Fiat has dressed its 500c cabriolet city car up in a leather ensemble to raise money for charity.

The carmaker says the one-off leather 500 will support the Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights Europe Foundation, which champions human rights as the name spells out.

The 500 was a donation from Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) to a gala event in Monte Carlo for the Kennedy Foundation, where it was auctioned off to raise funds.

Umbrian master craftsman Stefano Conticelli created the leather look, using Italian products (of course) including calfskin in what Fiat describes as a “honey gold” finish.

The leather is said to be hardy enough to withstand the elements, and adorns the wheel arches, rear light clusters, headlights and, says Fiat, chrome-plated “whiskers”.

The 500 is also equipped with a picnic basket at the rear, made from the same leather materials, and the whole car is said to be a nod to the yachts of the Riviera.

Aside from the unique leather look, the 500 was also the first of the updated 500 models to roll off Fiat’s production line.

Finished in Bossa Nova White, the charity car is a 500c Lounge underneath and is powered by Fiat’s 1.2 litre four-cylinder engine producing 51kW and 102Nm.
