Paris Live – Fiat 500 Couture special editions
Aravind Jayachandran, I'm a huge petrolhead, an automobile engineer, a massive fan of Ferrari, and loves collecting die-cast models for inspiration.
Special editions mark the Paris Fashion Week.
Making a fashion statement at this year’s Paris Fashion Week was a trio of Fiat 500s under the name “500 Couture” that showcased Fiat’s extensive customization program to attendees of the 2014 Paris Motor Show.
Fiat 500 Ron Arad Edition
The first to be unveiled was the Fiat 500 Ron Arad Edition, where Fiat collaborated with famous Israeli designer Ron Arad. In this edition, the modern 500 is finished in black while a silhouette of the original “Cinquecento” is hand-drawn on the side profile, clearly depicting how big the current 500 is over the original 500. Other notable features include a glass sunroof, chrome-plated accents, black interiors, pitch black Poltrona Frau leather seats with ivory trim, 7″ TFT instrument panel, Fiat’s Blue&Me infotainment system, leather steering wheel with mounted stereo controls, automatic climate control system, fog lights and 16″ alloy rims.
The Fiat 500 “Ron Arad edition” will be sold starting from November, and customers will be treated to a special service and will also receive a 1:18 accurate scale model along with the car.
Fiat 500 Comics
The second special edition car is the 500 Comics. It pays tribute to the pop nature of the original 500, and comes with a two tone yellow and metallic black paint work and detailed with hand-drawn stitching graphics.
Fiat 500 Camouflage
The third special edition, as its name suggests, is wrapped in green/grey camouflage graphics on a black car with contrasting fluorescent yellow mirror caps and rim accents.
