Supermodel Elle McPherson with Fiat 500C in LondonEnlarge Photo
A beautiful woman and a beautiful Italian car: What's not to like? Maybe it's a little suspect if the photo in question comes courtesy of a press release from the carmaker. But, hey, we're willing to overlook that.
Renowned model Elle McPherson, who lives in London, has driven a new Fiat 500 hatchback for a while now. If you're a supermodel, you can ring up the company and say, "Give me some seat time in a 500 Cabriolet"--and Fiat UK will deliver one to your door.
"I love the Fiat 500C, it has that sexy, cool, Italian thing going on!" the press release quotes McPherson saying. "I like the way the car drives; it is perfect for cities with its small turning circle and the easy way it manoeuvres [sic] through London."
The 500C is one of four versions of the Fiat 500 that will be sold in the States starting in 2011 through the automaker's takeover of
partnership with the parts of Chrysler that have emerged from bankruptcy.
An ever-gracious Elena Bernardelli, the marketing director for Fiat UK, said, "I was delighted to hear Elle's feedback and look forward to seeing her driving a new 500C soon."
Us too. In fact, we'd look forward just to seeing Elle McPherson period.
