The FIAT Brand stands for discovery through passionate self-expression. It encourages people to be in charge of their lives, live confidently and celebrate the smallest of things with infectious excitement. That philosophy is embodied by the North American introduction of the iconic FIAT 500 or Cinquecento – a small car that lives big. Italian at heart and rooted in a rich heritage, the 500 is synonymous with modern simple design blending form, function and a pride of ownership that is genuine.
Reminiscent of the original Cinquecento, the 2012 FIAT 500 and FIAT 500c (Cabrio) build on the vehicle’s global popularity. Since its initial launch in 2007, more than 800,000 FIAT 500 vehicles have been sold in more than 80 countries around the world. The model’s unquestionable popularity is the result of the FIAT 500’s great ability to deliver unmatched personalization options with advanced solutions in terms of quality, engine and passenger comfort. In addition to success on the sales front, the FIAT 500 has earned more than 80 awards, including being named the 2008 European Car of the Year, 2009 World Car Design of the Year, Best New Engine of 2010 (FIAT MultiAir Turbo) and a 2012 “Recommended Pick” by Consumer Guide.
Dedicated to supporting the growth of new galleries and the exposure of emerging artists, The SCOPE Foundation is pleased to honor work that pushes boundaries and challenges expectations. For each edition of The SCOPE Art Show, The Foundation honors an emerging artist of extraordinary promise, by presenting The Scope Foundation AWARD, aimed at bolstering creative exposure and amplifying professional profile. Nominees for Miami 2012 edition of The SCOPE Foundation Award will be announced in November.
