The original Fiat 500 by Gucci was an overwhelming success, quickly garnering over 3,000 pre-orders, pushing the two Italian companies to release a cabriolet version of their customized 500. The 500C by Gucci shares much of the same modifications its hardtop counterpart has, being offered at a little over $28,350. It’ll inherit the same color choices – white with matte chrome trim or black with glossy chrome accents – as the original coupe, and will also sport the same body color-matched 16-inch wheels.
The most significant difference between the two models will be the cabrio’s sliding cloth roof which has been accented with Gucci’s signature green-red-green stripe. The same stripe can be found on the sides of the coupe version.
Inside, the cabriolet doesn’t stray away from the original design, with Gucci accents throughout including the seat belts, seat inserts, shift boot, floor mats and key fob.
