Italian designer Zagato has taken in the Fiat 500 and produced one incredible coupe.
It seems like everybody has an opinion on what the Fiat 500 should be, with added emphasis on the should. Famed Italian designer Gucci believes the 500 is swank, trendy and a tad bit ostentatious. Fiat tried to give it a bumblebee-like persona for introduction into Japan, nicknamed the Pop-Bi. Italian designers Alessandro Camorali and Alessio Minchella collaborated to create the 500 Marcia Corta, a throwback 500 with stylish and affordable parts. Italian sports-carmaker Abarth thinks it's the little racer which debuted at the LA Auto Show.
Or they think it is a luxury ride as seen on their 500C Anniversary Edition. They seem, like most others, unable to make up their mind about the little Fiat coupe. The legendary Italian design house Zagato brought their Fiat 500 Coupe Concept to this year's Geneva Motor Show. Based on said concept, Scagliarini Motorsports has produced the first Fiat 504 Coupe Zagato Elaborata. The Zagato Elaborata was built for a client in the U.A.E. and is equipped with the Abarth SS' 178hp engine. It has most of the concept's features, such as a carbon fiber body kit which includes a bumper, grille, air vents, dashboard kit, roof spoiler and rear diffuser.
The Elaborata features much of the same Zagato design elements, except it completely blocks out the two rear passenger windows. The body kit is made of carbon fiber and includes a front splitter, bumper grill, air vents, dash kit, door panels, roof spoiler and rear diffuser. One big noticeable difference is that the back windows are totally blocked out. "The day we announced the Elaborata we started receiving emails from nearly all corners of the globe. As of now we are preparing a single copy of the Scagliarini 504, but we have an agreement in place for a limited [production] run based on demand," remarked Scagliarini Motorsports Director Michael Salvarani. Most of us are familiar with Zagato's work and with their take on the Fiat 500, they surely did not disappoint.
