Fiat has recently announced that a limited edition of the 500 model, named the America, will be officially presented to the public at the upcoming 2012 Geneva Motor Show on the 6th of March.
Even if the Fiat 500 America sounds like it has been developed especially for the over-seas auto market, Fiat is saying that the small model, in its limited edition, won’t be launched in the United States. The Fiat 500 America might have the United States flag on its door mirrors and some other significant changes which might make you think that this might be something aimed at the average American, but even so, this will be limited to Europe, so we have a simple question for Fiat: “What European would ever drive a car with the American flag on it?”
The Fiat 500 America is coming with an exclusive metallic paint-job, named the America Blue, but the small model will also come with a white paint-job, a red top and some blue rim edge on the alloy wheels. Both versions of the Fiat 500 America feature mirrors covered with the “Stars & Stripes” special graphics, some special stickers and a dedicated belt line. The limited edition of the model isn’t coming with any mechanical changes and only 1,000 units will be made, 500 coupes and 500 convertibles.
