Fiat has given us our first glimpse into its Fiat Fullback Show Car at the 2016 Geneva International Motor Show. This new Show Car is derived from a Fiat Professional vehicle of the same name that was unveiled at the 2015 Dubai International Motor Show.
It is designed for those who want a vehicle that can be used for work and play without having to sacrifice any element. In a more altruistic sense, the Fiat Fullback Show Car represents a blend of the brand’s functional soul and a highly personal and distinct design.
Since the new Fiat Fullback Show Car is not only durable and reliable but is also highly versatile, it is suitable to take into places where customers mix pleasure with challenge. Its name “fullback” is derived from a basic position in American football or rugby who is in charge of the last of defense, which means that this player should be able to take any challenge presented by its opponents.
The same should be true for the new Fiat Fullback Show Car – it takes on any challenge in any situation. It is powered by a 2.4-liter turbo diesel engine providing up to 180 HP and is mated to a five-speed automatic transmission and an all-wheel drive system with rear electronic differential.
On the front end, the new Fiat Fullback Show Car features a special grille featuring chrome-plated segments for a 3D appeal. Additionally, the front of the pickup is marked by a dedicated skid plate for a more imposing and off-road appearance.
The new Fiat Fullback Show Car is also fitted with Bi-Xenon headlights and stylish navigation system. It features an exterior that is wrapped with Liquid Metal Grey and an interior that features black leather and anodized copper dashboard inserts.
It also boasts of certain design details and accessories that make it as appealing as it is versatile -- including exclusive matt black element like mirrors and door handles and the Sport Bar and the extensive side steps. The new Fiat Fullback Show Car rides on 20-inch alloy wheel rims with diamond black inserts on the spokes.
Aside from the Fiat Fullback Show Car, the Italian carmaker also revealed to the world the latest iteration of the Fiat 500S at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show. This comes just months after the launch of the Fiat 500 in the United Kingdom in in September.
The Fiat 500S -- unlike the FIAT 500 – features a rear spoiler, special side skirts, and sports bumpers. The rear privacy glass, chrome-finished exhaust tailpipe, and bold rear grille are part of the exterior of the new 500S.
