My Abarth Punto Evo

Have the car for around 2 months now.
I really wanted a grey one with white stripes, but there was a 3 months waiting list, and I've already sold my Mk2 HGT.
Can't say I'm disappointed with a white one
~3000km on the clock. Running great.

A photo from the day I picked the car up


Some random photos








Some with more Abarths (mine is on the right)




There are (to this day) 50 Abarths over here. 5 of them (inc. the car used for test drives, and the one in the showroom) are Puntos. I was the first person to take delivery
Thanks DAV1D thanked for this post

Re: My Abarth Punto Evo

Thanks guys

Here is a short video I took a while back. Was just trying to test the camera mount. Vibrates more than I expected.
And yes I know about the keys
I have a new keyring now, with a detachable ring, so when I'm driving the rest of the keys don't get in the way.

Re: My Abarth Punto Evo

Out of curiosity, is there an obviously noticeable performance difference between the Abarth & your old MK2 HGT?

Re: My Abarth Punto Evo

Well, the APE has 30bhp or so more, but it's a bit heavier.
0-60 time is down by 0.7 of a second. 7.9 for the APE, 8.6 for the HGT if I'm not mistaken (Didn't put it to the test, since it's not my cup of tea anyways).
To be honest, this isn't much.
But the power delivery... Now that's a different story. The instant turbo power is really something else

The old car had 16.4 kgm@4300 rpm, this has 25kgm@2500 rpm (with sport mode on). It's a noticeable difference
The power just comes from almost no revs at all, all the way to the top. Puts a big smile on my face every time.

Interesting, the only reason I ask is that back in the days of the old MK1 Punto I had the GT, and so far none of the newer sporty Puntos have come close to it for performance, even before I had it tuned. Iím hoping to tune my Evo sporting fairly soon so will be interesting to see what gains are to be had, apparently a remap adds about 25BHP bringing it up to near enough the Abarth power output.
I would have bought the Abarth Evo if they had only released it sooner!

Re: My Abarth Punto Evo

Went for a drive just for the fun of it
Pictures taken by a good friend of mine, I did some editing in iPhoto.

This isn't the main road obviously, just an inner park trail / back road.















Thanks DAV1D thanked for this post
