at ‘i defend gala’ 2015, an event devoted to defending the universal values of basic human rights, fiat designed a bespoke ’500’ model which was auctioned off during the gala. the very first new ‘500’ to roll of the production line is an one of a kind convertible that came in ‘bossa nova’ white with a 1.2 liter 69 hp engine. it included a lounge trim level inside personalized by the umbrian master craftsmen stefano canticelli.

the car featured a calfskin exterior that expresses the excellence of italian products known around the world. the natural honey gold color of the leather was treated to withstand the elements, and enhances the car’s style elements; wheel arches, rear light clusters, headlights and chrome plated whiskers. the noticeable picnic basket on the tailgate was made of the same material, while the mirror domes are covered with mahogany wood. together with the sky blue profile and lines under the windows, the car is a tribute to famous italian riva yachts.
