These Fiat 500s Can Really Swim, Check Them Out in San Francisco Bay on Saturday

After making a splash on the interwebs and television sets through a series of commercials showing the Fiat 500 arriving in America via sea, the specially constructed Italian sub-compacts built on top of high-powered personal watercrafts, are making appearances throughout the summer in cities across the U.S.

Following a stint in Chicago this past weekend, the Fiat 500 hatch, 500 Cabrio, 500 Abarth and 500L watercrafts will head to San Francisco Bay on Saturday, August 10.

If you’re in the Golden Gate City and prefer watching the 500 on the water than on land, here’s the official program from Fiat:
