Fiat and Star Wars continue to be a partnership well avenue, with the premiere of the “Episode VII: The Awakening of the Force“. After introducing the Fiat 500e Stormtrooper, get new custom units of the Fiat 500, taking as inspiration other characters of the galactic universe.

Garage Italia Customs has been in charge of these Fiat 500-based ‘Star Wars’. For those not in the know, this is a company owned by Lapo Elkann (grandson of Gianni Agnelli), specializing in the customization on models of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, which always seeks to provide a lot of design and exclusivity in their creations.


Inside the Fiat 500 R2-D2

well, taking advantage of the premiere european “Star Wars: The Force Awakens“, Garage Italy presented in Zurich two new firsts, the Fiat 500 R2-D2 and the Fiat 500 BB-8, for the premiere of the film in Switzerland. In addition will have twelve other Fiat 500e Stormtrooper, as shown in the past Salon Los Angeles 2015, for exhibition in several european countries (among them Spain).

The cute Fiat 500 seems ideal for an endearing character as R2-D2: Fiat 500 R2-D2 wants to remind you of the mythical droid with its colors blue and white, present on the exterior and interior. The interior features materials such as a dashboard, steering wheel and seats trimmed in leather and Alcantara, with stitching in contrast. Other highlights include the tinted glass, logos of R2-D2 and alloy wheels bicolor.

The other big news is the Fiat 500 BB-8, based on the new droid, which debuted in “The Awakening of the Force“. In this case the colors are centred on the orange-gold and the grey: the teacher not only includes your body, but also all of the crystals of the vehicle . In the interior, again we have leather and Alcantara everywhere, with the same customization bittern in its outer.

None of these Fiat 500 will be on sale, seeking to simply pay homage to the universe ‘Star Wars’ from a perspective very Italian and, of step, to get more visibility and revenue in the media.
