Fiat has teamed up with BVLGARI for a special-edition iteration of its all-new electric 500 supermini. The model is dubbed the B.500 BY BVLGARI — “MAI TROPPO,” which translates from Italian to “Never Too Much,” something BVLGARI wants to note despite its bejeweled appearance.
BVLGARI painted the Fiat 500 in the iconic house shade of “Imperial Saffron,” which is achieved by using special gold dust that comes from the brand’s production site in Valenza. Other unique touches include the car’s wheels, which are inspired by BVLGARI’s eight-pointed Condotti star and are finished to look like golden rays of light.
The dashboard is covered in colorful silk, hand-painted with the Maison’s signature motif, while the steering wheel’s logo is finished with a mixture of amethyst, citrine and topaz gemstones, and can even be worn as a brooch as it is detachable from the wheel.
Take a look at the one-of-a-kind B.500 BY BVLGARI — “MAI TROPPO” in the gallery above. It will be auctioned in July 2020 with all proceeds going to one of Leonardo Di Caprio’s environmental organizations.
