The Fiat 500 that wasn’t at NYICS 2013

Reported by autoblog the Fiat 500 Cattiva is coming to the United States.  TPKoC was all up and down the New York International Car Show in 2013 and this car wasn’t there.

In the end, though the only Fiat in the United States worth having is an Abarth, or the Abarth Convertible.  So, the Fiat 500 Cattiva is really much ado about nothing.
