There is no substitute for power except more power. Novitec offers a power boost for the 1.4-liter 16V MultiAir turbocharged gasoline engine of the Fiat Punto Evo from standard 99 kW / 135 hp to 118 kW / 160 hp. Simultaneously peak torque grows from 206 to 246 Nm at 1,780 rpm. The power increase is facilitated by the Novitec PowerJet 2 auxiliary control unit with innovative plug-and-power technology. It cuts the sprint time from rest to 100 km/h to 7.9 seconds while increasing the top speed to 209 km/h. Following the same principle the Abarth Punto Evo receives a power upgrade from standard 163 hp to 184 hp.
Optimized performance, a thrilling exhaust note and impressive looks are the three most important arguments in favor of the Novitec stainless-steel sport mufflers. These mufflers come with an EG operating certificate, eliminating the need for time-consuming and expensive individual technical inspections. The sport exhaust is available in no less than 26 different versions. Nowhere else can Punto Evo owners choose from exhausts with one, two or four exhaust tips.
After the Novitec tuning treatment the Italian speedster also looks miles from ordinary. The front appears much more aggressive with Novitec headlamp moldings and the Novitec spoiler, which is optionally available with an additional blade. That impression is further enhanced by the X-one-look hood with power domes and integrated hood scoops. Nocitec side sills give the Fiat an even lower and sleeker stance. The rear is upgraded with a rear spoiler and the rear molding attachment. The latter is available in three different versions including an especially striking racing-look version with diffuser fins. All versions of the rear molding can be combined with any Novitec sport muffler.
Another important contribution to the thrilling Novitec look for the Punto Evo comes from the Novitec N10 alloy wheels with ten double spokes. These wheels with diameters of 17 or 18 inches make full use of the available space in the wheel wells. They are available in two versions with silver painted or polished black surfaces. The largest version features size 8Jx18 wheels with size 215/35 R 18 tires.
As the perfect complement to the sporty low-profile tires Novitec offers sport springs for use with the stock shock absorbers or height-adjustable stainless-steel coilover suspensions for the Punto Evo. The lowering rate can be adjusted from 35 to 75 millimeters. The top-of-the-line suspension also allows varying the damper rates.
