A screaming price for this unique Fiat Punto, almost able to come close to the price list of a Ferrari, just like that. The Punto, we know well, is an iconic car of the Turin-based manufacturer, which together with the 500 and Panda has done and continues to do the history of Italian motoring.
A creation that today could come out again from the production lines (perhaps in a Cross version) of Stellantis, the newborn automotive giant, born from the famous merger between FCA and PSA, of which we have talked so much. We have often investigated issues concerning a possible return of the Fiat Punto to the car market, in a new and perhaps even electric variant, following in the footsteps of its cousins, the award-winning Opel Corsa-e and Peugeot e-208, daughters of PSA.
Today, however, the Punto model we are talking about comes from passion for the rally world of the Fiat Sport division, a love dating back to the year 2000, which led the company to design and launch the Punto S1600 Rally in question in 2004, designed precisely to face the WRC. The legendary Punto HGT was the basis for the construction of this model, a sporty version of the classic Turin subcompact, famous all over the world.
The engine under the hood of the car is a 4-cylinder capable of unleashing the exceptional power of 215 horsepower, a real small car, a sort of miniature supercar, which, however, did not have the hoped-for success and in fact its life was not long at all, on the contrary. The model was soon ‘replaced’ by the Big Point S2000.
Yet, in the few years in which it was produced, the House has produced real pearls that still exist today. And that they have become jewels with a staggering price, as we said at the beginning. The Punto S1600 Rally that we see in these photos for example is on sale at the Ruote da Sogno website, a company in Emilia Romagna that deals with tuning also applied to beautiful and ancient vintage cars, for the ‘modest’ figure of 135.000 euro.
The Fiat Punto in question is bright blue, the entire exterior of the car has been filled with sports stickers, its livery is a characteristic full-blown racing livery. Who will be the lucky buyer willing to pay that much for this little gem from the year 2000?
