Fiat has unveiled a 500C study based on the recently refreshed city car which will be auctioned at a human rights charity gala in Monte Carlo.
Coincidentally, the very first New 500 to roll off the assembly line, the one-off convertible model, was personalized by craftsman Stefano Conticelli using generous amounts of leather.
Based on the Lounge trim level and powered by the 69PS 1.2-liter petrol engine, the show car sports a Bossa Nova White body color accented with calfskin patches.
Treated to withstand the elements, the material features a natural honey gold color which serves to underline the car’s style elements including the wheel arches, rear light clusters, headlights and chrome-plated whiskers.
An unusual accessory can be found at the rear – a picnic basket applied on the tailgate made of the same material. Other unique touches include the mirror caps covered with mahogany and the applications in Sky Blue on the sides, which are a tribute to Riva yachts.
The customized Fiat 500 will be auctioned at the “I Defend Gala 2015,” the first edition of the charity gala supporting the “Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights Europe” Foundation, which champions human rights. All proceeds will be donated to the foundation.
