Genius! Fiat fits in-car espresso maker to 500

The next version of the Fiat 500, the 500L due in 2013, will have an optional built-in espresso maker developed with Lavazza.

The clever little gadget uses capsules, as per George Clooney's rival coffee brand, but modified slightly to make it more ergonomic to use in the car. We particularly like the little speedometer-style temperature gauge – useless, but sooo cute. The "coffee experience" kit will also include a spoon holder, pod holder and sugar holder. It is a fantastically neat installation, with no visible cables – the machine clips directly into the power source between the seats.
