FIAT PUNTO 1.2 S Cabriolet 1995


The Fiat Punto is a supermini car (B-segment) produced by the Italian manufacturer Fiat from 1993 to 2018, spanning over three generations.

First, second and third-generation Puntos
Production of the first generation Punto was 3.429 million units, second generation 2.96 million units, and third generation 2.67 million units.

The Punto was designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro, and originated as a 1990 design proposal for Renault’s project X57, which would become the Renault Clio. When Giugiaro’s proposal was not chosen, he took the design to Fiat, who accepted it. The Punto was available as a three-door or five-door hatchback, a two-door cabriolet and a three-door panel van.

As the majority of the new Fiat group models, the suspension was all independent, composed of MacPherson struts at the front and trailing arms at the rear.

Entry level in the Punto range were the 1.1 and 1.2 L petrol engines and the 1.7 diesel engine. The 1.2 engine’s actual capacity is 1242 cc, available in three versions. The first, was fitted in the Punto ELX 75 and produced 75 hp (56 kW) at 6000 rpm while the second, fitted to Punto ELX 85 produced 86 hp (64 kW) at 6000 rpm.

A cabriolet (convertible) version was also available; built by Bertone (rather than at the main Fiat factory), it featured an electric-powered fully retracting roof and was one of the cheapest open-top cars in the world at the time. In Europe, the car was also made with a manual roof.
