Fiat 500e stormtrooper by Garage Italia Customs (1)

Η Garage Italia Customs του Lapo Elkann στο Los Angeles παρουσίασε ένα βελτιωμένο Fiat 500e. Το Fiat 500e stormtrooper όπως το ονόμασε, πρόκειται για ένα one-off ηλεκτρικό 500 το οποίο είναι βαμμένο σε λευκό και μαύρο χρώμα, με τον χρωματισμό του να προέρχεται από τα First Order stormtroopers της ταινίας Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Το μικρό 500αράκι διαθέτει φιμέ παράθυρα, First Order σήματα, μαύρες ζάντες με λευκά ελαστικά της Pirelli και στο εσωτερικό υπάρχουν λευκές/μαύρες δερμάτινες και Alcantara επενδύσεις.

AWAKENS THE FORCE WITH THE 500E STORMTROOPER

A month before the release of the seventh episode of Star Wars, Garage Italia Customs (www.garageitaliacustoms.com) presents itself at the Los Angeles Auto Show (November 17th – 29th) with a special version of the electric 500 dedicated to the most famous sci-fi saga: the 500e stormtrooper. The showcar was commissioned by FCA to Lapo Elkann’s company which is specialized in tailormade customisation on all vehicles, in order to support the worldwide promotion campaign for the launch of “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” by Lucasfilm. The two-coloured livery of the 500e stormtrooper is inspired by the armor of the First Order Legion. Moreover, the bodywork is custom painted with the same white/black chromatic match. The windshield and the side windows are wrapped with a 100% tinted film to bring out the immediately recognizable visor and helmet of the First Order stormtrooper. The Fiat emblems have been replaced by customised badges with the First Order insignia. The same logo is also to be found on the wheel rims painted in full black to match the Pirelli limited edition white sidewall tyres.

The cabin has an immediate impact for its complex trimmings and the leather upholstery which also characterise the dashboard and door panels. The Garage Italia Customs Style Centre, directed by Carlo Borromeo, has chosen to match a particular type of perforated black leather for the seats and their backing with a precious kind of white leather which covers the seat sides. The final result is further embellished with Alcantara® piping and a central panel in black leather with contrasting stitching. We find the same care for detail on the headrests, where the First Order insignia has been hand-embroidered, and on the steering wheel, which has been finely upholstered in twocoloured leather. All is in line with the monochromatic match concept of this showcar.

The dashboard is painted white and the Star Wars logo is easily recognisable on the passenger side. All plastic is varnished black and white with a special lacquered effect and the headliner and pillars are covered in white Alcantara®. Much like the stormtrooper armour itself, the 500e personalized by Garage Italia Customs brings together modern technology and functionality, but with added classic Italian design, making it the perfect vehicle to take on the galaxy in style.
