Well we didn't have an interactive discussion but I was hoping that they kicked one off. Sadly it didn't happen and we were too busy checking out the plant which is fabulous and spread over some 9 lakh square meters (approx).

Those Grand Punto's were test cars or manufactured units. If later, then they are getting very close to launch.

Great trip. This is probably the first heritage and historical car company ever to project the same to the Indian public
