arriving to the european market in november 2014, the fiat ‘500 couture’ series is sold with an accurate 1:18 showcased scale model and also includes the ‘comics’ and the ‘camouflage’ editions to its collection. the former reflects the pop nature of the original car by flaunting a two-tone pastel ochre yellow and metallic black color scheme, and a stylish stitching graphic. whereas, the ‘camouflage’ design draws upon the fun nature in the car’s DNA and extends this with the grey/green pattern.
