Fiat 500 in Funk White
One of the popular paint colors for the Fiat 500 is Funk White. It is a brilliant pearlescent paint that is usually reserved for high end cars due to its extremely labor intensive paint process. The paint is applied in three coats, with two base coats applied in two different directions (which gives the paint its glittering, pearlescent effect) and then a high gloss clear coat. Normal metallic paint is just 2 coats, a base color coat and then a clear coat.
Because of this process, only a limited number of Funk White Fiat 500s are able to be produced daily at the factory. This figure was 3 per day when last reported. Here are a couple of studio shots of a Funk White Fiat 500.
