Last year we took the FIAT® brand from coast to coast, stopping at some great events
along the way. From amazing car shows to rooftop parties, we brought the signature style and Italian flair of the FIAT 500
everywhere we went. Today we’re taking a look back at some of our favorite events from last year, and looking forward to what new adventures 2014 will bring!
First stop of the year was the FIAT FreakOut in Long Island, New York
. This yearly gathering attracts some of the most dedicated FIAT fans from around the globe. They fawned over vehicles ranging in age from the early 20th century to today’s incarnation of the 500. Two of our super fans, Ben and Kahlil, accompanied us to provide some exclusive fan POV coverage. Check out some of their favorite pics below:
In August, we traveled to the West Coast for the Concorso Italiano
car show. Situated in picturesque Monterey, California, this annual competition draws car owners and enthusiasts from all over the world. Nearly every Italian brand of car is represented here, and the FIAT presence does not disappoint. At this year's Concorso Italiano, FIAT brand President Jason Stoicevich debuted the FIAT 500 GQ Edition
and showed off the FIAT 500 Cattiva
. Below, check out some photos of the reveal and shots of the vintage FIAT vehicles on display.
November had us heading to the LA Auto Show for the debut of the FIAT 500 1957 Edition
. But before we got there, we had the opportunity to join our partners at GQ
magazine for a rooftop party
celebrating the 500 GQ Edition. The party was rocking and the GQ Edition looked good under the glow of those Hollywood lights. Learn more about this very special 500 and all it has to offer here
Our last stop of 2013 landed us in Miami, Florida, for the SCOPE Art show at Art Basel
. We saw some cutting-edge art and showed off the FIAT 500 L to all who attended the pavilion event. We were also on hand for the taping of VH1’s interview with our Band Prix winner, Privet Earth
, followed by the VH1 + SCOPE party featuring a live performance by pop-punk artists Tegan and Sara on the beach!
We were thrilled to visit all these places in 2013 to spread FIAT 500 style and power
to the masses. We're sure to have just as much fun in 2014, so bookmark FIAT Backstage to stay up to date on all of our travels in the upcoming year! Don't forget to follow us on Facebook
