Introducing the world’s cutest car, the FIAT500 and FIAT500c by GUCCI.
Finally, the Mini has a very stylish rival – small/compact enough to fit in anywhere, strong enough to move the owner around and stylish enough to get looks from street spectators. The collaboration came as a result of Gucci celebrating its ninetieth anniversary with fellow iconic Italian brand, FIAT who has been around for over 50years. The car is overloaded elegantly with Gucci’s iconic detailing both outside and inside with the signature Gucci stripes running through the body of the car to the seat belts. You don’t have to be a Gucci brand lover to love this car. The car also genuinely drives well, so its not just about its designer status.
As Christmas is right round the corner, either one of these cars should be one of the items on your wishlist. The FIAT500c is the convertible version and the FIAT500 is the cabriolet/hatchback version, with both styles coming in very sophisticated body colours of white with glitter and brushed chrome-plated elements, and black with glitter and shiny chrome-plated accents. The glittery effect is created with the use of tiny glass beads for extra sparkle.
The car has been released in Europe and would be released in America next year. Jennifer Lopez is currently the spokesmodel for the Fiat500 model, hence the unashamed display of the car at the recent American Music Awards.
Here are the details of the car both Exterior and Interior. Its a car to have if you can afford it or be given if you wish hard enough.
The soft top of the convertible has the iconic Gucci stripes and Guccissima webbing details on the fully electric operated roof which you can release at just the touch of a single button.
The Gucci touches are everywhere – cursive Gucci signature appears on the rear and side doors.
The wheels are 16” alloy wheels characterised by the unmistakable retro design of the spokes. The wheel caps have a double interlocking G logo, matching car body colour.
In stepping inside the car, you’ll be met with contrasting ivory and black interiors (this is dependent on the body colour of the car) with bi-colour steering wheel and two-tone leather seats sporting the ‘Guccissima’ print. From the key cover to the mats, gearbox the Gucci signature is represented stylishly with polished chrome-plated elements where necessary. The seat belts are not left out either as they come in the beautiful Gucci green-red-green stripes.
The car comes with standard equipment of automatic climate control system, seven airbags (front, side, window and knee), Blue&Me system(Bluetooth) integrated with rear parking sensors, car radio with CD-MP3 player and leather steering wheel with radio controls.
Gucci obviously does not stop at just adding its signature to the car, they go an extra mile designing a line of clothing and accessories to complement the car owner beautifully while making a travel statement. The 500 by Gucci collection is mainly accessories and a line of ready to wear pieces in black and white with the green-red-green stripes and ‘Guccissima’ print making the occassional appearance where necessary. The very luxurious collection for the avid Gucci fan has the following Key holders, travel cases and bags, messenger bags, BlackBerry, iPhone and iPad case, duffle bags, backpacks, aviator sunglasses, driving gloves, wrist watch, scraves, blankets, velour tracksuits, polos and tshirts.
The car is priced at about £17,800 in the UK and $23,000 in the US; its available to order both online at www.fiat.co.uk and in selected Fiat UK dealers. See the cars up close on http://www.fiat.co.uk/500bygucci/
