Fiat 500s spotted in Michigan with manufacturer plates

October 29th, 2009 by DaveAdmin
This Fiat 500 was spotted by Nick in Hamburg, Michigan. He said the interior had “the standard mule car test equipment on the inside.”

This Fiat 500 was spotted by J.P. Joans in Bloomfield Hills, a suburb of Detroit, Michigan. It sports manufacturer plates and quite a bit of mud. (See our Fiat 500 page for a larger image.)

Not surprised. We pretty much knew this was gonna happen given Fiat's participation in bailing out Chrysler/Dodge.

That platform is based on the Abarth vehicles. They make some pretty quick little cars so I expect to see some performance variants coming to our shores on this platform in the next 2 - 3 years.

Looks like a mix between a VW Bug and a Neon .

But even smaller! It would be funny to see a 500 near a Ram :SHOCKED:

Yes Michael the Abarth is small but fast!:

Yeah, that's what I was thinking, too, reminds me of the Smart. It is an interesting little car, just way too small for me, lol, unless I took out the front seat, sat in the back, then the pedals would be comfortable :smileup: Is this really what all the cars of the future are going to look like, I wonder, they all just look too similar???

Speaking of Smart cars, I have a good one for everybody. Below is a picture of a Smart car and a picture of a Smart car in an accident with two trucks.:158: :Wow1: :SHOCKED:

Ouch :SHOCKED: but yep, that's exactly why I will never buy one! I want something I will survive in, lol 'cause I just don't want to die packed like a sardine, lol! :)
