2012 FIAT 500 Long Term Road Test

2012 Fiat 500 Sport: Dictator-Friendly Options?

This Associated Press photo of rebels pushing a Fiat 500 in Colonel Muammar el-Qaddafi's compound in Libya popped up on New York Times' Wheels Blog. Wait, HE drives one?

It looks like a seriously customized one. OK, no doors seems like a bad idea for a dictator. HATE the color scheme. Jade and gold? Ew. But I wish there were shots of the interior. Curious to see what sort of features a dictator favors. Electronic Tracking Vehicle System, Autonet Wifi? Any other guesses? (By the way, is that rebel really wearing flip-flops instead of more protective footwear?)
