At the 2011 Geneva Motor Show Zagato and Fiat have presented a coupé version of the 500, featuring a new silhouette and the trademark “double bubble” roof.


Fiat 500 Coupe ZagatoCreated by Zagato in collaboration of Fiat Group Automobiles’ Centro Stile, the 500 Coupé Zagato is inspired by the cars created by the Italian coachbuilder in the early 50’s based on the Fiat 500 and 600 models.

The designers have modified the exterior of the 500 giving the silhouette a more aggressive appearance and adding the characteristic “double hump” roof, a typical stying cue of Zagato.

The sporty look is underlined by the lower stance and the 17-inch “chrome shadow” wheels with a new double spoked design and drilled brake discs.

The Pop Yellow color of the prototype is a specific three-layer hue tending towards white which emphasizes the vehicle contours.

Compared to the original 500, the 500 Coupé Zagato has remained unchanged in size – both outside and inside – apart from the smaller rear passenger headroom.

In the cabin, the seats are inspired by the traditional “diamond” seats and feature high-tech fabric coupled with yellow chamois leather and the black natural leather of the surrounds.

The small concept is powered by a new 0.85 liter TwinAir engine with specific “turbomatching” (engine-turbocharger coupling) that allows of an output of 105 hp – a remarkable 124 hp/liter specific power – awhile maintaining low CO2 emissions of 95 g/km.
