Fiat 500 Gets Designer Treatment in Detroit

Fiat 500 Gets Designer Treatment in Detroit

By Jeff Youngs, January 15, 2013
A Fiat introduced several new production models at the 2012 Los Angeles Auto Show, including the first 5-passenger vehicle in the automaker's lineup, so Fiat's plans for the 2013 North American International Auto Show in Detroit are comparatively tame, amounting to designer concepts based on the new 2013 Fiat 500 Turbo and the Fiat 500 Abarth.

The Fiat 500 Turbo Cattiva design concept is equipped with a sport suspension, unique 16-inch aluminum wheels in a black chrome finish, and blacked-out lighting elements. The copper-colored paint is called Rame, and the 500 Turbo Cattiva's roof and rear spoiler are painted in gloss black.

Black is the dominant color inside the 500 Turbo Cattiva. Leather sport seats, matte-finish instrument panel, contrast silver stitching on the sport steering wheel and shift knob, and a premium Beats Audio system are included.

Fiat will also display the 500 Abarth Tenebra design concept, which is painted matte gray with Hyper Black Abarth wheels, darkened lighting elements, black chrome trim, and gloss silver for the mirror caps, side stripes, and large scorpion decal on the roof.

A black extended leather treatment with contrast silver stitching and silver piping for the seats is featured inside the 500 Abarth Tenebra. Authentic matte-finish carbon fiber trim decorates the cabin, and a Beats Audio system is also installed in the 500 Abarth Tenebra.
