“Punto Gt Turbo 1996 P Reg Rosso Red ”

Written on: 05/03/2019 by djechouk (1 review written)

great little car owned since 2009 never let me down in all that time usual parts need to be replaced as with any car so keep on top of that and you should be good regular services are a must, I do oil & filter change at every 3000 miles to keep my turbo in good condition, have just had a load of work done to it to keep it well maintained, so once in a while you do have to spend the cost of a full service, parts are becoming harder to find but if you go on ebay should be able to find most things, this is a specialist car so I wouldn't let just any garage work on it better to go to a fiat specialist in my experience, im sure its faster than the factory 0-60 time, some have been known to rust away but mine seems to be ok, think its the earlier models, electrics have never failed, sunroof still works, there is rust in the sunroof mechanism, probably the worst thing I can think of on the whole car, cant really fault this car as long as you get one that has been looked after, the turbo is buried in the engine bay so is a pain job but not too bad for a competent mechanic, that's probably the biggest money job is if the turbo goes but compared to new cars its cheap. this is a great car to modify very easily with the seb chip and a few modifications, i have seen some up to 500bhp, if you do modify them just make sure you know what you are doing as that's when most of them go bang. handling is not great if you go fast around the corners you do get oversteer but its easy to control and makes it a fun car to drive, low insurance good on petrol (as long as you don't floor it) and best of all it super fast, even 2 litre cars cant beat the gt. Only 230 left in England and Ireland total, only 55 registered on the roads right now, and 175 declared SORN. it seems everybody remembers the Renault 5 turbo and all wanted that car, this is the car everyone forgot and went under the radar, its kind of like a sleeper car as it looks like a normal mk1 punto or sporting and people get shocked when they realise how fast it is, real soon there be hardly any left :-) there are some still coming up on ebay between 2k-3.5k I would highly recommend it to any car enthusiast.
