As we all know, TTAC has an occasional thing for pink cars. So has Fiat. Right where I live. Fiat delights Japan with the 500 Fiore Rosa (i.e. “Pink Flower”) limited edition of its Cinquecento.
A bit confusingly, only 150 of the pink babies will be available, only for a very short time and a very special occasion: For Valentines! The pinkies can only be bought from February 14 through 17, yours for only for 2.2 million Yen ($23,600, incl tax.) I already wanted to run out to buy Frau Schmitto-san hers, but she reminded me of two things:
She does not drive. And in Japan, the girls give the boys Valentine presents.
Did I mention that I love this country? I feel right at home, especially as it embarks on a flower power summer of love revisitation.
(Thank you, Gizmodiva, for the tip. However, it’s not $10,000, the yen has inched up a little.)
