Fiat grande punto Sign In

me and my fiance just bought a 2010 fiat grande punto multijet 1.3 diesel woth 46k on it, in hopes it would be a nice reliable car for us to have for once as our other cars are classics and not so reliable. I dont know if this is the right part of the forum to post this but here goes.
Firstly we bought this car the Saturday just been, took it for a test drive abd it drove perfect the while car was pristine, we did the the dvla checks and previous Mot checks and it only ever had small problems so we thought it would be perfect for us!
We then took the car home from Peterborough to kings lynn and everything was perfect it ran great.
Next morning we got in to go show off our new car tto some family and it didnt start first time (wichh we are used to in our older cars) we put it down to it being cold. Tried again and straight away theres like a a sound coming from the engine like a metal knocking noise and then we saw this huge cloud of smoke coming from the exhaust which covered the car within seconds and the street, my fiance revved it and when the revs are up the engine makes a whistling noise aswell.
Needless to say we are very angry!
Could anyone tell me what the problem might be, nothing really comes up online, the best I can find is maybe a problem with the turbo?
