If you put together something as iconic as the Fiat 500, the Gucci brand and a bunch of slim models like Russian bombshell Natasha Poly, you’re bound to get a bit of attention. As a result, it doesn’t surprise us at all that the Italian carmaker has logged 3,000 pre-orders for the 500 by Gucci already. Now, the convertible version has been revealed, and it’s called the 500C by Gucci… obviously.
Orders will be taken starting this month and the car will be arriving at dealerships worldwide from this September. To highlight the coolness of the Italian convertible that can be matched to a fake purse, from August 19th ‘500C by Gucci’ will be the star of an original tour that will stop at some of the most famous places in Europe.
The latest version of Fiat’s designer convertible has been tweaked by Gucci and features all of its trademarks, from the red and green stripes to the logos on the seats and wheel hubs. It will come in two body colours: white with matte chrome-plated elements and glossy black with shiny chrome-plated accents.
Both color versions get the same soft top is black with the characteristic green-red-green Gucci web pattern. The body is also set apart from the regular 500 by 16″ alloy wheels characterised by the unmistakable retro design of the citycar. The bug caps sport a double “G” logo in matching body colour and the Gucci signature in italics is displayed on the tailgate and on the door pillar.
Standard equipment includes utomatic climate control system, seven airbags (front, side, window and knee), Blue&Me system integrated with rear parking sensors, car radio with CD-MP3 player and leather steering wheel with radio controls.
The beautiful ‘500C by Gucci’ tour will hit Saint Tropez (from August 19 to 27), Berlin (September 8 – 14), Barcelona (September 25 – October 2), London (October 16 – 23) and Geneva (October 23 – 30). In Italy, the tour will start from Forte dei Marmi (August 22 – 28) and then move to Rome (September 4 – 11), Florence (September 19 – 26) and Milan (October 8 – 16).
