There’s a cliche-ridden film from 1990 called The Rookie where, confronted by a flouorescent green sports car, Charlie Sheen’s character says “Wanna know what’s a crime? Whoever defaced that work of art by painting it that color… ought to have his ass removed.” Surely the same should be applied to this:
This is surely a lesson in how to turn a quirky and funky little car into something very few people would be happily seen in. Fiat have taken the new 500 and turned it into something like a pink nightmare to celebrate the Barbie doll’s 50th birthday.
It’ll be more than just a horrific colour scheme for owners of this ‘car.’ The special edition of the Fiat 500 will have crystal-encrusted hubcaps, window mouldings and antenna, a Barbie ‘autograph’ (though God knows where or why) and outlines of the doll on the pillars.
Let’s see if they sell more than 50 of the cars.
