Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) has commissioned a bespoke Fiat 500C to be auctioned off at the “I Defend Gala 2015” with all the proceedings going to the “Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights Europe” foundation which supports human rights.
This one-of-a-kind convertible comes painted in Bossa Nova White. What makes the 500C stand out is the bespoke calfskin exterior customization by Umbrian master craftsman Stefano Conticelli, designed to showcase the excellence of Italian products, Fiat said in a statement. The natural honey gold colour of the calfskin leather has been treated to withstand the seasons, and enhances the car’s iconic style elements like the: wheel arches, rear light clusters, headlights and chrome-plated whiskers.
The 500C with the red roof and mahogany mirror caps with blue inserts pay tribute to the Riva yachts. The 500C gets the 69 bhp 1.2-liter engine and comes in the Lounge Trim level. The event will be conducted by Kerry Kennedy, daughter of Robert Kennedy, actress and author and President of the “Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights” Foundation.
The recently revamped 500 is slated to go on sale in September in the UK. The exterior includes tweaked headlights, new LED daytime running lights integrated into the foglamps, extensive chrome usage on the front-end, a tweaked rear bumper and full-length chrome strip on it, redesigned taillamps and new rear foglamps with a reversing light.
The interiors get a new Uconnect infotainment system, with a 5″ touchscreen on the Lounge trim. The instrument panel also gets a TFT display as an option. Also new, are the seats that are more ergonomic with nine colour combinations being made available for upholstery.
