Confirming what earlier spy shots had already revealed, the first official images of the new Fiat 500C convertible have been leaked onto the web.
As expected, the 500C is not your typical convertible, instead using a sliding canvas roof which is opened electronically and stored in plain sight.
This design is both cost effective and functional, allowing the 500C to maintain its distinctive retro styling which has made it such a hit here and especially overseas.
The cloth roof is reportedly available in three distinct colours – ivory, red and black – and includes an integrated spoiler which also houses a third brake light.
The current engine range will be incorporated into the new 500C line-up along with the 1.3-litre Multijet equipped with Stop-Start technology.
The new Fiat 500C Convertible will make its first public debut at the Geneva motor show with European sales expected to start later this year.
