Abarth has announced the Italian market launch of its recently premiered Abarth 500C and Abarth Punto Evo rides. Both rides are focused on the younger generation enthusiasts and offers remarkable elegance and athleticism.

The Abarth version of the 500C represents a small sporty turbocharged beast fitted with a 1.4-liter four-cylinder engine that delivers an outstanding output of 140-horsepower. Furthermore, the modern pseudo-cabrio mini ride boasts a five-speed sequential paddle-shift transmission and an eye-candy two-tone paint work.

With Abarth Punto Evo, the customer is pleased by a ultra-nimble ride with guaranteed staggering performance and comfort, which packs a strong 165 horsepower MultiAir engine.

Sharing one launch, both sporty Abarth vehicles represent the very best of the brand's spirit and character. The official launch event will be accompanied by an original advertising campaign, created in conjunction with the 515 Creative Shop studio in Turin and identified by the slogan "More power to your senses".
