The car's made in collaboration with the popular magazine Gentleman's Quarterly.
Special edition cars are fun. They are exclusive and not everyone living on planet earth connects to the product the way a fan does. Take the latest special edition FIAT 500 for example. It has 'GQ' written on it (on the pillars and dashboard), it gets new design 16-inch alloy rims and a couple of other things that makes it different from the other 500s out there.
GQ stands for 'Gentleman's Quarterly', a well known men's magazine. And this car, called the FIAT 500 GQ Edition is "dedicated to the metropolitan man of the third millennium", according to the Italian car maker. So unless you're a fan of the magazine, this car doesn't make any sense for you. But yes, it's true that it looks brilliant, especially in the matte grey and carbon black scheme, but for some reason Autoblog says that this specific coulour won't be available when the car goes on sale in Europe. Why Fiat, why?
It will be available in both hardtop and convertible configurations. Five engine options will be available, including the 0.9-litre Twinair and 1.3-litre Multijet units. A 1.4-litre petrol engine (101PS) will be the preferred choice of those who want their 500 GQ to be as exciting to drive as the way it looks, while a 70PS 1.2-litre petrol will be available for the economy conscious.
