I never knew that Abarth had shut shop!! They were running as FIAT AUTO CORSE. The Grande Punto looks mindblowing.

Well here is another link to what Abarth can do to cars - Palio Cup

How the hell can fiat draw somuch power from a tiny 1.4 L engine?? Technically, does good fuel allow you to tune the car to such a perfection?

Yes. Good fuel helps. Its amusing to see european cars detuned in the U.S stating the fuel quality is not good.(and further detuning when in India).
Think Honda S2000 for highest output from naturally aspirated engine (240 HP in 2.0L)
