Only 200 examples of the recently announced Fiat 500 BlackJack limited edition are in the… cards for the UK market. The matt black mini goes on sale next week and as with previous special edition 500s, the BlackJack will initially be available for order online through Fiat’s official UK website.
Aside from the individual paint job, the BlackJack edition also gets 16-inch alloy wheels in matt black with red detailing, a glossy black finish for the exterior accents such as the mouldings, door handles, mirrors and license plate holder, and red brake calipers (only 1.4L model).
Fiat UK did not mention any changes for the interior, however, we assume the British market model will feature the same upgrades as the Italian version which include seats upholstered in black leather and fabric or, optionally, red leather, and silver trim.
“The paint finish is the most striking feature of this new limited edition,” says Elena Bernardelli, marketing director, Fiat Group Automobiles UK and Ireland. “It has previously been a characteristic of new supercars, and gives the Fiat 500 a stunning new image. I am sure the BlackJack will be a huge hit with Fiat 500 fans.”
The 500 BlackJack will be offered in the UK with two engine options, a 1.2-liter petrol priced at £12,165 OTR, and a 1.4-liter petrol starting at £13,565 OTR.
