Italian company introduces Fiat 500-based JollyCar
An Italian firm named JollyCar has launched a contemporary interpretation of the Ghia-assembled Fiat 500 Jolly that was offered from 1957 to 1974.
Like its 20th century counterpart, the newest Jolly stands out in the pre-face-lift Fiat 500 on which it is centered thanks to greater door sills highlighted by wood trim as well as a chopped-off roof panel. A a skinny, tent-like sailcloth top could be installed when it rains, but the most suitable choice is definitely to abandon the Jolly in the garage. JollyCar hasn't shown what structural supports it's created to the 500. But, the inside boasts some custom designed wicker seats which can be fitted with canvas handles at an additional price. Mechanically, the JollyCar is typical 500 menu, meaning customers can purchase it with both a normally-aspirated 1.4-liter four-cylinder motor rated at 100 hp or a turbocharged variant of the four-banger that makes 135 ponies. Eur-spec cars may also be accessible with a 0.9-liter two cylinder and a 1.3-liter turbo-diesel, but so far there is no word on an Abarth-run hot-rodded version.
Offered as a limited edition version, the JollyCar is going to be sold in several global markets including America, Europe as well as some of nations in Asia. Astonishingly, in the US it decals for $89,000 before taxation, delivery and choices are considered, a sum that makes it about $72,000 more pricey than a foundation-version 500. To place that amount into perspective, a new Chevrolet Corvette Z06 coupe prices $79,995 and a foundation Porsche 911 begins at $84,300.Read Source
