Fiat 500 Facelift is Dressed In Calfskin Leather for a Noble Cause

Weeks after it made its first public outing, the 2016 Fiat 500 facelift is now busy with noble causes. Appointed the leading act at the I Defend Gala 2015, the 500C in the adjacent photo gallery is a one-off creation that’s wearing calfskin leather and carries a picnic basket.

Slated to go under the hammer at the first edition of a charity event meant to support the Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights Europe foundation, the 2016 Fiat 500C at hand is expected to fetch big bucks for human rights. It's a noble cause, alright.

The foundation’s main mission is to defend the most basic and the most universal values of human rights. Of the most important priorities the foundation, an important place is taken by empowering the individual to generate change and to involve supporting defenders of human rights.

Painted in Bossa Nove White, the 2016 Fiat 500C here was personalized by a dude called Stefano Conticelli. If you were wondering why this one-off 500C is wearing fine-quality calfskin leather on its body panels, that is because Stefano uses leather as a medium to express the excellence of Italian products such as the 500.

Based on the 1.2 69 HP Lounge trim level, this city car ups the ante with a picnic basket applied on the hatch door. Of course, the basket is made of calfskin leather as well. On a different aesthetic note, the side mirrors are covered in mahogany as a tribute to the extremely expensive but gorgeous Riva boats.

What’s your guesstimate winning bid on this one-of-a-kind Fiat 500?
