Thumbs up Grande Punto Ltd Ed 2007

Anyone else seen these?

I was at my local garage earlier (Thames Slough) putting my 100HP in for some servicing & I walked past one on the way home.

Well... it looks very sexy! I checked on the Fiat website & they are a limited edition with metallic paint, a bodykit, alloys, spoiler & the Blue&Me system (so you can use your phone via Bluetooth & also plug in your MP3 player using the car stereo system). The one I saw was black/grey with a funky go faster stripe along the whole of the car & down the sides. Generally I don't approve of those but it looked quite good.

All for £7,795. I was impressed!

Apparently the offer is only around until 31st July but the Fiat website doesn't give any other information on the car (i.e. engine size) except what it says here. Anybody else got any information? I'm very curious (which I shouldn't be really seeing as I already have a lovely car)!!!

i think that it is only an active but has had those parts put on it, if i am correct because it does not have the fog lights on it.

Re: Grande Punto Ltd Ed 2007

My guess is its a active sport with the extra kit added. I.E 1.4 8v engine

Re: Grande Punto Ltd Ed 2007

It certainly is a great deal. Im assuming they are aiming this at younger drivers given the spec so i would guess at it having the 1.2 engine. Diesels arent appealing to most young drivers if they want something sporty so i doubt the 1.3 will feature and the 1.4 will probably be high on insurance and would cost more than 7,795.

Would never swap a Panda 100bhp for one thats for sure.

Re: Grande Punto Ltd Ed 2007

The 1.4 8v (77bhp I believe) is only 1 insurance group higher than the 1.2. Know which one I would choose if I had the choice. Still as flat as a fart but a whole lot better than the 1.2.

Re: Grande Punto Ltd Ed 2007

I think what attracted me is the paint job.

How shallow of me.

Who knows - maybe I'll get something similar on the 100HP. Or is that just overkill?

Is this the 'stripe' limited edition? I saw one in grey in my local dealer.

Re: Grande Punto Ltd Ed 2007

does it have the kit that is on this orange car?

https://www.fiatforum.com/grande-pun...ody-kit-4.html

if yes then normally it is on an active as the side skirts cannot be connected to those on the models with the sporting side skirts

Re: Grande Punto Ltd Ed 2007

The stripe kit looks exactly like the ones on those Puntos & the bodykit looks the same too.

I forgot all about the 8v, that is highly possible. I would choose the 1.4 8v as well over the 1.2, more potential if nothing else.

Re: Grande Punto Ltd Ed 2007

In my opinion of course!
