The 500c GQ was developed with input from Condé Nast.
Fiat has traveled to the Concorso Italiano in Monterey, California, to unveil the 500c GQ, a limited-edition of the pint-sized city car developed jointly with fashion magazine CondÃ© Nast.
Offered in black, white and granite crystal, the GQ stands out from the regular 500c thanks to an Abarth-inspired front bumper equipped with a large air intake, dual-spoke alloy wheels with red center caps, an air diffuser integrated into the rear bumper and QG badges on both B-pillars. The headlights, tail lamps and parking lights feature a gloss black finish.
Inside, the 500c GQ gains a leather-wrapped three-spoke steering wheel with a white inner rim and edition-specific sport seats upholstered in black leather with a thin strip of contrasting white leather and Alcantara inserts.
The 500c GQ is powered by a turbocharged 1.4-liter MultiAir four-cylinder engine lifted straight from the Abarth parts bin. Linked to a five-speed manual transmission, the four-banger sends 160 horsepower and 170 lb-ft. of torque to the front wheels via a five-speed manual transmission, enough to propel the car from zero to 62 mph in a little over seven seconds.
Following its debut in California alongside the limited-edition 500 Cattiva, the 2014 Fiat 500c GQ will go on sale throughout the United States early next year. Pricing information and availability will be announced closer to its on-sale date.
