Fiat has announced that the U.S. debut of the “500 by Gucci” will happen during New York Fashion Week, next month. Fiat and Gucci recently teamed up to create limited-edition versions of the Fiat 500 and 500 Cabrio, dubbed the “500 by Gucci.”
The special Fiat 500 by Gucci models get exclusive design elements like a signature Gucci green/red/green web stripe that runs along the entire bodyside of the Fiat 500 by Gucci, or across the length of the cloth top on the Fiat 500c by Gucci model. Chrome cursive “Gucci” signatures complete the door frames and uniquely designed, retro-inspired 15-inch aluminum wheels with interlocking “GG” hubcaps and brake pads, which have been lacquered in signature Gucci green are also included.
The interior of the Fiat 500 by Gucci gets two-toned seats in Frau leather with the Guccissima print, glossy and satin chromes and a hand-stitched leather-wrapped steering wheel, finished in a two-tone ivory and white combination.
The 2012 Fiat 500 by Gucci models will be available in December.
