FIAT helps Jay Leno give to charity
A FIAT model can do many things. It can get you from point A to point B. It can render you more attractive by association. It can surprise you in regards to cargo capacity for such a tiny exterior. It can save you loads of cash at the gas pump with its impressive gas mileage. These claims may be nothing new to FIAT shoppers - however, we've got some news that they probably haven't heard about.
Not only can a 2012 FIAT 500 do all of the aforementioned functions, but it can also help raise money for charity - with the help of Jay Leno. That's right, readers - "The Tonight Show" host will auction off his 2012 FIAT 500 at the Gooding & Company's Pebble Beach Auction in a few short weeks (August 18th, to be precise). All proceeds made from the purchase will be going to the Fisher House Foundation.
FIAT fans and shoppers should know that this is no ordinary FIAT model. Leno's FIAT 500 is a Prima Edizione model and is No. 2 in a 500-car limited edition that commemorates the automaker's return to the U.S. market last year. Better yet, it was the first U.S.-specific FIAT 500 to be sold to a customer, and has just 800 miles on it.
"Hopefully some good samaritan will pay more than it's worth," states Leno. "It's a fun car to drive, it's a cool little car. Any time you want to take the little car instead of the big car, then you are doing it right." Here at Fields FIAT of Highland Park, we agree with Leno and are excited that he is helping FIAT make a difference and raising funds for a great cause.
