Automotive pairings with luxury fashion labels is nothing new but typically we see the more exotic and prestigious models get the designer fashion treatment, such as this
Bugatti Veyron Fbg par Hermès
or the awesome Lamborghini Murcielago LP640 Versace editions
The latest collaboration between automaker and fashion house, however, sees the pint-sized--but irresistibly stylish--Fiat 500 dressed by Gucci. Set to make its debut next week at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show, the new Fiat 500 by Gucci was created in celebration of the fashion house’s 90th anniversary and was customized by its creative director Frida Giannini together with Fiat's own Centro Stile studio.
It will be sold as a limited edition model and will be available in either black or white, and come with glossy pearl and satin highlights on its exterior. Other special details will include GG logos on the hubcaps, B-pillar and seats and custom 16 inch wheels wrapped with 195 mm rubber.
Each model will be powered by a 1.4-liter engine pumping out 100 horsepower.
No word yet on whether the limited edition Fiat 500 by Gucci will be offered in the U.S. market but we should know more details following its debut next week in Geneva.
