Fiat 500C - Luigi is in town

This car has beautiful little exterior features ...

In a market like Abu Dhabi, you are likely to find many more Hummers, Land Cruisers, and even Maybachs, Phantoms or Ghosts then the Fiat 500C. Starting at just under 80,000 AED, or RM$65K, its cute... oops, good value?

Remember that the classic 500 was first launched in the year of Malaysia's independence, 1957 ... this version was launched in 2007, with the convertible being released in 2009. It recently arrived in Abu Dhabi as a 2011 model - 1.4 litre, 16-valve engine which is the same as the hardtop, producing about 100 horsepower. A 5-speed dual transmission is used to deliver the power, with a "tiptronic" function which my friend KCL liked.

Yes, a family of 4 can fit snugly inside. Ask KCL and LEH whom I did this shoot for :-)

Pretty features :-) and gorgeous symmetry.

The interior somehow could not match the exterior in terms of flair ...

Good to see Fiat back on the streets of Abu Dhabi :-)

Up .. or down ...

Pretty. Most certainly YES!

Been reading up on Abu Dhabi - would love to go some day, since I'll be headed to that area for a vacation. Cheers for the posts, very informative and entertaining, though I still can't get the exchange rate right in my head. :)

Exchange rate simple - 8 Ringgit = 10 AED
