Our pals over at Carwow convinced one of their artists, Yasid, to mock up a bunch of rally cars. Not just any rally cars, though — the goal was to take the modern re-births of cars that once had rich rallying history (well, mostly), and see how their modern interpretations would look in full rally kit. I think the…
Mitsuoka is the world’s premier maker of Nissan-based, sub-scale vintage Jaguar-ish cars. FCA (you know, Fiat-Chrysler) is a huge carmaker that’s going through a bit of a rough patch, including a failed attempt to convince GM that a merger would be a blast. Is an FCA/Mitsuoka partnership just what everyone needs?
Do you want an Italian car that sounds as gnarly as a Ferrari but you can park at Trader Joes? Enter the Fiat 500 Abarth. What do you need to know before you buy a Fiat 500 Abarth? Don’t worry, we’ll tell you everything right here in the Ultimate Buyer’s Guide.
When you buy a Lamborghini Huracan, you’re only getting a car with huge power. When you buy a Mazda2, you’re only getting a car with teeny tiny power. But there are some individual models that span the whole spectrum.
Fiat Chrysler teamed up with Lucasfilm to create a 500e for the LA Auto Show that would really make one rely on the Force alone at any given intersection.
"The era of 007 driving awesome cars is over! Burn your old Ian Fleming books and your Skyfall DVDs! We're doomed, man! Doomed!" That's the outcry from freaked-out movie fans on the heels of the news that British superspy James Bond will drive a Fiat 500 in the next film.
Do you own a Fiat 500 Abarth? Did you park it in Brooklyn before it began to rain today? You silly loon, you left your sunroof open. But fear naught!
Sometimes the coolest stuff you find at auto shows isn't the new cars, but the crazy stuff automakers bring along and display next to them. Case in point over at the Fiat booth at the LA Auto Show: they have a giant wood buck used to build the original Fiat 500. Neat!
The Fiat 500 has had something of a rough go in America. Sales of the baby 500 were sluggish out of the gate, and the larger, uglier 500L has had a dismal reception. Maybe the Fiat 500X crossover can do better, but I really like this concept: the Fiat 600.
Racing is never simple. That's an old adage that always rings true. But even in a series that's relatively easy to get into, like the Pirelli World Challenge, the amount of thought that goes into being the slightest bit faster than everyone else takes skill. As you can see here.
You people. You just weren't satisfied with the fact that the Fiat 500 Abarth only came with three pedals and stick, were you? You had just had to go and demand an automatic. Well, here it is, new for the 2015 model year. I hope you're happy.
The Fiat 500 is stylish, fun to drive, great on gas and hilariously easy to park. It's one of the best small cars currently on the market. So why is Fiat continually so bad at advertising it to U.S. audiences?
Did you know that the first Chevy Spark (then Daewoo Matiz) was originally designed to be a Fiat 500? Here's where it all started in '92, the Lucciola concept by Giugiaro.
The Fiat 500 Abarth is already a bit of an angry car. Firm suspension, a manual transmission only, and an exhaust that sounds like it hates you and every other living thing. If you want to make it even madder, you do the equivalent of throwing hot sauce in its eyes. Enter the fire-breathing Fiat 500 695 Biposto.
If you can't have fun in a Fiat 500, Abarth or otherwise, you aren't really trying. That doesn't mean it's a perfect car, though. Now the new top model of the Fiat 500 includes a clever digital instrument cluster that's trying to be more user-friendly than the clunky old one.
Retro! Car companies can't stop making them, old people can't stop buying them! That's how it works, right?
It's safe to say that Fiat's revival in the U.S. hasn't been going all that fantastically, and for reasons that have nothing to do with Jennifer Lopez anymore. Sales have been lagging and dealers are unhappy. But a new report says the brand plans to go big by going Mini, so to speak.
