The 2012 Fiat 500: Hang on!


Fiat North America had Johnny Kanavas, a well known professional driver, put the 2012 Fiat 500 through its paces during the Fiat 500 Media Event, held this past January. Here is the video for all to enjoy:



Johnny Kanavas is a professional driver with over 20 years of competitive driving experience. Kanavas’ racing experience ranges from go-karts to Touring Cars to professional drifting and 24-hour endurance racing.




Kanavas came away impressed with the car.


You will be, too!

Seeing this makes me think that an Italian Job III should be made starring Abarth 500 esseesse and instead of a Torinese bank they could rob the Bank of England or giving the modern Mini's origins, the Deutsche Bundesbank of Frankfurt!

Anytime you get to see a Fiat being slid around is always a good thing. Plus, it's the first time we've seen a US spec car being driven hard.
