To Celebrate the Icon Barbie Doll's 50th Anniversary. FIAT & Barbie have created this One-of-a-kind 500 Barbie Edition. This is a partnership five decades in the making, since the redesigned model was itself released on the 50th anniversary of the 500 back in 2007. Cross-promoted by the Mattel toy company, the Barbie car has a "nail varnish" coat of paint and luxury Alcantara fabrics. There's a light-up vanity mirror (but of course) and crystals throughout the interior (look at the steering wheel!) and on the hubcaps. The car is in London through Monday and will then continue its big European tour.
The FIAT 500 limited Barbie edition is a car with lots of charm: just like Barbie® herself. The gleaming paintwork resembles varnish and definitely makes for a eye-catching effect, achieved with deep lacquered colour using ultra fine aluminium plunged in deep, up-to-the-minute pink. The seating is upholstered in strikingly soft fabrics: silver laminated Alcantara® is not only trendy but plush to the touch and its glimmer bounces as far as the roof panel. Then there are mats enhanced with natural silk yarn and sleek viscose, plus a LED-decked vanity. There`s More. Crystals sparkle on interior bezels, hubcaps, outer window mouldings and antenna and even outline the doll`s famed silhouette on the pillars.This Fiat 500 show car also has its own glossy cover, featuring the distinctive Sixties version of the Fiat 500 and a Barbie® autograph.
