Created in collaboration with luxury yacht manufacturer Riva.
Fiat is showcasing the Fiat 500 Riva at the 2016 Bologna Motor Show in Italy. The new 500 exclusive special series which was introduced in June is already up for orders in Europe.
The Fiat 500 Riva has been created in collaboration with luxury yacht manufacturer Riva. It's finished in the exclusive Sera Blue body paint, with the convertible version featuring a new blue top exclusive to this version. Special exterior details include chrome-plated mirror caps, chrome-plated handles, a double aquamarine line running along the belt line and 16-inch 20-spoke light alloy wheels with a dedicated blue finish on the outside.
The Fiat 500 Riva feels distinct inside as well. The dashboard is made of real mahogany with maple inlays, the same wood used on the yachts made by Riva. The door sills and gear lever knob are carved from a solid piece of wood also made of mahogany. For the seats, Fiat has used an exclusive ivory leather created by Poltrona Frau. The seats also have ivory stitching in a different tone on piping and their side strips are Sera Blue.
The Fiat 500 Riva is available with the 1.2-litre FIRE petrol, 0.9-litre TwinAir petrol, 1.3-litre Multijet diesel engines from the regular Fiat 500. Transmission choices include 5-speed manual, 6-speed manual and Dualogic automated manual.
