The Fiat 500 Gets Colour Therapy

The stylish Italian manufacturer has decided to put a rather different complexion on the Fiat 500 by bringing us the Colour Therapy trim.

If we said that it was inspired by the 70s, you might begin to think that it was a concept from the decade that taste forgot (don't worry – "Avocado Green" is not an option). Fiat has shown plenty of taste though by picking five colours that ought to leave other city cars in the shade.

Setting the right tone, Fiat has gone for the subtle Tech House Grey, New Age Cream, Volare Blue, a passionate Pasadoble Red, and a brilliantly summery Countrypolitan Yellow.

The exteriors of these Fiat 500 models also have a tinge of the 1970s. While you'll have to upgrade to get the white alloy wheels, most come with fashionably retro white and silver wheel covers as standard. The Colour Therapy trim also features white mirror covers and a white aerial to help the bold paint jobs really pop.

Inside the cars drivers get a pleasantly chunky pool-ball gear knob, electric windows and air conditioning as standard (so you'll feel as cool as you'll look), plus either the 1.2-litre or 0.9-litre TwinAir engine under the bonnet. Such low emissions are definitely not a thing of the past.

Whether you're looking to paint the town red, fancy a more mellow yellow or want a laid-back hue, the Fiat 500 Colour Therapy is the city car for you!
