Those alloys are to drool over, I think I will buy the car (if I have the money), then I'll bring it home, and then dismantle the alloys only to frame them and put up on the wall of my drawing room...

Hey, just read that the Punto is not a car produced by Abarth, but by Fiat using Abarth badge. Would that be correct? My source was, as usual wikipedia!
BTW, those alloys for some reason resemble a soccer ball to me.
Lovely car nonetheless.

@rjalihal : What you have recntly come to know is true. Indeed Punto is made by fiat. Abarth is the company owned tuning house and they develop tuned versions of the company's production line. For more references, Abarth is to Fiat what AMG is to Mercedes, and , what M division is to BMW.

What am I doing in India????? "The" car is there in Italy.

I need those alloys to come to India at the bare minimum, let alone the mouth watering engine!!
