  • New spot, ‘Elegance,’ begins to air Thursday, November 17 on national broadcast and cable networks
  • Features all-new limited edition ‘2012 Fiat 500 by Gucci,’ arriving to FIAT Studios in Q1 2012

November 17, 2011 , Auburn Hills, Mich. – The FIAT brand is debuting its first commercial for the all-new 2012 Fiat 500 by Gucci featuring actress, entertainer, philanthropist and entrepreneur, Jennifer Lopez. Set to Lopez’s song “Until It Beats No More,” from her new album, “Love?”(Island Def Jam), the commercial will be shown on national and cable networks on Thursday, November 17th.

The commercial, titled “Elegance,” is voiced-over by Lopez and highlights the style, elegance and originality of Fiat 500 by Gucci limited edition, as Lopez drives through the streets of New York City. In true Gucci style, the commercial beautifully captures the elegance of the New York City skyline, while highlighting the precise and uniquely innovative Gucci details featured in the car.

“The 500 by Gucci is stylish and innovative; it’s effortless elegance for the urban driver. To bring this simple premise to life, FIAT has again turned to Jennifer Lopez, this time to help catapult the iconic vehicle into the fashion world. Lopez perfectly embodies the spirit of the Fiat 500 by Gucci, as she is living proof that effortless elegance can only be achieved through hard work.”

The new commercial not only highlights the engineering and performance of the 2012 Fiat 500 by Gucci but also truly captures the stylish functionality of the limited edition vehicle. From the foreshadowing flash of the Gucci insignia on the rear bumper, to the red/green/red Gucci web stripe across the power-retractable cloth top and the interlocking “GG” on the shift knob, the ad tells the story of the model’s elegance, originality and performance seamlessly.

“The collaboration between FIAT and Gucci bring together two of Italy’s most respected brands. Inspired by FIAT’s rich heritage and design and customized by Gucci Creative Director Frida Giannini, the vehicle makes the perfect modern travel statement,” Francois said.

A 60-second and a 30-second version of ‘Elegance,’ can be viewed above or at the FIAT brand Facebook page and on the FIAT brand YouTube channel. The commercial was created in partnership with Doner of Detroit.

The 2012 Fiat 500 by Gucci models will be available exclusively at FIAT Studios nationwide in Q1 2012. The model starts at $23,500 (excludes destination, taxes, title and registration fees). For more information, visit http://www.fiatusa.com/gucci.com.

In September, the FIAT brand announced its collaboration with Lopez, which included placement of the 2012 Fiat 500 Cabrio in Lopez’s new music video, “Papi,” a 30-second trailer of the video and the first ever Fiat commercial featuring Lopez, both of which aired on local and national broadcast networks.

About Jennifer Lopez

Actress, entertainer, film, TV and producer, fashion designer, entrepreneur and humanitarian Jennifer Lopez has been called one of the most powerful and celebrated celebrities in entertainment.

She has sold over 55 million records worldwide and starred in multiple box office No. 1 films, including “Monster-In-Law” and “The Wedding Planner.” In 2001, “The Wedding Planner” was the nation’s top-grossing film, while her album, “J.Lo,” was No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200 Chart. The two simultaneous No. 1 honors made Lopez the first woman in history to have a No. 1 movie and album in the same week.

About the FIAT Brand

The FIAT brand stands for discovery through passionate self-expression. It encourages people to be in charge of their lives, live confidently and celebrate the smallest of things with infectious excitement. That philosophy is embodied by the North American introduction of the iconic Fiat 500 or Cinquecento – a small car that lives big. Italian at heart and rooted in a rich heritage, the 500 is synonymous with modern simple design blending form, function and a pride of ownership that is genuine.

Reminiscent of the original Cinquecento, the 2012 Fiat 500 and Fiat 500c (Cabrio) build on the vehicle’s global popularity. Since its initial launch in 2007, more than 500,000 Fiat 500 vehicles have been sold in more than 80 countries around the world. The model’s unquestionable popularity is the result of the Fiat 500’s great ability to deliver unmatched personalization options with advanced solutions in terms of quality, engine and passenger comfort. In addition to success on the sales front, the Fiat 500 has earned more than 60 international awards, including being named the 2008 European Car of the Year, 2009 World Car Design of the Year and Best New Engine of 2010 (FIAT MultiAir® Turbo).

August 16, 2011 , Auburn Hills, Mich. – Set to debut during New York Fashion Week (Sept. 8 – 15) on Fashion’s Night Out (Sept. 8), the new Fiat 500 by Gucci limited-edition models represent the perfect combination of craftsmanship and style, and bring together two of Italy’s most respected brands. In the year that sees the 150th anniversary of the unification of Italy and Gucci’s 90th anniversary, these special editions of the Fiat 500 and 500 Cabrio have been customized by Gucci Creative Director Frida Giannini in partnership with Fiat’s Centro Stile.

“In the 50s, the Fiat 500 created a style revolution when it first hit the road. It quickly became the must-have car of its time. Travelling in style has also been at the heart of Gucci ever since Guccio Gucci founded his company as a producer of leather trunks, suitcases and handbags in 1921. So, when Lapo Elkann suggested the idea of this collaboration it struck me as a perfect opportunity to create a new modern travel statement in Gucci’s 90th anniversary year.”

-Frida Giannini
Creative Director, Gucci

Inspired by neo-classic black-and-white film, the new black-and-white Fiat 500 and 500c by Gucci models are finished in unique eye-catching glossy pearl-glass paint. These two distinct colors complement one another: black with detailing in shiny chrome paired with interiors that contrast sharp black and white for a contemporary and racy attitude. White with satin chrome detailing and ivory and black interiors for a softer, sophisticated look.

“With Gucci as our design partner, we’ve amplified the Italian style of our Fiat 500 with unique exterior and interior looks that will make the car truly unique on the road. This special edition adds dimension to the Fiat 500 portfolio and will appeal to North American customers who appreciate Italian style just as much as modern technology, value and fuel efficiency.”

The worldwide launch of the Fiat 500 by Gucci has been developed with the support of Lapo Elkann and his agency, Independent Ideas, and includes a fully integrated above- and below-the-line campaign. Commenting on the collaboration, Lapo Elkann said, “I am honored that I was able to connect Fiat and Gucci, especially in such an important anniversary year for Italy. Being Italian, it makes me proud to have contributed to this Fiat 500 by Gucci, which brings together the spirit of two brands that so perfectly symbolize our country’s savoir faire in the world. It has indeed been very gratifying to work again on the car I love most with Fiat’s Centro Stile and with Frida Giannini.”

The exclusive Fiat 500 by Gucci models feature several exclusive design elements that highlight the Fiat 500’s iconic silhouette. A signature Gucci green/red/green web stripe runs along the entire bodyside perimeter on the Fiat 500 by Gucci, or across the length of the power-retractable cloth top on the Fiat 500c by Gucci model. Chrome cursive “Gucci” signatures complete the door frames and hatchback, complementing the satin-chrome exterior accents, such as mirrors, door handles and hood spear, which are highlighted in signature diamond black or diamond white glossy pearl-glass paint. Adding to the vehicle’s sculpted fenders are uniquely designed, retro-inspired 15-inch aluminum wheels with interlocking “GG” hubcaps and brake pads, which have been lacquered in signature Gucci green.

The interior space of the Fiat 500 by Gucci is stylish, yet functional, down to every last detail: chic embroidery, exclusive materials, glossy and satin chromes, the velvety varnish on the “radioboard,” the two-toned seats in Frau leather with the Guccissima print. Premium leather accents are also found on the interior door panels and on the hand-stitched leather-wrapped steering wheel, finished in a two-tone ivory and white combination.

Additionally, the Fiat 500 by Gucci features premium amenities, including the all-new six-speed automatic transmission with driver-selectable gear changes, BLUE&ME™ hands-free communication technology with USB port, eco:Drive™ Application and iPod control capability, SIRIUS Satellite Radio, Bose® Energy Efficient Series audio system with six premium speakers and subwoofer, power sunroof, automatic climate control, seven standard air bags, security alarm, power windows, power door locks, power heated mirrors, speed control, fog lamps and reconfigurable Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC) with trip computer, miles-to-empty average fuel economy and tire-pressure monitoring display (TPM).
