Fiat 500e Stormtrooper by Garage Italia Customs

One-off commissioned by FCA to mark the launch of "Star Wars: The Force Awakens."

Nov 19, 2015

We look at Garage Italia Customs (GIC) Fiat 500e Stormtrooper, on display this week at the 2015 Los Angeles Auto Show, and we see our world’s colliding – our love for cars smashing headlong into our love for the Star Wars franchise. Ok, so the custom electric subcompact is not as cool as GIC building, for example, a real life AT-AT walker, or TIE fighter, but our inner sci-fi geek won’t let us hate on the two-tone machine because it’s Star Wars!

Fiat’s parent company FCA tapped GIC to build the 500e to help promote the seventh film in the series, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which hits theaters in the US on December 18 (as if it needs help). The two-colored livery is inspired by the armor of the First Order Legion, with the windshield and side windows wrapped in a tinted film to bring out the visor and helmet of a First Order stormtrooper. Customized badges with the First Order insignia have replaced the Fiat emblems; the same logo is also found on the wheel rims painted in black to match the Pirelli limited edition white sidewall tires.

GIC chose to match a particular type of perforated black leather for the seats and their backing with a unique kind of white leather that covers the seat sides. The final result is further embellished with Alcantara® piping and a central panel in black leather with contrasting stitching. The headrests feature hand-embroidered First Order insignias, while the steering wheel has been upholstered in two-colored leather. Further mods include a dash painted white, plastic bits varnished in black and white with a special lacquered effect, and the headliner and pillars covered in white Alcantara®.

Is the 500e Stormtrooper gaudy? Oh, hell yes. But it’s still super cool, and we’d totally roll around in it. At least for a day.
