Abarth prepares hot EsseEsse rides for 2010 Paris Motor Show
At the upcoming motoring event in the French capital - Paris, Abarth, the in-house tuner for Fiat is preparing two extremely powerful debutants - the Abarth Punto Evo EsseEsse and the Abarth 500C EsseEsse. Both designed to showcase the brand's very best in the performance and handling levels, the new EsseEsse rides represent pure embodiment of athleticism and style.
According to Abarth, the Punto Evo EsseEsse will be fully capable of delivering the truly amazing 180 horsepower and 270 Nm of maximum torque at 3000 revs. Thanks to its great new output figures, the compact athlete will be strong enough to sprint form standstill to 100 km/h in just 7.5 seconds, before reaching a top speed of 216 km/h. In addition to that, the retrofitted Punto Evo will be further reinforced by a sleek set of 18-inch alloys in special titanium-colored design, premium leather seats by Sabelt, and an Abarth Blue&MeTM MAP satellite navigation system with telemetrics by Magneti Marelli.
In the case of 500C, the EsseEsse kit transforms the urban convertible into a genuine open-topped sports car: 160 horsepower, maximum torque of 230 Nm, top speed of 209 km/h and acceleration sprint from 0-100 km/h in just 7.6 seconds. Visually, the Abarth 500C EsseEsse benefits from elegant Campovolo grey and Pista grey two-tone finish with a white chromatic liner, an original Record Monza exhaust silencer, as well as an Abarth Blue&MeTM MAP satellite navigation system with telemetrics.
