We now have a better look at the widebody Fiat 500 that was originally teased by Mopar at the end of last month. Sporting a beach cruiser theme, the Fiat 500 is decked out with surf-friendly modifications in a retro-style build that will be shown off at this year’s SEMA Show.

Mopar widened the Fiat 500 body by a foot in the front and the rear prior to applying a charcoal, matte-grey finish to the exterior. The old-school style fender flares cover aluminum Mopar prototype wheels that will undoubtedly attract attention thanks to their bright red paint. To contrast the matte exterior, Mopar also applied a brushed, satin finish on the door handles, mirrors, front chin spoiler, and roof rack surfboard carrier. On the hood and rear deck lid, Mopar gave a nod to the vintage hot rod culture while the teak woodwork on the slats of the roof rack gives it a unique accent.

Continuing the theme on the inside, Mopar gave its Beach Cruiser satin-brushed trim bezels and ‘boardwalk’ inspired floor slats finished with teak woodwork. The dark grey naugahyde vinyl seats get a nice touch with red-and-white beach towel seat inserts.

Performance upgrades include a Mopar cold-air intake and exhaust system while a strut tower brace tightens up the chassis. And of course, a hula girl figurine is seen front and center on the dash.
