On July 1st, Europe makes a new start: with the “Green Pass”, it will be possible to return to freedom of movement within the 27 countries of the European Union. Freedom, joie de vivre and escapism come with the long-awaited restart and the beginning of this year’s summer season. The desire to rediscover the pleasure of things big and small takes us back to the ambience of Dolce Vita that straddled the 1950s and ’60s, when Rome, Cortina d’Ampezzo, Portofino and Capri became the settings for the international jet set. Here in Italy, they found the right places for pure escapism, in the name of Italian style and taste.
“July 1st is a significant date with a considerable symbolic value. It gives the green light to the recovery, to the reopening of Europe, to the return to freedom of movement and travel, and in a way to that carefree attitude typical of summer,” stated Olivier Francois, Fiat Chief Executive Officer and Stellantis CMO. “These were the precise values that inspired the creation of the new 500X Yacht Club Capri, the first “open-air” 500X, as the feeling of the wind in your hair is synonymous with freedom and happiness. The new “open-air” body makes its debut with the “Yacht Club Capri” Special Series, a tribute to a location as evocative as the Yacht Club Capri, and with the 500X Dolcevita Launch Edition.”
Fiat 500X Yacht Club Capri
The 500X Yacht Club Capri adds a new body to the 500X line-up: on top of the Cross and Sport trims, the 500X now becomes “open-air” for the first time. In a few seconds and with a single push of a button, the electric soft top of the new Yacht Club Capri special series opens the 500X to the heavens.
The new special series with its livery dedicated to the “Yacht Club Capri” is available in “Blue Venezia” with blue “Dolcevita” soft-top, brushed chrome mirror caps and door handles, and the Yacht Club Capri logo to cement the partnership on the B-pillar and tailgate.
The line of beauty enhances the car's profile and sophistication. Also brand-new and exclusive are the 18” lightweight alloy wheels with Blue Venezia design cues.
The sailing-inspired elegance and the reference to the years of the Dolce Vita can also be seen in the interior: soft touch white seats with 500 blue embroidery and as optional, a dashboard and gear knob in dark mahogany.
500X Dolcevita Launch Edition
The 500X Dolcevita Launch Edition embodies the excitement and pleasure of “open-air” driving in a prestigious launch edition. The external livery comes in Gelato White, the electric "DolceVita" soft-top is blue and the 18” alloy wheels include blue design cues, while the prestige of the interior lies in its soft touch white seats.
