It's a yearly thing this, with the Fiat Punto. Flip the calendar, give the car some new fashionable bits, and there you have a new car for the rest of the year. The MY2013 Punto Sport, the latest cosmetically-enhanced version of the Punto, follows in the same vein.

Mechanically similar to the diesel 90HP Punto, the Punto Sport is a limited-run model that is available in two shades - red or white, with a contrasting black roof, contrasting ORVMs (white mirrors on a red car, and vice versa), sport decals, sport pedals, sport carpets with red stitching, "Punto" engraved on the door sills, a roof spoiler and a chrome-tipped exhaust. None of these additions make it go any faster, mind.

How much does this "sporty" new Punto cost? Rs 7.60 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi), to answer your question. Would you have one?
