|We started two years ago, when together with Fiat and Ferrari have collaborated on the first 500 for Ferrari Dealer.
The car, 200 copies which are to be used as a courtesy car from European dealerships in the house of Maranello, was built on a 500 1.4 16v 100Hp for which had already planned a special preparation in terms of interiors, but who Magneti Marelli, As a supplier of original equipment of the platform 312 (Fiat 500
), won a little more verve in creating some specific details:
-steel exhaust with bicodino output
-system lowered suspension
-navigator with telemetry
From this experience, the program has taken shape, conretizzandosi in the first of 500 built by Magneti Marelli infant development, 500 Motorshow 2008. The car, still on a 500 1.4 comes with a two-tone livery (sage green and burgundy satin for the roof to the car body), with the interior in leather, Alcantara and carbon fiber technology with F1 and of course with the already developed to 500 for Ferrari dealers.
The flash of the fans helped to warm the atmosphere of those very cold winter days in Bologna.
