Elle Macpherson snapped driving Fiat 500C!

Apparently that’s what counts as a news story these days, though there is a huge whiff of PR puffery about the story, which made headlines (elsewhere) last week.

Apparently, Elle ‘fell in love’ when loaned a 500C and will be taking delivery of her own soon. I am sure the multi-millionaire business woman will be paying for her car, too...

Quite why Fiat needs Elle to draw attention to the 500C is beyond me. Then again, quite why anyone would want any Fiat is something of a mystery to me.

That said, even though there have always been some difficult design periods for the marque, a Thema 8.32 would certainly be amusing and I’ve always wanted the dashboard of a Lancia Trevi as an object d’art. But that was a Lancia, wasn’t it?
