Fiat 500 R2-D2 and BB-8 By Garage Italia Celebrate “Star Wars” Premiere

After showcasing a Stormtrooper-inspired Fiat 500 at the Los Angeles Motor Show, Garage Italia Customs widened the collection with a couple more Star Wars themed variant, to celebrate the premiere of the movie in Europe.

These two cars were created to resemble the two iconic robots from the Star Wars universe, [email protected] and BB-8.

In fact, Garage Italia Customs wanted to characterize the exterior of the cars with “damage effect”, reproducing the wear and tear of “galactic battles” with an innovative aerography technique and a final 3-D embossed opaque finish.

Unlike the R2-D2 500, which looks driveable (although it has 100% tinted windows), the BB-8’s livery continues on the windows covering almost the entire car. Still, it uses a special “one-way” tinted film (just like the R2-D2 variant), which makes it possible to see through the painting – you’ll scare the hell out of the other motorists, though.

Staying true to their outside motif, each car carries its theme in the interior as well. The same design elements used in the 500e Stormtrooper can be seen here as well combining leather, Alcantara and subtle style cues to match the external livery.

Meanwhile, in a galaxy not so far away, “The Force Awakens” is breaking the box-office…
