We all know Garage Italia Customs has a soft spot for Fiat’s cutesy 500 city car – and this is unsurprising considering that aftermarket specialist’s Lapo Elkann is a descendant of Fiat’s co-founder.
The tuning specialist has now decided to deliver some cool designer’s panache to the automaker’s successful model. This is because their latest iteration comes in the form of a fashion-inspired 500C that honors Diesel founder Renzo Rosso. Nicknamed the 555RR for obvious reasons, the bespoke cabriolet looks for something called the “spirit of rock,” a tyle that is rather unfitting though for the joyous little car. Garage Italia Customs has decided the 500C should go for a black paint with silver glitter. More obvious will be the Swarovski crystals framing the front and rear lights – and as a tone down element there’s a matte black stripe over the hood and down the hatch.
Some crimson red trim on the front bumper and around the wheels completes the darkish exterior treatment. The cabin is Garage Italia Customs’ way of better referencing the Diesel house: black denim on the door panels and the gear lever cover compliments the jeans line, black Foglizzo leather covers the seats and headliner is a nod to the biker jackets, while a zipper is located above the glove compartment on the passenger’s side. Since we’re dealing with a Fashionista, pop up elements such as the bright red shift knob are a must – so are the “Enjoy” white letters on top or the Rosso’s monogram R. The tuner didn’t specify the powertrain it used – though a diesel engine should be the best fit for it, right?
