Fiat Announces Limited Edition 500C GQ Edition

Fiat has announced an all-new limited-edition version of its popular 500C. The special edition comes from a partnership with Fiat and Condé Nast producing a Fiat 500C GQ Edition. The special edition car is powered by a 1.4-liter MultiAir Turbo engine.

"The new Fiat 500c GQ Edition showcases the design talents of the FIAT brand and the inspiration of the style authority of GQ, to highlight how the brand continues to push the envelope when it comes to lifestyle partnerships with like-minded brands," said Jason Stoicevich, Head of FIAT Brand for North America, Chrysler Group LLC. "The FIAT brand created a limited-production edition with custom appointments that reflect an individual who always looks sharp, lives smart and finds freedom through the precision and turbocharged power of a driver's car."

On the outside, the vehicle gets a more pronounced front fascia with large air intakes and performance side sills. The vehicle also has special 16-inch split five-spoke wheels. The interior also gets special premium materials and unique color treatment. The car produces 160 hp and up to 170 pound-foot of torque using a five-speed manual transmission. Pricing is unannounced at this time, but the car will be available in early 2014.
