According to a leaked document within the motor industry, the new ‘Series 4’ Fiat 500 is set to be unveiled on June 11th, with production starting in August and should be in showrooms sometime next year. The Fiat facelift will include a complete styling and technology overhaul, which will feature new front and rear bumpers, a new range of colours, chrome trimmings, FCA’s U-connect infotainment system and most intriguingly a personalised option described simply as ‘Car Dressing’.
Hopefully it won’t be anything like these examples, where owners may have taken the dressing up thing a bit too far!
Appearing in the Argentina Autoblog Facebook page, this rather furry Fiat 500 was spotted in Buenos Aires after it had made an appearance at the annual Feria Puro Diseño, a Latin American design exhibition. Not the most practical bodywork I’m sure you’ll agree, but you certainly don’t need to worry about scratching the paintwork!
Or maybe, you fancy driving around in a car that looks like Pikachu? Showcased at the Pokemon fair in Sendai in March 2013 as part of a marketing campaign for the limited edition Pop-Bi version of the Fiat. Limited to only 50 cars, this Fiat will certainly get you noticed, but perhaps for all the wrong reasons!
What started out as a bet soon developed into the ultimate challenge for Italian stylist Maria Lucia Mugno. Maria spent over 150 hours completely covering the car in human hair and securing herself a place in the Guinness World Records. This strange vehicle even features a hair-covered steering wheel and is estimated to cost around £65,500. What it would look like after going through the car wash though is anyone’s guess!
Thankfully, the new Fiat 500 will be somewhat more stylish than these ridiculous versions and is set to take on the likes of other crossover cars like the Mini Countryman and the Nissan Juke.
