Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) Australia has released a special edition version of its 500 light car, dubbed the Collezione Spring Edition.
Limited to just 70 units, the customised 500 is available in hatchback and cabriolet guise, starting at $21,990 plus on-road costs for the base five-speed manual.
The hatchback is also available with Fiat's five-speed 'Dualogic' automatic transmission at $23,490, and the Cabriolet is exclusively matched with the self-shifter at $27,490.
For comparison, the standard 500 range starts at $17,990 for the base Pop, stretching to $25,490 for the automatic Lounge convertible.
Fiat says the Collezione Spring Edition gains over $3100 of additional aesthetic features.
Speaking of which, the Italian micro car features a two-tone ‘bianco gelato’ and ‘lunare grey’ paint finish, unique 16-inch alloy wheels, chrome touches on the bonnet, mirror covers and bumper inserts, striped seat inserts, Collezione floor mats, and bespoke badging.
The cabriolet also gets a rear Collezione badge and a grey soft top.
Standard kit includes a leather-wrapped gear knob and steering wheel, a 7.0-inch 'Uconnect' touchscreen multimedia system with Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, a TFT instrument display, climate control, fog lights and rear parking sensors.
The vehicle is powered by a 1.2-litre four-cylinder engine that delivers 51kW/102Nm, returning a combined fuel economy figure of 4.9 litres per 100 kilometers or 4.8L/100km with the automatic transmission option box ticked.
