The Suagna was a design created by Bertone based on the
Fiat Grande Punto platform.
The Suagna was a convertible with a folding hardtop roof
system which stowed away neatly into the rear cargo space
The name 'Suagna' translates from Italian to mean 'painstaking
work' and this is supposed to describe how hard Bertone
worked in developing the concept. But when you look at
the mismatched and peculiar lines which adorn the bodywork
it's hard to describe the shape as beautiful. Granted
it's not ugly, but there's far better looking looking
hardtop coupes on the market. And for a one-off prototype
designed to show off the capabilities of a top-level Italian
design house it's not that impressive.
Perhaps the most original elements of the Bertone Suagna's
design are the peculiar headlights and taillights which
seem to be near mirror images of each other.
