Punto GT
The really quite surprisingly rapid, turbo hatch & successor of the Uno Turbo.

Sub zero for me.

Ticks the 90's retro cool box like a cinq, but has a certian "those in the know" factor.

Re: FIAT Punto GT

Fairly cool. As a hot hatch, I'd associate it with boy racers, which harms its coolness.

Re: FIAT Punto GT

i hear that, but there is a reason why 'boy racers' like them, same as the nova back in the day.. Its because its awesome, and i would say now the nova is older and you don't see them often they are positively chilly. Punto falls into same category for me - rarely see a mk1 at all these days let alone a GT - & most of the properly chavved boy racer GT's have died from abuse - generally speaking GTs now are decent cars, yes they often are tuned and lowered and have wheels but gone are the days of silly bodykitted, lexus lighted GTs

Re: FIAT Punto GT

Comparing the Punto GT to the other "hot" hatches of the time is a waste of time.

The Saxo VTR VTS for example. So poorly put together it made the 106GTi look good. Pedals too close together, handled like a badger on a frozen duck pond and the interior smelled like old tuperware on a hot day.

The Punto was better designed, better engineered, quicker, faster, better looking and because it was five insurance groups higher and Fiat never needed to do a 0% finance offer the boy racers mostly avoided them.

A few managed to sell enough drugs to get one and modify it but it was a Redline ten of the best car rather than a Max Power ethos.

Three of the best cars I have ever owned and one of mine was simply terrible.
