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.”
