Football fans might find this news quite interesting considering its nature. A special edition Fiat 500X has been launched in London to celebrate the partnership between Fiat Chrysler Motor Village UK and Fulham Football Club.
As the name suggests, this particular 500X been given a new colour scheme that pays tribute to that of the Fulham football team. The extended wheelbase 500 gets distinctive styling details, exclusive black, white and red paint finish and unique ‘FFC’ badging, as well as other standard equipment.
Apart from that, and like its base model sibling, the Fulham edition 500X also comes with alloy wheels, front fog lights with cornering function, rear parking sensors, climate control, six airbags, cruise control and 5-inch touchscreen with navigation, Bluetooth, USB and aux-in socket.
As of now, only 15 examples of this vehicle will ever be created, which is designed exclusively for Fulham FC season ticket holders. A prize draw will also be conducted where one lucky winner will get to drive a new Fiat 500X Fulham FC Special Edition for two weeks and have the keys handed to them by the team’s players.
“This is another excellent example of how we are teaming up with Fulham FC and its supporters,” says Fabio di Prima, managing director, Motor Village UK. “Of course, if a non-season ticket holder would like to buy the Fulham FC Special Edition – or any other of our large range of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles cars – we would be delighted to sign them up!”
Motor Village UK is the official car partner to Fulham FC and offer enticing deals to club season ticket holders on new Fiat, Alfa Romeo, Jeep and Abarth cars. We shall have to wait and see if other automakers follow suit and team up with the leading clubs of the UK’s Premier League to introduce their own version of football team themed vehicles.
