Abarth 500 Convertible and Abarth Punto EVO Rumored to Debut in Geneva

| |

Rumors of the pending arrival of the Abarth branded Fiat 500C and Punto Evo have been circulating for months, but Italian car magazine Quattroruote is certain now that both models will have their official world premiere at the Geneva Motor Show in about two weeks time from today.

There's nothing official about the two cars (the above photo is a Carscoop photoshop) but we expect to see Abarth's version of the 500 Convertible featuring the same bodykit and mechanical upgrades - including the 1.4-liter turbocharged petrol engine and sportier suspension setup, as its tin-top sibling.

As for the Abarth Punto Evo, aside from the new sheetmetal and interior upgrades of the facelifted model, it is believed that it will benefit from the Fiat Group's new and more powerful, 1.4-liter MultiAir turbo engine with 170 horsepower that recently premiered on the Alfa Romeo MiTo QV (click here for details).
