Fiat 500 by Gucci priced and dated for UK


Fiat loves a special edition Fiat 500. Not content with launching the Ferrari version, a Diesel model and a convertible, the Italian car giant is now offering the Fiat 500 by Gucci in the UK.

First mentioned back in February, the car has been customised by Gucci to celebrate 150 years of Italian unification and the 90th anniversary of Gucci. Two variations will be available, a 1.2-litre model for £14,565 and the 0.9-litre TwinAir model, which will set you back £15,765. Both will be available online, first come first served, later this month.

Expect numerous special features, including the distinctive colour scheme, a mix of two-tone black with white interior or white exterior with satin chrome and black interior and the option to buy matching clothing by Gucci to go with your new runaround. None of which is likely to come cheap.

Fiat 500 by Gucci


Not content with doing a fashion variation with Diesel, Fiat has now gone high-end with an iconic fashion retailer, producing the Fiat 500 by Gucci.

It follows a similar path judging by the initial snaps. A choice of black and white, both with distinctive contrast stripes, along with matching seatbelts and internal colour scheme, not to mention plenty of Gucci logos and embossed leather seats. It's the fashionista's dream retro car.

Announced for the Milan Fashion Week, it will go public at the Geneva Motor Show on 3rd March. Launch date? Price? We don't know, but we would guess at 'fairly soon' and 'not cheap'. More images over the page.
