This hotter Punto is said to be coming next month while the pre-bookings have already started. The vehicle was first showcased at the launch of the Abarth brand in India – 595 Competizione. However, unlike the version showcased at the Abarth’s launch event, Fiat has done some subtle changes. Things like race strips running across the body, the chrome bits around the fog lamps are now highlighted in the glossy contrasting shade. Apart from these, the vehicle is riding on 16-inch diamond-cut Abarth Scorpion alloys, the interiors will be all-black with contrasting red-yellow stitching, Abarth instrument cluster and pedals.
