I would assume that remapping on the stock figures to help with the bottom-end should be the way to go; unless the gearbox can take that kind of peak loads.
That's the manufacturer rated input torque. I believe the same C510 gearbox is used even in Fiat cars with 1.3 MJD. Many cars are running with almost 240-250 NM post remap

Could this be true?
...The Fiat Punto Abarth is India’s most powerful hatchback available for sale. Fiat India dealers are now taking orders for the 2018 edition of the Abarth Punto...

There was a similar announcement last year. I booked one and waited for 4 months before cancelling. Fact is no Abarth Punto has been shipped out by Fiat since September 2017.

At the moment fiat has 14 abarth Puntos, 7 each in white and black that is manufactured in 2018 so they are new. I don't think there would be much discounts on offer though.

Well, one of those white ones will (hopefully) soon be mine. Booked last week. Have just received the dealer billing confirmation and VIN of allotted car. Waiting now for shipment and delivery.

That's a great news bro. What's the manufacturing month? When is the delivery?

Congratulations is advance and please accept some envy too from my side

Enjoy the beast!

Thanks for both Waspune!
As per allotted VIN, it is indeed an April 2018 car. I am told that delivery may take up to 20 days.

Many Congratulations!!! Enjoy it to the hilt. Five years down the lane, you might still have the fastest car in that segment.

Congratulations @cogWheel .

If you don't mind sharing , can you post the cost breakup(ex showroom + RTO + insurance ) and any discounts or offers you got ?

Have been able to get about 50K off the original quote. Will PM details once I actually get the car home. With Fiat, one can never be sure.

Fiat Abarth Punto : Official Review-img_20180519_202310.jpg

Took delivery of a Pearl White Abarth Punto from Urs Kar, Mysuru. Manufactured in April 2018. Only accessory added is a reverse camera.
Plan to keep it stock for now.
Will add more pics and details in time.
I am told more cars are in stock at the plant and dealers are taking orders.
Thanks to all TBHP members who shared info here.

Many congrats for getting the beast home. Reverse camera is a nice accessory. I hope you got it aligned with the touchscreen. Other mods can wait as you said. If I could make a suggestion : Get a set of stickier rubber like the MC5s in the stock size. Many options in the 205 55 R16 spec or the lovely PS4 in the 205 50 R16 spec.145 bhp would love them!

Congrats. Good to see that you got the car finally after long wait. Were you in Mangalore few hours back at Nantoor circle? I had spotted brand new Abarth there .

Wow, what a beauty. I'm so happy fiat is still making this car. Clearly they have deep pockets to persist with such low sales.
