Bless! Fiat congratulates Barbie

Pete Mait

The most famous doll in the world turns 50 on March 9, 2009. In the Milan fashion temple "La Rinascente", Fiat will be presenting the most unusual birthday present for the doll that has always kept her youth: a Fiat-500 show car in pink. The entire body will be festooned with crystals and the B-pillars will be decorated with Barbie silhouettes.

The pink metallic bodywork colour will also run on into the cabin and the many cute accessories of this one-off will bring a dazzling smile to your face. Inside, there are Alcantara seats for Barbie's little bottie, a choice of lipstick in the glove compartment or an LED-lit mirror for scintillating makeup perfection. In bad weather, the cover (also in pink) will keep the sweet little Fiat 500 in pristine condition. This sparkling show car will be going on tour soon. Should that not include a city near you, then weep not. Summon your daughter and check out the gallery.
