The new Fiat 500 by Gucci limited-edition models represent the perfect combination of luxury and style. In the year that sees the 150th anniversary of the unification of Italy and Gucci’s 90th anniversary, these special editions of the iconic Fiat 500 and 500 Cabrio have been customized by Gucci Creative Director Frida Giannini and Fiat’s Centro Stile.
Making its premiere debut during New York Fashion Week, on Fashion’s Night Out, car enthusiasts will be thrilled and fashionistas will be inspired. Taking notes from your classic black and white film, the new black and white Fiat 500 and 500c by Gucci models are finished in stunning glossy pearl-glass paint. This innovative car features several exclusive design elements which highlight the Fiat 500’s iconic silhouette. A signature Gucci green, red and green web stripe runs along the entire bodyside perimeter or across the length of the power-retractable cloth top. Chrome elegantly written “Gucci” signatures complete the door frames and hatchback, complementing the satin-chrome exterior accents. Adding to the vehicle’s sculpted fenders are uniquely designed, retro-inspired 15-inch aluminum wheels with interlocking “GG’ hubcaps and brake pads which have been lacquered in signature Gucci green.
The interior space of the Fiat 500 by Gucci is stylish yet functional down to every last detail: chic embroidery, exclusive materials, glossy and satin chromes, the velvety varnish on the “radioboard,” the two-toned seats in Frau leather with the Guccissima print. Premium leather accents are also found on the interior door panels and on the hand-stitched leather-wrapped steering wheel, finished in a two-tone ivory and white combination.
Additionally, the Fiat 500 by Gucci features premium amenities including the all-new six-speed automatic transmission with driver-selectable gear changes, hands free communication technology, iPod control capability, SIRIUS Satellite Radio, BOSE Energy Efficient Series audio system with six premium speakers and subwoofer, power sunroof, automatic climate control, seven standard air bags, security alarm an more luxurious specs. The 2012 Fiat 500 by Gucci models will be available exclusively at FIAT Studios nationwide December 2011.
