In order to sell more 500`s, Fiat is introducing another special edition of the city car. It is called Fiat 500 Riva and it is based on the facelifted version of the Italian car. Almost 60 years since the launch of the first 500 and since Riva launched its first boat, the Riva, the two Italian companies joined forces for a special edition. 

Aimed at motorists seeking the same exclusivity of Aquariva, the Fiat 500 Riva is finished in "Sera Blue", an exclusive colour for this limited edition model and one of the most popular for the Aquariva Super, successor to the legendary Aquarama.

The convertible version also gets a new blue soft top, created exclusively for this version, while the hatchback gets a panoramic glass roof as standard. Also on the outside the mirror caps have a chrome finish, as do the handles and the bonnet trim. A double aquamarine line runs along the belt line, enhancing the soft profile of the 500 and recalling the beautiful line of a yacht, while brand new 16-inch, 20-spoke alloy wheels, with a special blue finish, have been created especially for the FIAT 500 Riva. Finally, the logo of the nautical legend is placed on the boot lid, the wheel arch and the wooden insert of the side moulding.

Inside, the dashboard is finished in hand-painted mahogany with maple inlay work. The wood is applied onto an ultralight carbon shell to ensure stability, flexibility and perfect strength over the lifetime of the vehicle. The maple inlays are inserted by hand, making each creation unique.

The door sills and gear knob are also carved from a solid piece of mahogany, while the seats are trimmed in an exclusive ivory leather created by Poltrona Frau, in colours and materials reminiscent of the exclusive ambience of Aquariva Super. Even the floor mats are especially created with ivory hems and contrasting "Sera Blue" stitching, as is the boot mat that also features a wood insert with Riva lettering.

The new Fiat 500 Riva will be available in the UK from the end of August with the 1.2 69hp, TwinAir 85hp and TwinAir 105hp engine options. The UK pricing for Fiat 500 Riva range will be announced closer to its launch date later in the summer.
