Exclamation Do you want to be featured in CAR magazine?

I've been contacted by the editor at CAR magazine who wants to run a feature on the new 500e in their upcoming edition and wants some other FIATs to accompany it in the shooting!

You need to be available around June 14, likely near to Peterborough or the Midlands (although if everyone is down South, they can move it) and they will cover fuel, food, credit you in the mag, send you free copies plus the high res photos.

Sounds like a great opportunity, so if you drive any of these models and would like the chance to be featured, please post down below.

I'll let this run for a week, the supply the chap with all your email addresses and they will contact you directly for photos and information.

(Ideally your car will be unmodified, but even if it is - it's worth putting your name down)

Models Required
  • Classic 500
  • Classic Panda
  • 126
  • New 500
  • Panda 100HP (or non-HP of that generation)

So get your names down below - I will submit the list next Friday afternoon
Thanks koalar thanked for this post

Re: Do you want to be featured in CAR magazine?

i would say lack of cinquecento is more worrying being that its an article on a 500 and a cinquecento by its very definition is a 500 and a panda is, well, a panda lol

Re: Do you want to be featured in CAR magazine?

Yeah, I’d be happy. Panda 100hp here. It used to be a press car so would be quite funny for it to be featured again.

If they're interested in presenting a comparative history of small Fiats, then definitely yes. Not sure whether or not they realise this, though.

No harm in putting yourself forward.

The list is of successive Fiat A-segment vehicles from 1957. Tracking the lineage to the latest version they are doing a piece on.

Punto is B-segment.

Conconcurrent A-segment vehicles, such as the cinquecento, panda 319 are not part of that lineage.

At least that's my guess based on the list of cars requested.

Re: Do you want to be featured in CAR magazine?

If someone is going to put their Punto forward for this then I will step up with a Minty Seicento SX .

South based .
