Fiat 500 Coupe Zagato Concept

The 81st edition of the Geneva Motor Show has a bundle of concepts from all car segments. The one you see in these pictures is based upon the very popular Fiat 500 and is the result of a partnership between the Fiat Group Automobiles’ Centro Stile and the Zagato design house.

Exhibited at the stand of the Italian automaker, the 500 Coupe Zagato Concept is said to have been inspired by the namesake predecessor built in 1950 by the well-known Italian bodyworker on the chassis of the first 500 model.

Looking at the car from the window and the line, the Zagato is identical to the standard production model, the three-door hatchback. What they’ve changed is the top which now features a sloping coupe-like roof that features Zagato’s trademark double-bubble design.

Other new additions to this concept are the very cool 17-inch chrome shadow alloy rims that have an all-new double spoked shape and synthetic inserts, covered by 205/40 R17 rubber and with four perforated brake discs. It also features a few burnished chrome exterior elements.

The Fiat 500 Coupe Zagato Concept is 3,550 mm long, 1,630 mm wide and 1,490 mm high, and it has a 2,300 mm wheelbase. Inside the cabin there is a 2+2 seating layout as well as a bespoke interior with sporty “diamond” seats that are trimmed in black and yellow two-tone leathers as well as other exclusive features.

Under that tiny hood there is a 2-cylinder gas engine that produces 105 hp @ 5,500 rpm and 114 lb.-ft (155 Nm) @ 2,500 rpm and promises to be fuel efficient and have CO2 emissions of only 95 g/km.
