Fiat 500 GQ Edition First Photos

Premium small cars are looked at so much when they are launched that they quickly lose their impact. To keep models like the MINI Cooper or Fiat 500 selling for six years and more, the car companies opt for special editions to stir up interest. So, let's see what the Italians have cooking.

After the success of the Gucci and Diesel special editions, another one is coming to this year's Geneva Motor Show in March. It's called the GQ Edition, named after the famous fashion-forward magazine.

Arriving at dealerships in June this year, the 500 by GQ has a two-tone paintjob to distinguish it from its lesser cousins. The carbon black and metallic grey are speared by the chrome mirror caps and 16-inch alloy wheels with GQ logos on the door pillars added for good measure.

The car features the special orange Fiat 500 GQ logo fitted on the dashboard and leather seats with matching stitching. "The new upholstery was designed to offer the best possible ergonomics, guaranteeing comfort and character in a single solution. The internal look of the Gentleman's Car is completed by the sports pedal unit with aluminum effect and the leather gear knob," Fiat says.

The 500 GQ is definitely not a manly car, but it is available both as a saloon and a convertible, though that's no consolation. Five engine options will be available, 69 HP 1.2, 85 HP 0.9 TwinAir Turbo, 100 HP 1.4 16v, 69 HP 1.2 EasyPower and 95 HP 1.3 MultiJet 16v, all with manual gearboxes.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s.
