    Initially, I was so disappointed when the photoshop version of avventura was published. However, the actual revealing of the concept has changed my perception completely. Well done FIAT, once again. I just hope that there is no difference in the production version of this car. The car is awesome as is, atleast by the way it looks.

    Isn't that oxidation layer that forms over cast iron rather than rusting?

    Isn't rust the stuff that is formed by oxidation of iron? :confused:
    But as you say, rusting of the brake discs is normal when the brakes are not used and will go away as soon as the brakes are used.

    BTW, the avventura on display at the caffe last week didn't even have the brake pedals and clutch connected. They were just dummy ones which when pressed went all the way in and didn't spring back, So those brakes would never have been used from the time they were fitted. :-D

    Amazing pictures and Avventura looks pretty impressive. Thanks to everyone who have shared this mind blowing picture collection. Wish Avventura is priced right and changes fortune for FIAT India.

    Why not wait for sometime.
    Since Abarth brand as such has already launched, I am sure Alloys and other items should be available by year end.

    I can cite an example in my (medical) language.

    Having chest pain (known as angina if due to heart) because of insufficient blood supply to the heart muscles is not same as heart muscles getting damaged (known as myocardial infarction or heart attack) due to insufficient blood supply. In the latter, a patient suffers actual damage to the heart.

    I have observed that this oxidation occurs minutes after we wash the car. Its so rapid that sometimes I have not even finished washing the car when I can see the discs getting orange layer over them. Rust is when the surface of the disc gets corroded and this is a terminal damage to the brake discs.

    AFAIK, this oxidation does not progresses to rust in these discs. :)
