The high style Fiat 500 has once again gathered a top award. This time the model is the elegant Fiat 500c by Gucci and the award is for “Best Small Convertible of the Year” named by the Southern Automotive Media Association (SAMA) during its “Topless in Miami” event held on June 14.
The annual “Topless in Miami” event brings together 60 professional automotive journalists to pick out the best open top cars available. This year the competition was stiff and included: Smart, Nissan Murano Convertible, Nissan 370 Z Roadster, Infiniti G Convertible, Chrysler 200 Convertible, Jeep Wrangler, Fiat 500 Gucci, Mazda MX-5 Miata, Audi TTS Roadster, Volkswagen EOS, Mercedes-Benz SLK55 AMG, Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG, Mercedes-Benz SL550, Jaguar XKR-S, and MINI Cooper S Roadster.
When the dust settled, the Fiat 500c by Gucci took top honors for “Best Small Convertible of the Year.” In a press release issued by FIAT USA earlier today, Jaime Florez, President of SAMA is quoted:
“We are glad that FIAT brand is present for a second year at our Topless in Miami event. We had very strong competitors this year, and the Fiat 500c by Gucci captured the judges’ votes by showcasing how chic style and personal transportation can go hand in hand in a formula that only Italy could create.”
This is the second time in a row the Fiat 500c has been awarded “Best Small Convertible of the Year” by SAMA. Read about last year's win here - 2012 Fiat 500c Best Small Convertible of the Year
