Update: August, 2012
Fiat, gave us the fabulous 500c Gucci Edition and we had a great time with it. The Gucci package is a $4000 addition on top of the $22,500 500c. It includes Gucci leather interior, Gucci paint and body kit and many upgrades like the shift knob, hand brake, etc.

Mechanically, it is the same as the 500c so it’s really a glamorous facelift to a solid chassis. We had a ton of fun with it as the 500c charm was stepped up a couple of notches. Women loved it as they would stop in their tracks as we rolled slowly in downtown areas. The roof was awesome too as it gave the sensation of a convertible but none of the downsides like more weight and added chassis flex. We felt safer too as this Fiat 500c had a very secure structure with all the pillars still present.

The 2012 Fiat 500 is a car that manages to deliver driving passion and excitement with 101 horsepower.  That is a new paradigm and that is an exciting development today. In this polarized nation of exciting V8s and gutless hybrid cars, the Fiat 500 stirs the pot and says: “Hey, I can be fun to drive, help the environment and not put you in debt all in one package.”

The good news is we agree. This is the most fun per horsepower we’ve had in the history of Carreview.com. Allez!

The better news is more Fiats are coming and the The angry 500 known as the Fiat Abarth is coming too.  We can’t wait!

“There isn’t another $25,000 car on the market today that will garner as much attention as this convrtible Fiat 500C. Paint it Giallo (yellow) like our test car, and the petit bumblebee’s cynosure quotient jumps off the map.”
