At 2010 Geneva Motor Show Fiat and its in-house tuning arm Abarth will come with a pair of new and hot models. The first is the new 500 Cabrio which comes with a 140 hp- 206 nm 1.4 liter Multiair engine which can does zero to 100 km/h in 7.9 seconds and has a top speed of 205 km/h. The next is the new Punto Evo which comes with 165 horsepower and a six-speed manual gearbox and does 215 km/h.
This elegant and dynamic car is packed with Abarth racing spirit and the latest performance technology. The Abarth 500C is more than just a developed version of its Fiat counterpart. On the contrary, it represents a strategic choice by Abarth. With it, the company is making clear advances towards those members of the female public who are seeking not only design and elegance but a good dose of sports performance too.
Both new models will go on sale over the next few months through Abarth’s official dealer network in Europe and Japan, closely followed by other markets, and boosting the company’s already excellent results for 2009.
