Abarth Punto Evo esseesse Unleashed
I’ve always liked Abarth’s work and their latest project is just as impressive as the last ones we’ve talked about. The car in this picture is the hardcore version of the Punto Evo, dubbed esseessee. They’ve installed a performance kit that raises the output of the 1.4-liter turbocharged engine to an impressive 178 hp.
They also upgraded the ECU and now the car does the 0-62 mph sprint in only 7.5 seconds, on its way to a top speed of 134 mph. If you’re interested in fuel consumption, the car returns 47.1 mpg UK while CO2 emissions are 142 g/km. That entire horsepower is sent to the wheels in the front through the 6-speed manual gearbox and you get to choose from two modes: Normal or Sport.
Other modifications that they brought over the regular Punto Evo include the floating self-ventilated front discs while the ones in the back are cross drilled. In addition, they’ve installed a more aggressive bodykit that looks very masculine.
The Punto Evo will set you back 16,852 pounds and if you want to get this esseessee kit, prepare to pay another 3000 pounds.
