    True Sun. They have only 2 products currently and have to do some marketing to get noticed by the media. Limited Edition idea is good but that should not limit to just decals and chromes.

    Do note that S10 LE was launched when GTX was on sale. Do you think that the difference between GTX and S10 is only the Yellow paint, skirting, spoilers and Sachin's Signature? Definitely not. S10 has got the different set of tune and came with a different gear box too. I am expecting something on this line for the Punto Sports LE version. Let us wait and see.

    Maybe they are tuned differently. I am not sure but I think in both the cars, only the Turbo is variable. the valves are not. I am be wrong.
  3. That's a valid point ramjn. All the Palio's had both 4th and 5th gears as overdrive but the S10 came out with only the 5th being overdrive. But not many know that the S10 had a different gear box! And neither did FIAT propagate the major technical changes in the S10 at that time. The prime focus was the Sachin graphics and other visual gizmos.

    I too hope for the same.

    As people say the 2012 punto is having better pick up than earlier, I expect the same in the new 90 Hp also. It should be able to take advantage of the less weight compared to its bigger brother, whatever reason it may be. But not with Sachin's signature this time since he sold his Ferrari;)

    Lol..!! This new 90 HP will kill upcoming Ferrari F70 even before it is born. just wait for 2 days.
    What are you talking Ram:uh? If they think of changing drive ratio, still it's the same torque band they have to play in. If they do it for 1-2-3 gears for 0-100 timings of 12 secs, it's top range will be blunted & 160 km/hr will be DEAD end!
    What you are wishing & The best trade of both the world's can be fulfilled only one way. 6 Speed. Doesn't even need 2 ltr MJD's. This 90 HP will do 0-100 with in 12 secs & will easily hit the top speed of 220 km/hr. Sure FE is another added boost!
