Next to the 500 by Gucci , Fiat also brought the 500 Coupe Zagato to the Geneva Motor Show. This 2+2 concept was created by the Italian company in cooperation with Zagato and is inspired by the namesake predecessor built in the 1950 by the famous Italian coach-builder.
The concept comes with a completely revamped exterior style and a more aggressive appeal. In addition, the unique shape of the roof features the characteristic "double hump", the true emblem of Zagato , teaming the lowering of the car with retaining excellent interior comfort. The concept will be distinguished by burnished chrome exterior elements, 17" "chrome shadow" wheels with a brand new double spoked shape and synthetic inserts.
The concept is powered by a TwinAir engine that delivers a total of 105 HP and 155 Nm of torque at 2,500 rpm.
UPDATE 03/15/11: While it was first introduced as a concept, the quirky Fiat 500 Coupe Zagato may be green-lighted for production soon. Designed by legendary Italian design house Zagato, the stylish concept Fiat 500 could be designated with a ’limited edition’ tag, and even better, could also make its way in the US. If these prove to be accurate, there’s no telling what kind of changes will be made from the concept version, although as a limited edition model, we can expect it to keep some of custom features that makes this Fiat 500 Coupe stand out from the rest.
