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.

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?
