Chinese car girls can be very dangerous creatures. Beautiful, sexy, and heavily armed. Here we have just such a girl, seen on a local Fiat 500-event in the great city of Nanjing in Jiangsu Province. The girl is carrying a large caliber twin-barrel super soaker and loox very ready to wet ya’.

The new Fiat 500L mini-MPV has been spotted testing in China. The 500L debuted in Geneva in March and was also displayed at the Beijing Auto Show last week. Fiat will import the 500L into China starting late this year to compete with the very popular Mini Countryman.

The Fiat ‘500 by Gucci’ has been listed & priced on the China car market. Fiat thinks: “girl wants one Gucci bag, girl wants two Gucci bags, girl wants three Gucci bags, girl wants Gucci car!” Fiat is right, this is smart marketing that will appeal to fashionable hippie-dippy Chinese girls.

One for the girls. The Fiat 500C cabriolet has been listed & priced on the China car market. It is imported and very expensive; price starts at 209.800 yuan and ends at 261.800 yuan and that is ridiculous money for a dressed-up Fiat Panda. One engine only: 1.4 MultiAir with 101 hp, mated to a six-speed tiptronic. The standard 500 hatchback was listed in September last year. Via: Sohu.com.

New spy pics from the Fiat 500C testing in China. The standard Fiat 500 fashion accessory was listed on the Chinese car market late last year. It doesn’t seem to be doing very well, I haven’t seen a single one so far. Maybe the fact that Fiat has less than a 100 dealers in China got something to do with that. Or the price maybe, which ranges from 170.000 yuan up until 230.000 yuan. Ridiculous. You can but a locally made Honda CR-V for that, top spec!

The Fiat 500 will be listed on the Chinese auto market as an import in September. There are no plans yet to make the 500 in China. The oh so cool little car will compete with the oh so cool BMW Mini and Volkswagen Beetle, neither of which is or will be produced in China. The market for these useless cars is the same as everywhere: cool people with a small dog. The number of this sorta people is on the rise in China and will continue to rise for considerable time.
