Fiat 500 Cafe Racer Teased ahead of SEMA Unveiling

Adding custom touches to the Fiat 500 is nothing new, not even for the US market, but the little Italian is set to receive something trully special for this year's edition of the SEMA show.
We are talking about the Fiat 500 Cafe Racer, a project that's being teased in the video above. The car is built around the concept of speed and it will be a stripped-down, agile racer.

In the clip, exterior designer Nick Malachowski tells us that the inspiration for the project came for the early motorcycle riders who stripped their bikes in order to keep the weight as low as possible.

Thus, the Fiat 500 Cafe Racer will use Lexan windows, a chopped roof, shaved door handles, lightweight bucket seats, as well as a lowering suspension and an exhaust system with tips on the side.

This is just a part of the story, with the connection to the cafe racers being even deeper. The car will use a trailer to carry around a custom bike that will match the vehicle's design.
