    Looking forward for the launch and report. If you do get a chance to speak to Fiat guys ask if there are mechanical changes to the new Sport version and also when are they going to bring bigger engines into existing product line-up. Oh and also ask about the small car - Is it scheduled for 2013?

    It was a good launch of FIAT CAFFE @ Pune, Koregaon Park. It was just short of being Grand though. Myself and Kedar were present at the venue along with Media, FIAT dignities and the Showroom + Service centre(exclusive Fiat) owners Millennium motors.

    Fiat also launched the so called Punto 90HP sports version in white, red and black. If this is called sports version then i would call Nimish's and Kedars Punto a super duper sports version ;)

    Coming soon - the pics :)
