Meet "the smallest yacht in the world."

Fiat’s idea of a boat on wheels is a special edition 500 created with help from yacht builder Riva. The nautical theme starts on the outside where the car’s body has received a lovely “Sera Blue” livery which you can’t have on any other 500 model. The finish is derived from Riva’s Aquariva Super yacht and on the open-top 500 is combined with a new shade of blue for the top while the regular model gets a black panoramic roof.

To make it stand out even more, Fiat and Riva gave the side mirror caps a chrome finish which you’ll also notice on the hood trim and the door handles. The side profile is adorned by a double aquamarine line that runs along the beltline while the hard-to-clean 16-inch alloy wheels featuring a 20-spoke design are also exclusive to this special edition.

Stepping inside, the Fiat 500 Riva has received hand-painted mahogany with maple inlay work for the central area of the dashboard along with special door sills and gear lever knob carved from a solid piece of mahogany wood. The seats come wrapped in tailor-made ivory leather from Poltrona Frau and with ivory stitching to mimic the Aquariva Super. As a final touch, the cabin has received a new set of floor mats with ivory hems and “Sera Blue” stitching to match the body’s look.

2016 Fiat 500 Riva special edition

Starting today, Fiat is taking orders for the special model and says the first 500 cars will feature a numbered limited edition badge which the customer will be able to personalize. Gasoline engine options include a 69-hp 1.2-liter unit and the punchier Twin Air 0.9-liter offered in 85 hp and 105 hp flavors. If you would rather have a diesel, the 500 Riva can be specified with a 95-hp 1.3-liter Multijet and depending on engine choice, buyers get to pick from five- or six-speed manual transmissions and the robotized Dualogic ‘box.

Fiat isn’t saying how much it costs, so you’ll have to contact your local dealer to find out details about pricing of “the smallest yacht in the world.”
