Super catch @ghost_rider

The blue and Hip-hop black are hot ones. But i feel the medium grey is a lot classy and it stabds out of all, may be it was taken in the best the angle of punto.

Is the fiat logo blue in some shades? or is it just me?

And yes i agree with you Caramello. I seriously am not liking the alloys and i hope they have choices else i will have to go with after market ones.

Does anyone know the PCD? which would be the best brand to go with?

Thanks for the photos!
the rear looks awkward after the chopping it has got

Blue looks best for me out of these, I think white will also look good

Red GP looks smashing! Blue & Black looks good too!

GP buyers will have a tough time deciding on the color

I like the dark grey and black. To me the blue and red variant does not look good at all in those colors. The blue and red shades should have been different. Not sure how the white shade looks though.

After a long time I am seeing a car that looks fantastic in any colour! Punto buyers are going to be royally confused in deciding the car to go in for. The grey one looks smashing! I can see a lot of buyers in Fiat showrooms scartching their heads deciding which colour to take .

I happened to visit Golden Plams resort on Friday, June 12. In the drive way there were four cars lined up with covers on. I could guess the first one as Swift and the others looked a little different.

As I entered the place, I saw a poster mentioning Fiat Training in 4th floor. Thats when I rushed back outside for a closer look at the cars and I saw the GP tucked under the cover.


I also want to share with you guys that there were two GP's and one Swift ZXi and i20 each. Looks like the sales guys will be comparing GP with these vehicles in the showrooms in the coming days.

I must tell you though Fiat didn't want the pix to be rolled out, they had really tucked the car in and the guards were always having a eye on the cars. When a guard saw me approaching the car with a cam, he quickly asked me to not to take any pictures of the car. He really didn't know the kind of pest I am. I did manage to take some pictures, the covers were out on saturday, fiat & tata guys were driving around in the car for testing!.

P.S: I am sure you guys have seen enough pix. Hence not uploading them

The PCD is 98 for all FIAT cars and I am sure this would be the case here also -- 100%

PS: I personally like the alloys -- but still not better than my S10 alloys

Yea, i am already scratching my head here. But only if they got some silver mixes in the steering wheels atleast. The plain black with the audio control is not that smashing to me.

Yes, you are right!. The sales guy from prerana had told me that their training was going to be held at Golden Palms resort.

The punto will sure look red hot in white!.Selecting a color is going to be a big conundrum for folks.
