The Fiat 500l Vans is Inspired by the Company's Iconic Shoes

Good words to describe the Fiat 500L Vans concept include "tubular" and "radical." The Italian automaker let the California shoe company modify its four-door 500, although the 1.4-liter turbocharged engine remained untouched. The changes were strictly aesthetic, save for the four LED daytime running lights and two foglights added.

On the roof is Vans' signature checkerboard pattern, while the interior features a dashboard filled with the company's stickers. The seats are made out of canvas, just like the shoes, and feature palms black palm trees against a blue background. The pedals were also modified and feature Vans' waffle sole pattern. The Fiat 550L Vans model isn't likely to see a production run, so enjoy these photos while you wistfully wonder "what if."
