Flashy Vehicles: Gold and Diamonds Fiat 500C by Fenice Milano

rst impression, the Gold and Diamonds Fiat appears to be a white car with gold trimmings. The white paint actually has a golden tinge to it. This is because the paint contains 24-karat gold particles. The hood on top has fabric finished with gold thread.
The interiors of the car have made generous use of teak inserts, diamonds and leather. Teak and leather make up the wheel, with gold embellishments adding to the effect. One of the star attractions of the Gold and Diamonds 200hp is the driving console.
An additional USP of the car is the Apple iPad Supreme Edition designed by Liverpool-based Stuart Hughes. The iPad is placed on the upper end of the central console and is fitted with GPS, an audio system and Wi-Fi connectivity.
The Gold and Diamonds Fiat has had its regular engine upgraded. Car engines modification expert Romeo Ferraris tweaked the engine of the gold Fiat. So the $500,000 car that will be heading to China will be armed with a complete exhaust system, an ECU tune and an engine kit fitted with a new turbine.
