Very very fast off the lights. Good torque, accelleration - very impresive. Great top speed for a little car. A few simple mods and it can look great.
Handles really badly standard. Goes through front tyres like no bodies business (not really a bad thing though!).
The Fiat Punto 1.4 GT Turbo is a fantastic car in my opinion. Very fast in all aspects. Turbo lag fairly minimal due to a small turbo so very rapid at the lights and the track. I cant praise it enough for speed. A few easy and cheap mods can improve it even more so! Its handling is pants however. New springs and shocks are a must. My engine was dead when I bought it, (previous owner didn't get a serious problem looked at quick enough!) but a quick replacement and problem solved. Not a problem since. Would definatly tell a friend!
