Fiat didn't bring just any model to the Paris Motor Show for the debut of the new Panda 4x4. It brought the most beautiful woman in Italy.
There were some debuts at the Paris Motor Show this year that were more important than others. The new Fiat Panda 4x4 wasn't one of them. At least, it wouldn't have been, if not for one striking model standing alongside it. You see, a lot of carmakers hire pretty models to stand next to their vehicle at car show. Especially the Paris show. But Fiat didn't just hire any pretty face and set of legs. It brought the most beautiful woman in all of Italy to stand next to the Panda, of all things.
The woman in question is Giusy Buscemi (presumably of no relation to Steve Buscemi of "Boardwalk Empire" fame). She was recently crowned Miss Italia 2012. What's the connection between the pageant winner and Fiat? Apparently the Italian automaker sponsored the contest this year and provided the vehicles with which the contestants were transported. Is that reason enough for her to climb out of something as mundane as a Panda? We're not sure. But then, we don't really care, either. Just as long as she keeps flashing that smile.
