The recently facelifted Fiat 500C has received leather body add-ons for the sake of charity.
Based on the Lounge version painted in Bossa Nova White with a red roof, this one-off Fiat 500C facelift comes with a 69 bhp 1.2-liter engine but what makes it stand out is the bespoke calfskin exterior customization elaborated by Umbrian master craftsman Stefano Conticelli. He used leather to showcase the “excellence of Italian products” such as this 500C for which he selected a natural honey gold type of leather that has been treated to withstand nature’s elements.
It has been applied onto the wheel arches, around the headlights & taillights and it also surrounds the front grille while the side mirror caps have a mahogany look which together with the blue inserts pay tribute to the Riva yachts. To top it all off, there’s a special tailgate-mounted picnic basket also made from calfskin.
The special Fiat 500C facelift will be auctioned at the “I Defend Gala 2015” charity gala, with all of the proceeds going to the “Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights Europe” foundation which supports human rights.
