The A-line which runs from the base of the windscreen to the base of the rear window remains in tact, but we are just missing the roof area which will gain a retractable Textile cover instead.
The open-top version of the Fiat 500 stepped out for a breather and luckily our spies were there to catch it. But a close look at the model reveals that this model is quite clearly sporting a set of B-Pillars and C-Pillars confirming that Fiat are in fact working on TWO cabrio versions of the Fiat 500.
As we can see the A-line which runs from the base of the windscreen to the base of the rear window on this semi-convertible prototype remains in tact, but we are just missing the roof area which will gain a retractable textile cover instead. This should keep the development costs of this model down to a minimum as Fiat would be able to use the body structure from the regular 500.
Rumours have stated a 2009 Geneva Show debut has been planned by the Italian automaker but we wouldn't want to rule out the possibility of a surprise appearance in Paris next month.
