Cool Welcome to the Cool Wall: Lets add more cars!

Ironically, we start up our wall when not only did Top Gear already stop showing it, but then Top Gear ended completely too.

So I guess this is a tribute to a show that will be seriously missed....

Anyway, enough of that - let's get on to the important stuff.

How to get a model on the board

We obviously can't have every derivitive of each car, so don't submit things like 1.2, 1.4 etc etc - just keep it generic, or go for the interesting ones

To start with, let's just take FIATs - in the future we could branch out.

So - submit your ideas below, I need:
  1. The model (duh!)
  2. A few words about it.
  3. Attach a few (unmodded if pos) photos of it.
  4. That's it!

The mod team will keep an eye on this thread and if you submit something that fits the bill, expect it on the board very soon

For people wondering about the voting, it updates every 15 mins for now - if this really takes off, I'll look at doing live updates.

nJoy!

FIAT Grande Punto Eleganza.

Launched in late 2005, the Grande Punto was the 3rd car to bear the Punto nameplate, replacing the successful Punto mk2.

Styled by Giugiaro, the Grande Punto allegedly drew inspiration from Maserati, and was generally considered to be the best looking supermini in production at the time.

The luxury Eleganza model was available with a 1.4 litre petrol engine, in various states of tune, plus diesel and semi-automatic variants. The very specification of the Eleganza was very high, with rear parking sensors, automatic dual zone climate control, electric lumbar support adjustment, Fiats' Blue & Me Bluetooth system, and luxurious velour upholstery all included as standard.

But is it cool?

The GP Eleganza is far more underrated and therefore more interesting than the mk1 GT. And it's discreet, so only those in the know will be able to identify it as an Eleganza, lol!

But cool for a people carrier doesn't mean it's a cool car.

Re: Welcome to the Cool Wall: How to get cars added...

We'll have to agree to disagree on that 1, lol! With regards to cars appearing on the cool wall: I don't have any pictures, but how about the 90s Coupe?

Re: Welcome to the Cool Wall: How to get cars added...

you can turn a people carrier in to a surf van, so if you say people carriers are not cool that would make surf vans not cool

Your 5 mates that want a Maccy D's but don't have a driver's license would think a Multipla was cool

Inclined to agree

It doesn't seem that much different from an original..
