The Fiat 500C was expected to sell 50,000 units in the U.S. It only sold 20,000, but Sergio Marchionne is fighting back by introducing a 500C wagon at the Geneva Auto Show. MINI took 10 years to build it's brand in America. Fiat says it will do the same.

RWD Abarth 500 Drifting and Burnouts!
I had fun with the Motore Centrale R230, a massively tuned 500 Abarth with the RWD system and the middle engine position. This car is made in collaboration with Lucarelli-Monza and Aznom companies. The R230 has been lightweighted of 50kg and the power increased up to 230hp, so now accelerating from 0 to 100 km/h in just 4.7s and a top speed of 245 km/h. There are much more mods like the Tar-Ox brakes system, Bilstein B14 race suspensions, new turbo and more things.

Sergio Marchionne Resurrecting Chrysler
In 2009, Chrysler was sputtering toward collapse, with tens of thousands of jobs in jeopardy. But one man bet that he could save the company and make it profitable again. He's Sergio Marchionne. He'd already turned around Fiat and felt the two companies were a good fit -- and clearly he likes a good challenge. So Marchionne took a $6 billion, high-interest U.S. Treasury loan and promised to pay it all back by 2017. Chrysler beat the deadline by six years. Steve Kroft interviews Marchionne as Chrysler rolls out a new car. Copied and shared to further reach of a great interview and message. Video by CBS 60 min via CBSNewsOnline
