As expected, Fiat unveiled several modified 500 models at the 2012 SEMA Show: The Fiat 500 Beach Cruiser, Fiat Abarth Cafe Racer, and a modified Fiat Argento from Magneti Marelli.

Featuring a massive one-foot widebody, the Fiat 500 Beach Cruiser gets a charcoal matte finish grey paint further accented by bright red-painted wheels. Additional performance comes from a collection of Mopar goodies including its cat-back exhaust, cold air intake, front strut tower brace, and new suspension.

Inspired by the stripped-down, exposed look of hot rods and motorcycles, the Fiat Abarth Cafe Racer gets a shaved interior, chopped roof, and very little interior amenities. The entire body has been finished in polished aluminum with custom disc wheels and rear spoiler. What is left of the interior comes courtesy of Katzkin Leather.

Lastly, is the Magneti Marelli Fiat Argento, inspired by the great racing heritage of Mopar brand’s all-makes parts partner. A custom cold air intake feeds in air that exits through a Bombardone 2.0 exhaust system, while lowering springs give the Fiat a more aggressive stance. On the exterior, plenty of carbon fiber adorns the 500 while 17-inch wheels and an exterior wrap gives it the look it deserves in Las Vegas.
