatic climate control and Fiat’s Blue and Me connectivity setup.

Only 199 Super-Sport models will be made for European markets, making the car a rare sight. It should sell for around $27,000.
