a on Wheels
Ilove a good success story. Okay, so the iconic Fiat 500, or “Cinquecento”, was launched way, way back in 1957. I’m not joking; we’re talking the previous century here. This little mobile marvel became a cult car of note as the cheeky bubble on wheels. Now, 60 years later, its modern reincarnation has us all drooling over its attractive assets like never before. The original wasn’t just an affordable, practical little car that got you from A to B without a hassle; it evolved into a lifestyle statement for a whole generation and beyond. I mean, your gran probably wanted one, then your mom and now you. Trust me, I know. I’ve been there and I’m obsessed.
Living and driving la dolce vita
Somehow, this adorable car touched people’s hearts and became a symbol of how to live, laugh and love – Italian style.
This, my friends, is what they call la dolce vita, the sweet life.
Who’s not going to put up her hand for a slice of that tasty pie?
Fiat’s new 500 has made little cars jump pretty high up the wanted list for 2017 and has virtually cornered the market for designer, compact city cars thanks to its combination of style and affordability. It’s simply happiness personified. You can’t help but smile when you spot this saucy little mouse on the road.
Sexy in the city
It’s all eyes on me and my
bambina mia. It’s the kind of car people notice and remember, because it turns heads everywhere it goes. You just can’t help falling in love with its cheeky curves and sassy style.
Dynamite really does come in small packages. This one is loaded with explosive features that you would normally expect to find in a bigger car. Oh, did I mention that it oozes sex appeal from just about every angle?
I’ve put together a little look at my favourite weekend missions around Cape Town so you can see just how cool this little car really is and how much fun you can have in it. Here we go!
LIFE’S TOO SHORT TO DRIVE A BORING CAR… SO, ALLOW ME TO INTRODUCE YOU TO THE AWESOME FEATURES OF THE NEW FIAT 500 – THE TOPOLINO, OR “LITTLE MOUSE” AS IT’S KNOWN IN ITALY. NOW, LETS HEAR THIS LITTLE MOUSE ROAR!
