The Abarth Punto is claimed to need only 8.8 seconds for the dash to 100 km/h.

The Abarth Punto will be powered by a 1.4-liter T-Jet turbocharged petrol engine capable of 145 hp and 212 Nm. Paired to a 5-speed manual gearbox, the hot-hatch claims to accelerate to 100 km/h in 8.8 seconds, and does the 0-1000 m run in 30.4 seconds. Fiat claims a fuel efficiency of 16.3 km/l.

Fiat will offer the Abarth Punto in two colors – Black and White. Both colors get contrast wing mirror caps, body decals, a racing stripe and 16-inch ‘Scorpion’ alloy wheels. They also have their ride heights lowered to 155 mm, and get disc brakes on all wheels.
