Hi guy, I have a good deal on a set of Abarth 595 pista brakes from 2019.
They are 284mm vented and drilled rotors.
Do they fit the Punto GT in terms of mounting holes and fitting the car brake lines?
I have 16" whells, so I think its more that enough space

Are these brembo 4 pot calliper brakes or are they just red painted calipers from an abarth

Things can be made to fit but I’d be inclined to say that you’d not be able to just bolt them on and they’d fit

Ohhh I didn't knew that they had "normal" brakes.
Not worth it to put then? They are bigger than the stock GT ones still

Maybe but the brakes you have already fit and work, there is no sayings that the new calipers are any more powerful than what you already have, a few mm bigger discs have a slight affect on the breaking torque but overall the expense of the new brakes probably isn’t worth it, especially if you need to pay for adaptations or engineering for them to fit or find they won’t actually fit at all
