It would appear that matt black is the in vogue colour of 2010 with news today from Fiat that following on from their successful “Fiat 500 Pink,” another limited 500 is on its way to showrooms though this time in a more masculine guise.
Dubbed the BlackJack to “reinforce the character of this car: irreverent and mysterious,” there will be just 200 examples of this particular special edition 500, available in 1.2 and 1.4 Sport specifications.
Those who fork out for the 500 BlackJack will receive an individual matt black paint finish, mouldings, door handles, door mirrors and plate holder in metallic effect, 16-inch alloy wheels in matt black with red coach line, red brake callipers (1.4 only) and special carpet mats.
The 500 BlackJack – like all Fiat 500s – comes as standard with Fiat’s Start&Stop, which stops the engine automatically whenever traffic conditions bring the car to a complete halt, and restarts it immediately the driver wants to move off again.
The new car costs £12,165 OTR (1.2) and £13,565 OTR (1.4).
