World Debut of the Fiat 500 GQ at Geneva Motor Show

Since the Fiat 500 has become so popular, Italian automobile manufacturer has now collaborated with Gentlemen’s Quarterly (GQ), the men’s magazine edited by Condé Nast which sets the style and culture trends across the world each month to create a new limited edition of this cute car. The 500 GQ is based on the recently-unveiled 500S but it stands out for its exclusive and refined two-tone matt grey/carbon black livery.

Dedicated to the metropolitan man of the third millennium, new car comes with chrome-plated mirror covers, a ’GQ’ logo on the pillar, orange 500 logos on the hub caps, orange brake calipers (only on the 100 HP 1.4 engine version), a grey aesthetic liner and a set of 16-inch wheels.

The GQ gets a similar treatment on the inside, with the fancy orange Fiat 500 GQ logo fitted on the dashboard and leather seats with matching stitching, complete with sports pedal unit with aluminum effect and a leather-wrapped gear knob.

Buyers will be able to pair the GQ treatment with four of the 500’s available engines: the 69-horsepower 1.2-liter, the 85-horsepower 0.9-liter TwinAir, the 100-horsepower 1.4-liter petrol, and the 95-horsepower 1.3-liter MultiJet (all combined with a manual gearbox). Both hatchback and convertible GQs will be offered.

After debuting in Geneva, the 500 QG will land in showrooms across Europe next June. Unfortunatelly, there are currently no plans to offer it in United States. But, Fiat hasn’t explicitly said it won’t be.
