Fiat 500 Cabrio spotted undisguised
It looks like fiat went for tradition with the 500 convertible. Back in September we saw a tester thatlooked like it was using a "rolling roof" for open top motoring. Now we can confirm from this spy shot (presumably from a photo shoot) that Fiat will be using this ultimate-sunroof style to drop its top.
The original 500 convertible utilized a fabric top section that ran from the top of the windshield to the base of the trunk. The fabric area could be peeled back (almost like a sardine can). When opened, the sold metal frame that surrounded the roof section remained.
We should get our first official glimpse of Fiat 500C at the Geneva Motor Show. Sales will begin in Europe (its still not imported to the U.S.) this spring at about a $2200 over the coupe version. The engine lineup should remain the same as the coupe, which means one diesel and two gas engines making between 69 and 100 hp.
