Cool Special new panda unveiled



You might think that Mercedes and McLaren have been busy churning out new editions of the SLR supercar like madmen (you know, aside from winning the world championship), but they're just taking a page out of the Fiat playbook. The Italian automaker has once again unveiled a new version of its diminutive Panda.

Called the Glam Edition, the special version starts with the Panda 4x4 and updates it with a new pearl white paint job complimented by aluminum roof rails and a new set of 15" alloys, but the Panda 4x4 Glam differentiates itself further inside with denim-style upholstery that should bridge the gap between the hip Diesel Edition 500 and the maternal Panda Mammy. Something tells us this isn't one of those European hatchbacks we'll be pining for Stateside.

that's because instead of buying something useful and cool, you'll be buying a poorly engineered, crappily built, oversized ****box with zero charisma and no ability

and in doing so, destroying what's left of the homegrown american car making industry.

Re: Special new panda unveiled

Hmm 500 paint and 500 denim seats.
I wonder if Fiat is trying to slowly phase out the Panda in favour of a 5 door 500.

Re: Special new panda unveiled

Oh wait.. I think I've got it. I think they're noticing that like McLaren who are producing lots of new editions of the SLR - Fiat are producing lots of editions of the Panda.

The weakest link I've ever heard.

I'm sorry, but that's appalling. Hanging your dog from the roof bars is a disgrace and has no place in a public forum like this. Shame on you.
