Re: Blingtastic!!

Well, I may not have money but at least I have taste - that is hideous.

I also smell the strong aroma of pure Italian bullsh*t too, given that the windows are all heavily tinted, there are few bodywork mods and the only interior shots are artists' impressions. Surely this is just a naff paint job and someone slapping on some stupid and inappropriate wheels?

Probably a good thing though....

Mind you, I remember seeing Beckham leaving a restaurant with some rather cool Italian footballer (can't remember who). Beckham and his stick like wife got into some gold plated Carlos Fandango Hummer (or similar) embossed with the family crest, while the Italian and his wife just hopped into a stock Fiat 500. I know who was cooler.

I imagine that Beckham may get half the message and want one of these...

I agree, but most things look hideous when they're covered with bling. It's also a 500C, rather than a normal 500, which makes it even worse IMO.

If you look closely it's all just a piece of badly photoshopped nonsense anyway.

You just know that someone will do it eventually though. Humans are idiotic creatures at times...

Re: Blingtastic!!

Whether real or not, the original 500 was a cheap/affordable car for the people. Not many can afford the base spec 500 these days let alone the abarth or heaven forbid a gold plated one.

True, which is why many people consider the Panda the true successor to the original 500.
