A Fiat For When Your Ferrari Is in the Shop
The Fiat 500 is now Ferrari’s courtesy car. Ferrari’s corporate cousin produced 200 all-red special versions of the little retro car to be used throughout Europe. Although the performance will likely be a step down from whatever the driver had before, the courtesy cars come with Fiat’s largest engine for the 500 (1.4 liters, 100 horsepower), and they also “offer specific tuning and exhaust in perfect harmony with the sporty spirit of the ‘prancing horse’.”
Fiat is also touting items on the car such as the red brake calipers, sporty pedal set, special black steering wheel with red stitching and 16” alloy wheels. But honestly, no matter how special this 500 may be, if you pick up a date in your economy-based courtesy car, do you really think she’s going to believe you when you tell her that your Ferrari is in the shop?
