Can Fiat Punto Sport touch a speed of 180 KMPH?

Speed thrills with road becoming better with time, thanks to all teh investment, it's tempting most indian drivers to strect their legs in their car. The delight of throttling a a car and seeing it rev and speed up is quite alluring. This unfortunately can be dangerous too. It's in this light we are answering thequestion Can Fiat Punto Sport touch a speed of 180 KMPH?, we believe its best avoided even though the car/s may be capable of achieving top speeds


Can Fiat Punto Sport touch a speed of 180 KMPH?


Can Fiat Punto Sport touch a speed of 180 KMPH?

Theoretically, yes it can as the top speed on speedo is 220 KMPH. There are people who have done this with enough video's on you tube. One such video can be seen i the attached link:

Fiat Punto does touch  the speed of 180 KMPH with the reading on Tacho being 4600 to 4700 RPM. This is much beyond the rated peak power 4000 RPM.
      

Whilst stretching the engine beyond manufacturer listed peak RPM limits will not be dangerous, however such an exercise does put strain on material as they are made to work way past their defined performance limits. This could over time add to your maintenance cost.


However, repeatedly operating engines for long beyond it's redline (top RPM limit) can make engine fail and the same could even lead to fatal accidents.

So whilst the Punto may have the capability to attain a top speed of 220 KMPH, however, it's best avoided.

One should also consider the safety features and road conditions when attempting such as exercise. Yes Punto Sport does come with ABS, EBD and dual front airbags, but will they be sufficient to keep one safe is a question we would not like one to ever experiment.

Punto is a great car in terms of its handling capabilities and  build quality, but still most Indian car are best driven within safe driving limits.

AGENT                                                                The report should also include body diagnostic in addition to engine details
