Ferrari has just unveiled its all-new entry level model.
Powered by a 1.4-litre 100bhp engine, the baby Ferrari boasts seating for four and is finished in traditional Rosso Corsa red.
Oh ok, we’re stratching the truth a bit, but you can get this at Ferrari garages.Ferrari has ordered 200 Fiat 500s to act as courtesy cars for its UK dealerships, 60 of which will be unique, Ferrari-spec special editions.
They’re not quite stock, either. The Cinqs have been customised for Ferrari, and get ‘special tuning and exhaust in harmony with the sporting spirit of the Prancing Horse‘, as well as red brake callipers, leather trim and a tiny V8 under the bonnet. Not really.
Sadly, the only way you’ll get to drive the Ferrari 500 is if your 430/599/612 breaks down.
Clouds, silver linings and all that…
But on the other hand, if you did manage to get hold of one, people who knew would think that you owned a Ferrari, just one that was having some work done.
Elena Bernardelli, marketing director for Fiat Group Automobiles UK, said, “The link between Fiat and Ferrari is perfect here, and the initiative shows how the 500 can become a platform for exclusive limited editions.”
