    Yes the Esseesse is pretty much the top of the line Abarth with 180hp. Sure they have the Scorpione & Supersport model's but the engine tune is the same as esseesse. The car in the pic does seem like the Evo as it has the Evo tail lamps too, it must have taken a LOT of effort to modify a normal Punto to look like a Abarth Punto Evo Esseesse :). I guess they are testing the top spec model to see how comfortably it can run on our fuel - normal & premium ones.

    Wondering what the car is doing in Coimbatore though. From what I heard the worst fuel quality is in the Northern states.

    i dont know how come "Evo" version of Abarth?? I mean the Evo has been discontinued/phased out and the refreshed punto(old) has been launched worldwide....
    Although i would love the news to be true but once again take it with a pinch of salt as coimbatore is a major hub for automotive modifications.

    Guys the car isn't brought down by Fiat. It's there for something else.

    I dont think the updated (classic) Linea will come with the 1.6 MJD. That would be reserved for the new generation Linea.
