And "500L" means what? That it can make up to 500 liters of coffee? That it uses 500 liters of fuel to make a cup of joe?

That was weak

They could put some dice in the glove box and say it comes with a casino and a coffee maker

Not really such a bad idea. How much time, fuel, and money are used by people stopping at Starbucks &c to get a cup of coffee?

Limo ?


They're just cashing in on the "500" name - and doing it no justice.
It looks like a collision between a new Fiat Panda and a new 500

I wonder if you have to buy the coffee and filter from fiat? Or maybe they're creating a whole new aftermarket industry...
