Abarth announced that it will bring new goodies to the upcoming Paris Auto Show, in the form of esseesse kits for the Punto Evo and 500C models.

The esseesse badge means that the Abarth Punto Evo packs 180 hp and a maximum torque of 270 Nm. These figures allow the hatch to leave the 62 mph mark behind in 7.5 seconds and offer a top speed of 134 mph (216 km/h).

The vehicle comes with special features such as a special paint called Campovolo Grey, 18 inch alloy rims that use a esseesse design and a titanium finish. The interior of the car has been fitted with Abarth Corse by Sabelt seats that use a black leather finish. The model also offers an Abarth Blue&Me MAP satellite navigation system that comes with a telemetrics system co-developed with Magneti Marelli.

The Abarth 500C esseesse lets the driver play with 160 hp and 230 Nm of torque. The little topless vehicle can hit 62 mph in 7.6 seconds and has a top speed of 130 mph (109 km/h). The vehicle is dressed in a Campovolo Grey and Pista Grey two-tone finish and also features the Magneti Marelli special telemetrics satnav system. The car uses a Record Monza exhaust that allows the engine to scream when it passes 4,000 rpm.
