In their place is an open rear compartment that’s trimmed in slatted cork, that’s meant to mimic the decking on posh yachts. It’s even equipped with a shower to wash yourself off after a day at the beach.

Continuing the nautical theme, the show car also bears a low front deflector screen, though this can be replaced with a more traditional windscreen if buyers wish. The exterior is finished in a mix of pearl white and sky blue paint, with lashings of chrome trim on the mirrors and wheels - which are wrapped in white-walled tyres.

Inside, the Garage Italia model ditches the regular 500's seats in favour of a single bench, trimmed in waterproofed leather. The dash, the door cards, door sills and even the roll bar are all finished in leather, too.

Fiat to focus on 500 and Panda family

  Fiat to focus on 500 and Panda family FCA boss Sergio Marchionne has confirmed plans to realign the Fiat brand to focus on money makers like the fashionable 500 and practical Panda city cars. The news was revealed at the company’s five-year Capital Market Day presentation in Balocco, Italy. “Fiat in Europe is going to get redefined in a more exclusive area,” Marchionne said. “It is difficult for the mass markets to be profitable, and in our plan we have identified areas where Fiat works best.” As such, Mr Marchionne announced his plans to focus the Fiat brand around models that can “recoup the cost of electric development” – phasing out slow-sellers like the ageing Punto supermini.
