The Fiat 500 isn’t exactly what you’d call a sexy car; far from it, actually. Cute, yes, but not sexy…
But even with its rather simplistic design, the 500 is still an attractive car. In fact, it’s attractive enough for Italian design house, Castaga Milano, to build a unique, beach-ready design called the Tender2.
First introduced back in 2008, the 500 Tender2 is now headed to the U.S. and it has a number of new updates to go with the unique set of features it already had.
As the first car Castagna Milano is shipping to the US in almost 60 years, the one-off designed 500 Tender2 is quite a doozy of a compact hatchback. It’s been chopped up and rebuilt to look like a beach comber, complete with a yacht-like wood veneer, champagne cooler, narrow wood decks in place of doors, a pair of touchscreen units and, apparently, a shower.
It also features an electrically operated ladder in the rear and a bespoke luggage set, ensuring that this one-off creation remains as such: a dynamic one-of-a-kind.
A big congratulations to the man, Bert Dewik, who decided to have this 500 built. He reportedly paid quite a pretty penny for it to the tune of $104,000. But for the chance of owning a car nobody will ever have, we’d say that’s a pretty good deal.
