Garage Italia Customs created the Fiat 500e Stormtrooper for the Los Angeles Auto Show and is following up on that automotive hit with an eye-catching restyling package tied into Hollywood’s giant launch of the seventh episode of the Star Wars movie series.
To play off the arrival of “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” Fiat Chrysler Automobiles has launched its own promotion for premieres in Spain, Germany, Sweden, Denmark, UK and Turkey with 12 cars identical to the 500e Stormtrooper. Two of the models that will be presented are dedicated to the drones starring in the lm, R2-D2 e BB-8, together with a tailor-made 500 Stormtrooper in a world preview for the showing in Switzerland.
Garage Italia Customs is Lapo Elkann’s creative hub and specializes in complete tailor-made customization. The compamy has produced 12 wrapping kits to replicate the varnished livery of the original concept in every detail. The kits were sent to the relative specialists in the six countries involved in the initiative. Their packaging was personalized and delivered with a precise set of instructions with detailed graphics. These elements once again highlight the GIC’s desire for perfection and care for detail in every area.
As an example of the special customization for each country, the Swiss car will feature a “damage effect” exterior treatment to replicate the scars of time and galactic battles.
GIC says that the “special effects” created for each car allowed designers to “express their abilities at their best” by making a unique painting for the two models dedicated to Switzerland. The spectacular result was obtained with an innovative aerography technique and a nal 3D embossed opaque nishing which conveys strong sensations on touch.
