The incredibly popular Fiat 500 is now available in a special edition which has been designed to combine the exquisite style of a luxury yacht and the dinky dimensions of one of the UK’s favourite small cars.
The Italian car-maker has collaborated with Riva, a company best-known for producing some of the world’s flashiest yachts, and the result is the Fiat 500 Riva. The nautical roots are clear from the exclusive Sera blue paintwork, accentuated by a double aquamarine coachline at waist height, and set off admirably by the 16-inch alloy wheels.
Bodywork on the Fiat 500 Riva is complemented by the chrome-plated finish of the car’s mirror caps, door handles and bonnet trim.
The regular white interior of the Fiat 500 Riva also boasts several highlights of Sera blue, including on the seat sides and seat belt edges. The boat theme continues on the dashboard, which can be specified with a mahogany or maple finish, and the gear knob, which has been carved out of solid mahogany.
Riva logos are included on the bonnet of each of the cars, while the first 500 buyers will also be able to specify a personalised finish to a numbered badge behind the handbrake, making each of these special Fiat 500 Rivas as unique as their owners.
The Fiat 500 Riva is offered with the usual choice of Fiat engines, which range from the 900c TwinAir petrol, producing either 84bhp or 104bhp, up to a 95
bhp 1.3-litre diesel. The cars have a manual gearbox as standard but an automatic option is offered on some models. Fiat 500 and 500C convertible versions are available, with the convertible’s roof, like the car’s paintwork, being an exclusive blue only available on this edition.
