Paying hommage to the city where it's being introduced, the limited edition model is based on the 500 Riva, itself a special version of the cutesy city car.

Billed as being the “most beautiful 500 ever,” Fiat’s latest take on its popular petite model carries over the nautical theme of the Riva and wears a “Sera Blue” paint mirroring the hues used by Riva’s Aquariva Super boats. Created by Fiat France, the car has received a unique blue top and features chrome-plated side mirror caps, hood trim, and door handles to make it stand out from the regular 500.

Running along the car’s beltline is a double aquamarine stripe to enhance the nautical theme of the limited-run model, one that’s based on the 500 Riva previously described by FCA as the “the smallest yacht in the world.” It sits on unique 16-inch alloy wheels featuring a 20-spoke design and adorned with blue accents to complement the body’s finish.

As a final touch, Fiat France has placed Riva’s logo on the wheel arch, trunk lid, as well as on the side panel insert and on the dashboard. Speaking of the latter, it has a hand-painted mahogany finish with maple inlay work also done by hand. Additional mahogany details are adorning the gear knob and door sills, while a wood inlay has been applied onto the steering wheel to make the car feel a bit more special. The seats are covered in ivory Poltrona Frau leather featuring ivory stitching to provide a bit of contrast.

Fiat mentions production is going to be capped at just 50 cars and all of them are going to be sold exclusively in France. Customers will only be able to have it as a cabriolet with either the 69-hp 1.2-liter engine or the beefier 0.9-liter TwinAir available with 85 hp and 105 hp. The cars will have all the goodies of the regular 500 Riva, including LED daytime running lights, fog lights, automatic AC, navigation, DAB, Beats Audio, and other amenities.
