Joint project between Fiat and Mattel to celebrate Barbie's 50th anniversary. Seriously. No seriously, I couldn't have made that up.

That's the most normal looking thing I have ever seen to bear the Rinspeed name. Seriously.

I'm confused, are the wheels supposed to be spinning or something?

Also, didn't a little birdy tell me that Fiat is possibly coming stateside?

Cyclone, it's Rinspeed, it's not supposed to make a fraction of sense.

If those wheels are indeed spinning and she is indeed running forward, wasn't this picture taken two second before someone had to call her an ambulance?

They're on the street here now









This is stupid "Diesel" 500 1.2 litre version is NOT good (all show and no go!), but lots of passers by loved it:






Actually, I'm wondering if there will be an RS version of the Ford Ka that shares the 500 platform . Asked a Ford dealer but they knew nothing...

I suspect Ford may want to out do the Abarth EsseEsse (158 bhp).

Imagine one of these


But with Focus RS type tuning


A Ka RS without the cutesy 500 looks would be rather tempting...
