Fiat and Abarth are coming fully loaded to the Bologna Motor Show armed with barrel full of special edition 500s and Puntos. We’ve already touched on the 500 Competizione, the 500 Turismo, and the Abarth 695 Assetto Corse so now we’re pointing the proverbial spotlight on the fourth model headed to Bologna: the Abarth Punto Scorpione Limited Edition.

This particular model is being described as a tribute model to "everyone who loves to pit themselves against any kind of challenge in a never-ending search for speed and performance both on the track and facing a downhill road."

Dressing the part of a sinister-looking, all-black limited edition Abarth, the Punto Scorpione is poised to steal the show, not only because it has such an awesome name, but more so because it will be presented with the “Abarth Nitro” winter kit that will come with plenty of winter-themed accessories, including, but not limited to, the “Nitro Powered by Abarth” snowboard.

Adding more touches to the 99-piece model is a two-tone Nero Scorpione livery that’s enhanced by a special matte black paintwork on the bonnet and roof with special glossy black graphics for the roof and the bonnet. Inside, the special enhancements continue in the form of "Abarth Corsa by Sabelt" black leather seats with red and yellow stitching, a matte black backrest, a leather steering wheel with its own red and yellow stitching, Jaeger driving instruments, and a laser-treated aluminium kick plate with special graphics.

Under its hood, the Scorpione Limited Edition is powered by a 1.4-liter MultiAir engine that develops 180 horsepower and 199 lb/ft of torque with a 0-62 mph time of 7.5 seconds and a top speed of 134 mph.

Wow, a new Abarth! I really admire the cuteness of this vehicle even on its exclusivity, and I noticed that it already looks great on that body paint. Well, I just only hope that its engine is impressive as well.
