|Colour||Grigio Steel Silver Metallic|
A superb Fiat Punto HGT 1.8 16v. 1 owner from new and just 51294 miles. We usually wouldn't sell a car of this age, our speciality is cars from the 70s, 80s and 90s...however, this little Fiat was just too good to resist. As with most small sporty Fiats, we are sure that this model will achieve classic status over the next few years as good examples will just become more and more difficult to find.
First registered on the 2nd January 2001, this 1 owner car was ordered and collected from the main Fiat dealership, Lisles Of Welwyn. Ordered with a factory fitted Electric Tilt/Slide Sunroof, the factory wait time for this particular car was 4 months. Already fitted with Air Conditioning, we would imagine that to find one with a sunroof as well would be quite a difficult task.
Finished in Grigio Steel Metallic with Charcoal/Blue sports seats, the understated colour scheme looks superb. Still wearing all of its original factory fitted body panels, the car is very straight and has nice linear panel gaps. The paint has stood the test of time very well and can only be described as excellent, with only the odd very minor marks being visible under closer scrutiny. The interior is just lovely throughout. The carpets are like new, having been covered with 2 sets of mats since day one. All the plastics are scuff and damage free. The headlining is unmarked and the car has never been smoked in...it smells fresh and the cigarette lighter has never been used. The boot and parcel shelf are exceptionally clean and damage free. The seats are excellent with only the drivers seat lower bolster showing a very small amount of softening. The material is still like new. Internally, it really is a very special place to be...
Having been correctly serviced and maintained throughout its life, the car drives superbly and without fault. The 16v engine pulls very strongly and linked with a very direct and positive gear change, its very easy to move the car along at quite a swift pace. The car drives arrow straight, with no rattles, knocks or creaks...it really does drive exceptionally well. Hopefully you will see from the service history below, just how well this lovely little car has been looked after.

Every one of the above is documented and stamped correctly in the service book. In addition to this we have every single MOT since new!
The car is complete with the full owners book pack, 2 keys, radio security card, V5 showing no previous owners, fully stamped service book, all old MOT's and a host of invoices from Fiat to back up the history.
We do appreciate that there are cars advertised for less, however we very much doubt that you would find a better example for sale today.
