Fiat will unveil the production version of the Fiat 500 Cattiva at this years Concorso Italiano Auto Show August 16th. The Fiat 500 Cattiva was first shown at the Detroit Auto Show back in January. The blacked out two tone paint scheme captures the essence of the term Cattiva, which loosely translates to Devilish or Naughty in Italian. Readers of Fiat500USA.com will be quite familiar with the 500 Cattiva concept car that was previously described in the link below:
The highlight of the Cattiva concept is the liberal use of blacked-out trim including; a gloss black painted roof and rear spoiler, blacked out tail lights, headlights and turn signals and sport wheels with black painted accents. The production Fiat 500 Cattiva does differ from the concept car in a few exciting ways. First, there will be two versions of the Cattiva - one based on the 500 Sport and another on the 500T Turbo. On top of that, Fiat will offer additional paint options for the car besides the Rame (copper) color made famous by the show car. The new colors include: Nero Puro (straight black), Rosso (red), Bianco (white) Argento (silver), Granito Lucente (granite crystal), and Luce Blue (light blue, 500 Sport only).
The interior of the Fiat 500 Cattiva also gets the special treatment with a Matte Nero instrument panel and Nero leather-wrapped shift knob and sport steering wheel with hand-stitched Argento accent thread. This thread is also used on the standard sport seats.
Pricing for the limited production Fiat 500 Cattiva starts at $18,350 for the 500 Sport version, and $20,350 for the 500T Turbo model.* Expect to see the Fiat 500 Cattiva at Fiat Studios during the fourth quarter of this year.
