Chrome plating has been used to further enhance the visual link between the two; with the mirror caps, door handles and bonnet trim all getting a mirror-finish.
The interior has also been changed to fit the Riva theme, with Sera blue featuring again on the sides of the ivory leather seats and on the edges of the ivory coloured seatbelts.
The most notable change to the interior is the introduction of premium quality wood as used by Riva. Mahogany and Maple have been used to carve a new dashboard, while the gear knob has been carved out of solid Mahogany. Riva has made sure to stamp its name on this special edition of the 500, with a logo on the bonnet badges inside and out.
The final unique option – only available to the initial 500 customers of the main European markets – is a numbered badge just behind the handbrake, which can be personalised at the customer’s request.
So if you don’t have the hundreds of thousands needed to buy a Riva Aquarama, a boat that Jeremy Clarkson once described as, “man’s most beautiful creation” – this Fiat is the perfect solution.
