This car belongs to the boss of Fiat India. Atleast it did till last year. It had a minor fender bender too, moralfibre had posted pics elsewhere. We had been to the plant from for a Fiat Club event.

Somehow i don`t like the front of the car, small headlights, small grill . Its kinda expression less face . However, the rear is decent looking.

No offence but this reminds me of Japanese cars of 90s.
Something like Honda accord.

That aint 164 folks. its a 166, and I am 99% sure its the same car. I am stuck with work tomorrow, if possible, I'll get a pic of it. If anyone have time tomorrow, visit that place, if possible, save it as its super rare in India. I hope I am not wrong on this one!

Here are the pics for those who were doubting me and my knowledge about cars!

Very sad sight indeed!

Had a chat with the owner, he said the car had caught fire and the engine and front is damaged. He's ready to sell it in current condition for Rs 1.5 lakh

Car has manual transmission and Momo Seats with Alfa Romeo logos;
