BASED on the Fiat Grande Punto and previously revealed in sketch guise ahead of it Geneva show debut last week, the Bertone Suagna concept interprets the theme of the coupe-cabriolet with "aggressive elegance".

In the metal, this emerges – according to Bertone – via a low front-end, arching waistline and high, muscular rear-end treatment, matched for visual effect with 18-inch alloys.

The Suagna has a completely retractable two-piece hardtop, joining a growing list of four-seater hardtop cabrios surfacing in Europe. The roof systemwas jointly developed by Pininfarina and German convertible roof specialistCar Top Systems.

The name comes from the adjective "suagna" which, in Piedmontese dialect,means a job done painstakingly, paying scrupulous attention to every detail.
