The new Fiat 500, Turin, Italy. Convertible Coral Car. 1.2 Petrol Engine
8:40 AM. YOUR MISSION DO YOU ACCEPT: TEST DRIVE THE NEW FIAT 500 CONVERTIBLE.
Let’s pretend Agent Provocateur ring’s me, and flies me on the next flight out to Turin, Italy to experience the new launch of the Fiat 500. What a bright surprise, I woke up on the sunny side with 28 degrees, despite the rainy British ‘summer’ and lack of radient glowing skin tan. Unleash the engine in you and crank up the gear, step on the gas pedal like you’re in Mario Kart’s Nintendo 64 Console. Being in control, whilst the breeze of nature nourishes my freeze hold hairstyle, the convertible rooftop is ideal for that sun tan update and 360 degree views. For those that think driving is just about getting from A to B, and C D E F G in-between, then you’re perfectly right. Now that I’ve cleared up how I ended here, let’s jump in the car like Jackie Chan and bring fun to my lifestyle. Mission accepted.
10:15AM OPEN AIR CINEMA NOW PLAYING: CASTILLO DEL VALENTINO.
When I am in another country, I tend to live life to the fullest. I mean bubblegum pants, courageous thinking and the coral color car had my name all over it. I’d tell you a secret, it took a lot of negotiating to get this popular car besides the black Fiat car, because no body wants leftovers! Glad to get the colour scheme rolling, we hit the road in search for monuments and picturesque streets, basically on a road rage because the mission was up. Turn up the 98.5 Turin FM playing ‘they see me rollin, they hatin, patrolling they tryin to catch me, riding dirty’, perhaps not quite what I had in mind. Sticking out like a sore thumb, going undercover wasn’t exactly the kind of car James Bond would race in but atlas I had the licence to kill.

12:25PM FUEL MY STOMACH, NOT THE CAR.
Park and reverse. Pit stop in the Archway, in search for the next restaurant. You can never go wrong with an Italian menu. The circular swirls twisting the spaghetti with your spork (Spoon/Fork), pretty much resembles the circle design theme of the interior of the car. From the head seats, to the controls, headlights (steering wheel & tyres of course) the beauty is in the curves. Just imagine Kim Kardashians booty, yep you won’t find any flat surfaces here. Small, compact in size, and plenty of head space, then it’s ideal for your first car. The mix of classic traditional Renaissance Architecture and town houses, is why I love exploring the city. The Fuel Efficient city car comes with a 1.2 petrol engine or the 1.3 Multijet Diesel, Twin air Turbo 0.9; one of many to choose from.
YOU HAVE NOW ARRIVED AT YOUR LINGOTTO HOTEL DESTINATION. (PART II COMING NEXT).
If barbie ruled the world, she’d probably make everything pink. What a coincidence I happen to be camouflaging with the new Fiat 500 Coral car. Express yourself with one of the many colours and prints from the new range to choose from. Let’s not take life too seriously and have a bit of fun, because life’s too short. Live and breathe the moment, the Italian way by experiencing a road trip in Europe. Take control of the wheel with the fuel efficient city car. Stay stylish, sexy and seductive.
