Best of all, it's actually going into production.
If you’re not familiar with theillustrious past, the summer of 1958 marked the debut of the city car’s very first special edition that was dubbed Fiat 500 Jolly a.k.a. “Spiaggina.” Now, 60 years later, the Italian brand is celebrating the anniversary with the unveiling of a showcar that unsurprisingly goes by the name of Spiaggina. It represents a joint effort between Garage Italia and Pininfarina, with the two deciding to go with the roofless version eschewing the rear seats as a nod to the traditional model from many decades ago.
CEO Sergio Marchionne curses FCA spokesman for emissions cheating denial
Fiat Chrysler Chief Executive Officer Sergio Marchionne reprimanded the company's top U.S. spokesman for issuing press releases about Fiat's vehicle emissions practices days after Volkswagen's disclosure in September 2015 that the German automaker had used illegal software to evade emissions tests, documents released Monday show. Lawyers suing Fiat Chrysler Automobiles in a securities case filed excerpts of an email from Marchionne to Gualberto Ranieri, then the company's U.S. spokesman, in a filing in federal court in New York criticizing him for saying that the company does not use defeat devices.
It’s finished in a lovely two-tone Sky Blue and Pearl White livery with a matching interior featuring a custom bench reminiscent of cars from the 1960s. The waterproof upholstery further contributes to the retro vibe, as do the plethora of chrome accents harkening back to cars from a long time ago. The vintage alloy wheels and the speedster-esque lowered windscreen are a nice touch, much like the rear cargo area covered in slatted cork mimicking the teak floor boards of high-end yachts.
While Garage Italia describes the Spiaggina as a one-off, you’ll be happy to hear that all these features will be available for purchase in a short while. Customers will be able to get the car with any of the Fiat 500’s engines. To ensure the chassis’ rigidity, Pininfarina assisted Garage Italia during the structural reinforcement work and engineered the rear roll bar.
