Fiat announces special 500C GQ Edition [w/video]

2014 Fiat 500C GQ Edition

The Fiat 500C may be a cool car, but it’s never exactly exuded machismo – dare we say some may even consider it a “chick car?” Now, it looks like Fiat is trying to change this city car’s image with the introduction of the 2014 Fiat 500C GQ Edition, a limited-production model geared toward male buyers.

Fiat has partnered with Condé Nast to develop this new cabrio version, which comes with “custom appointments that reflect an individual who always looks sharp, lives smart and finds freedom through the precision and turbocharged power of a driver’s car.” On the outside, these appointments include black 16-inch five-spoke wheels with red center caps, an athletic-looking front fascia with larger air intakes, and black headlamps. Inside, the GQ Edition includes GQ badging, specially designed sport seats, satin chrome accents, and Tungsten accent stitching. Underhood, the 500C GQ boasts a 1.4-liter, 160-horsepower MultiAir Turbo engine and five-speed manual transmission.

For more details, scroll down for the press release and a couple of videos. The Fiat 500C GQ Edition is scheduled to arrive in showrooms early next year, and we’ll be interested to see if it captures male buyers. But for now, we’re wondering what our readers think – has Fiat succeeded in catching your interest with the 500C GQ?

Porsche 918 Spyder pre-production version in all its almost-done glory

Wednesday, August 28th, 2013

Filed under: , , , ,

Porsche 918 Spyder

Porsche continues the long tease of its upcoming 918 Spyder; the latest instantiation here at the Pebble Beach Concours with the car presented in pre-production form to the throngs on the golf course.

Just a few days ago Porsche dropped an image of the car on its official Twitter feed. True to that leak, this 918 looks damn near what we expect the full customer version to be when it is officially debuted in Frankfurt. The neon-green brake calipers are items new to this version of the 918, and seem to be an identical color to those found on the Panamera S E-Hybrid.

When it shows up as a drivable piece, expect the Porsche supercar, with its gasoline-electric drivetrain, to be pretty insane. Horsepower in excess of 800 ponies will be available with a toe-tap, while the price of entry is expected to come within shouting distance of $850,000. A good deal for Porsche to bring the thing to Pebble then, where buyers with that kind of cash are think on the ground (and most likely wearing sherbet-colored trousers).

We’ve got image galleries of both our new live images from here at Pebble, and the latest official photos of this late-stage Porsche prototype, browse with confidence.
