I guess Moralfiber had seen a Grandepunto at the Ranjangaon plant. Has anyone seen any test mules in and around pune?? If they plan to launch it next year, something should have started. Isn't it?

Default Grande Punto spied

Hey guys, Happened to be a the Duke's retreat lonavla on saturday afternoon, when 15 guys looking for a highway halt came along in 2 white Grande Puntos and 1 crimson Linea. didnt get pictures of the linea as it was hidden and with funny graphics all over. but here's the Punto. I didn't reallu like the quality of the materials atleast from the outside and the handles seemed really flimsy. however, the instument cluster is impressive.

note: if im duplicating a post, please move this, couldn't find one for the grande punto.

A vehicle without any camouflage is generally a good sign. So is this a sign of some sorts?
