Fiat 500C Sales UnderWhelming But the Italians Will Fight Back
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.

Fiat Abarth 500 SS:Little Rocket Coming To America
Now that Fiat owns Chrysler, the U.S. market will get the Fiat line-up of
cars including the highly tuned Abarth models. The first to hit will be the
Abarth 500 SS. The little car can easily compete with the Mini-Cooper and
others. It's a tuner ready to go. www.thedrivechannel.com
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.

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.

2012 Fiat 500C test drive and review
New York City is the perfect place to test out an urban-friendly car like
the 2012 Fiat 500C. This convertible comes to the US, inspired by the
original Cinquecento. Automotive journalist Scott Newell finds a rainy day
no obstacle to having fun in the 500C.
Fiat 500 convertible vs Fiat 500 drag race Mashup Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2012 Fiat 500 convertible is a tiny small
and very European Car. The 2012 Fiat 500 is also a tiny small and somewhat
European Car. We put these two to the test to see which one is better for
American sized roads. In the process we also wanted to see which one is faster...the convertible with the
automatic six speed transmission or the hardtop with the five speed. Both
cars have the same engine. Check this fun TFLcar Mashup review.
