Fiat 500 Pink: it’s, er, pink

Special-edition Cinq will be 2010’s must-have fashion item, apparently. Roll on 2011

Special-edition Cinque

As you'll know, we are fans of the Fiat 500 here at TG. However, if we were to offer one criticism of the lovely little Cinq, it would be that it is simply too manly.

Not that we've got anything against manly cars, you understand. But sometimes, when driving the 500, we worry that passers-by are thinking, ‘Tsk, there goes one of those hairy-backed Neanderthals. I bet he's never even heard of exfoliating or Sex and the City or brioche'.

Thankfully a 500 has arrived to assuage our fears. And that car is the 500 Pink. Sadly limited to a mere 500 examples, the Pink is based on the 1.2-litre Lounge but gets - wait for it! - pink paint and a pink key cover.

The fashionistas within Fiat say that the Pink "looks set to become 2010's ‘must have' fashion item". Exactly what people will think of you in 2011 remains unclear.

The 500 Pink costs £11,700 and can only be ordered online. Obviously we're far too high-brow to suggest a smutty tagline for the Pink, but if you accidentally added a few using the comment boxes below, well, we'd be powerless to stop you. Keep it at least moderately clean, mind.

Now share it...
