Boys (maybe even a few girls), we'd like to introduce you to Eugena Washington, the December 2015 Playboy Playmate of the Month.
That title may seem trivial until you realize that on December 2015, the last nude issue of Playboy magazine published. So that makes her special. Not only that, but they recently named her the 2016 Playmate of the Year.

Her reward is a brand new Fiat 124 Spider, which is unfortunately only a 2-year lease and not a keeper. However, she also won $100,000, so miss Washington could even buy the Fiat if she so desired.

The stunner is perhaps best known for appearing on Tyra Banks' show America's Next Top Model. But according to the internet, she is technically not the last nude Playboy model, as that title belongs to a blonde named Kristy Garett.

The story and the pictures come from Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, so we're guessing they want to use the landmark change for Playboy as a marketing opportunity.

Not a lot is known about the car, but it appears to be a 124 Spider Lusso, based on the wheels and the leather seats. It costs less than $30,000, so it's not exactly a Ferrari. Power comes from a 1.4-liter turbo engine that produces 160 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque. Hopefully, they gave Eugena one with an automatic.

"It's a great time for this,"
she says. "The world is changing. I hope this brings different eyes to the magazine and new audiences... Right now, being a part of Playboy is what I want to do."

We did a quick check of her Instagram account and found no photos of personal vehicles. Like most models, she is more interested in traveling and meeting people than driving, which may mean that the Fiat convertible could prove useful.

Playboy is one of the most iconic magazines in American history, but it's now getting rid of the very thing that made them famous. In the era of the internet where nude bodies are only a couple of clicks away, the editors decided to leave us wanting more instead of showing everything.

And the first girl Playboy is leaving us wanting more of is called Sarah McDaniel, an internet star with different colored eyes. Since we can't show nudity on our website, we'll end this story with a video of her. You are welcome!
