In addition to the Abarth 695 ‘Assetto Corse’ and the new Abarth 500 range, Abarth will also showcase the new Limited Edition Punto Scorpione. Only 199 vehicles produced. The ton-sur-ton livery looks stunning. The Scorpione Black of the body becomes matt on the bonnet and roof. The glossy black “passband” element stands out on the roof, with a hand-polishing treatment carried out at Abarth&C. itself, with a view to ensuring customisation with genuine craftsmanship.
Equipped with a 1.4 MultiAir engine boosted to 180 HP (132 kW) at 5750 rpm and with a maximum torque of 270 Nm at 2500 rpm, the Abarth Punto Scorpione reaches a top speed of more than 216 km/h and accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in just 7.5 seconds.
Further contributions to performance come from the modified ride and safety, as well as the adoption of floating, perforated and self-ventilating front disc brakes with oversized four-piston yellow brake calipers, perforated rear disc brakes, high-performance front brake pads, combined with glossy black 18″ alloy wheels and front and rear Koni shock absorbers with FSD (Frequency Selective Dumping) valve and specially lowered springs. The exhaust pipe, oversized in the central section, is taken from the now famous “Esseesse” kit says Abarth.
Inside, this special Abarth Punto Scorpione features “Abarth Corsa by Sabelt” black technical fabric seats, with red and yellow stitching and matt black backrest, type-approved and lightened in keeping with the car’s sporting spirit. Enriching the interiors are the aluminium kick plate, the stainless steel pedal unit with Abarth shield, and the leather steering wheel with double red and yellow stitching, just like the seats and the sporty Jaeger driving instruments.
