Fiat South Africa Introduces Limited Edition Abarth Punto Scorpione [With Video]

Fiat South Africa has introduced the Limited Edition Fiat Abarth Punto Scorpione, targeting local performance junkies.

According to Fiat the Abarth Punto Scorpione is intended for a more mature audience that wishes to express their sporting spirit more discreetly and elegantly, but with no intention to settle for less.

This new Limited Edition, with only 99 vehicles produced World-wide, is distinguished by a ton-sur-ton livery where the Scorpione Black of the body becomes matt on the bonnet and roof. Only 10 of these units will be available in South Africa.

The Abarth Punto Scorpione is equipped with a 1.4 MultiAir engine boosted, with the help of a Garrett turbo, to 132 kW at 5,750 r/min and a maximum torque of 270 Nm at 2,500 r/min. Acceleration to 100 km/h takes just 7.5 seconds and reaches a top speed of more than 216 km/h whilst still returning  claimed  CO2 emissions of 142 g/km. Drive to the front wheels is through a 6-speed close ratio manual transmission.

Further performance enhancements come from the modified ride and safety. Floating, perforated and self-ventilating front disc brakes with oversized four-piston yellow brake calipers, perforated rear disc brakes and high-performance front brake pads are 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 and rear sections, is taken from the now famous “Esseesse” kit.

Inside, the Abarth Punto Scorpione features “Abarth Corsa by Sabelt” black technical fabric and partially Alcantara trimmed 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, mirroring the seats. Feedback is provided to the driver by way of the sporty Jaeger driving instruments.

The Abarth Punto Scorpione is available exclusively from Arnold Chatz cars in Johannesburg and retails for R365 000 including VAT.
