Fiat Honors a World Class Driver

09/04/2012 2 comments

The Fiat and Chrysler merger has produced some “interesting” vehicles. Remember the “special” Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8s that were gifted to Massa and Alonso?

Here is a photo, for those with fuzzy memories:

Now as if the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 x Alonso & Massa edition wasn’t hideous enough, there is a “special” Jeep Wrangler. Have you seen it yet? Here are some photos (via autoblog):

Unlike autoblog, I have some different ideas about this particular Jeep Wrangler. Perhaps Fiat has decided to pay homage to a former driver? A seven time world champion ex-Ferrari driver that is… Remember, dragons are totally Schumi Style. 😉

I mean seriously, this Jeep just screams Schumi with the dragons all over it. Open the hood, and there will be a dragon staring you (or Schumi) in the face.

There are even Chinese characters for ‘dragon’ on the hubcaps and door. It might as well say SCHUMACHER. Can you just see Schumi’s smile of happiness as he climbs into the vehicle? I sure can…

What do you think about this Jeep Wrangler? Love it? Hate it? I say it’s perfect for Schumi. 😛

Whitmarsh sets the tone for McLaren

Whitmarsh is certainly no Ron Dennis. Yes, obviously. Under Whitmarsh’s leadership, McLaren is leading the way in the F1 Top Model Championship. Whitmarsh shows us that team principals can also model:

It appears that Whitmarsh has mastered the fashion blogger pose:

One hand on the waist
Head pointed slightly down whilst eyes are looking up
Uneven weight distribution on the legs

Oh my! It’s the infamous “Little Tea Pot” pose. Oh Whitmarsh, you amaze me. 😉

Looks like Big Daddy D (aka Stefano Domenicali) needs to step up his game. Afterall, there can be only one Team Principal Top Model.
