The Fiat 500 is a relative newbie in the US market so Chrysler is trying to give the little Italian hatchback the proper introduction to American consumers. What better way to do that than to showcase a couple of modified 500s at the SEMA Auto Show?

The first of the two programs is called the Fiat 500 Titanium, one that comes with aggressive styling and premium sport-luxury details. The car was dressed up with a Matte Titanium finish that highlights the car’s sculpted front fascia. There’s also a satin black fascia insert that has integrated LED fog lamps while the circular projector headlamps are finished in gloss black to complement the titanium finish. Mopar also added lowering springs on the car, as well as new side skirts, a large liftgate spoiler that adds downforce for improved stability, a new diffuser, and a set of 16" Matte Titanium wheels with front-and rear-brake calipers. Other elements of the 500 Titanium that are worth noting are the Matte Titanium exterior door handles, mirror caps, a license plate brow, and to make sure the car packs improved performance, a Mopar cold-air intake and Mopar cat-back exhaust.

Meanwhile, the interior of the 500 Titanium speaks loudly of high-performance luxury that’s emphasized by Titanium Metallic accents. The lightweight and high-performance front seats come with massive side bolsters. Likewise, the seats have been wrapped in black leather and further accented with Titanium Metallic vinyl seat centers. The seats also feature a black leather center stripe with Metallic Gray accent stitching while the Titanium Metallic vinyl door bolsters go extremely well with the Matte Titanium instrument panel and gauge cluster brow.

Nothing speaks more to the American auto market than a well-dressed vehicle. On all corners, the Fiat 500 Titanium fits that bill.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More

It only looks like their other model Abarth, but despite that I can say that it still looked so impressive and classy because on its cute platform and sleek body paint.

What I really love about this Fiat 500 titanium is the fact that it is a small car and had a sport-luxury details! smiley I must also say that it looks so cute on that platform.

I wonder if what will be the whole image of this Titanium? Anyway, I think it’s quite very striking on its sleek body paint, and I hope to see to other updated article of this one soon. smiley
