Fiat will be showcasing starting today at 2014 Vans US Open of Surfing the 500L Vans concept.

Fiat got its inspiration for this concept form the well-known producer of shoes VANS, quite popular among skaters and surfers. Designed for those who spend a lot of time at the beach, the concept features an interesting front grille with four rings of LED daytime running lights while below them are the usual fog lights providing optimal lighting.

The 500L Vans concept adopts a three-tone exterior paint scheme and VANS' checkerboard pattern on the roof where there's a rack holding two surfboards along with additional equipment. On the inside, Fiat has plastered onto the dashboard various VANS stickers and wrapped around the seats in canvas. As a final touch, the storage bins and pedals have been covered in the popular waffle sole tread pattern.

On display until August 3, the Fiat 500L Vans concept comes with a stock 4-cylinder, 1.4-liter turbocharged MultiAir gasoline engine delivering 160 bhp (119 kW) through a 6-speed manual transmission.
