Fiat 500 America, the first vehicle sold on Twitter image

With an offer of 15.165 euros, a German internet user is the winner of the TwitBid dedicated to the Fiat 500 America. The vehicle has been assigned today during a short ceremony held in Turin, in Fiat Group Automobiles’ buildings.

The company is only producing a total of 1,000 units draped in the U.S. theme, with 500 of those leaving the factory in hard-top guise and the rest as convertibles. Changes are pretty scarce beyond the special decal treatment and unique wheel accents.

Available with 69 HP 1.2 8v Euro 5 engine, the 500 America Limited Edition has a fuel consumption of 5.1 l every 100 kilometers and CO2 emissions of 119 g/km. Completing its safety equipment are ABS and EBD as standard, as well as driver and passenger airbags plus side bags.

The Italian automaker Fiat , which holds a majority stake in Chrysler, said revenue from mass market car sales in Europe fell 13.1 percent in the first quarter, a shortfall which was more than compensated by booming car sales in the United States.
