2012 SEMA Preview: Fiat 500 Beach Cruiser by Mopar

Article by Christian Andrei, on October 14, 2012

A beach cruiser theme is used on the widebody Fiat 500 that Mopar had released a teaser of last month. The Fiat 500 gets surf-friendly revisions in a retro-style build that will be introduced at the SEMA Show this year. Mopar was able to make the Fiat 500 body wider by a foot in the front and the rear before applying a charcoal, matte-grey finish to the exterior.

The traditional style fender flares are used on aluminum Mopar prototype wheels that will attract plenty of attention due to its bright red paint. To serve as a contrast to its matte exterior, the door handles, mirrors, front chin spoiler, and roof rack surfboard carrier get a brushed, satin finish. Vintage hot rod culture is evident on the hood and rear deck lid while the teak woodwork on the slats of the roof rack lends a distinctive accent.

This theme can also be observed inside. It gets Beach Cruiser satin-brushed trim bezels and ‘boardwalk’ inspired floor slats finished with teak woodwork. It also features dark grey naugahyde vinyl seats that are accented with red-and-white beach towel seat inserts.

When it comes to performance upgrades, Mopar gave it a cold-air intake and exhaust system while its chassis is tightened with a strut tower brace. The theme is punctuated with no less than a hula girl figurine on the front and center of the dash.
