Abarth, the firm that found fame tuning Fiats for racing, was officially relaunched as a car company in its own right in Turin, Italy. The event saw the production edition of the brand’s first new road model in 25 years, a 150bhp 1.4 litre Abarth Grande Punto. The evening event also marked the grand opening of the marque’s first official dealership. This dedicated showroom was set to be the first of 100 in Europe.
