WOW (Women on Wheels) - - WOW -

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!
