Fiat 500X "Black Tie" Show Car

Fiat 500X "Black Tie"


The Fiat 500X "Black Tie" show car debuted at the Geneva Motor Show last week. The car is a collaboration between Fiat and Garage Italia Customs and showcases the elegant side of the 500X. Using materials normally reserved for posh homes and exquisite clothing, Fiat 500X "Black Tie" looks like it should be parked in front of the home of a wealthy Italian entrepreneur - which is exactly who the designer Lapo Elkann is. For those who don't know, Lapo Elkann, noted fashion icon and a regular on the world's best-dressed list is also an heir to the Fiat empire.

Elkann through his company Garage Italia Customs lavished his celebrated taste onto the new Fiat 500X. Outside, the 500X "Black Tie" is wrapped in a combination of chrome plated film and paint in a herringbone pattern. The roof features varnished solid wood roof rails and handles.

Inside, Elkann uses quality materials to continue the elegant theme. Black Alcantara is used to cover the dashboard, panel structure and tunnel. The lower pillar lining, kick plate and floor mats are also finished in black Alcantara with dark stitching.

Black denim is used for the roof and upper pillar linings. The seats combine British-style cashmere, black leather edging and ice-color stitching with black denim trim. Cashmere and Alcantara are also used on the door panel inserts.

Picking up the exterior's wood trim theme, the inner door moulding, central console, dashboard accents and the entire luggage cover panel are made of solid wood.

Cars like the Fiat 500X "Black Tie" and the Mopar customized 500X give Fiat enthusiasts ideas on what they can do to their 500X. Mopar is working on more than 100 accessories for the 500X, many of which will be available shortly after the 500X hits the streets later this spring. By this time next year, we predict the Fiat 500X will be one of the most personalized cars in its segment!
