Garage Italia Customs — a company which is renowned for its impeccable custom auto jobs, recreates the epitome of the nostalgic car with this project. Taking on the silhouette of the iconic 80s Fiat Panda, the garage playfully nods to Fiat head Gianni Agnelli.
Garage Italia Customs chose a nostalgic car that was Agnelli's "go-to [...] on winter trips to Switzerland." Given the contemporary consumer's expanding love for retro aesthetics and 80s activations, the Fiat Panda project is sure to raise interest and delight. For the tribute, Garage Italia Customs kept the auto's signature boxy profile. The company refurbished the interior of the vehicle, using "a selection of vintage fabrics from one of Agnelli's favorite textile producers — Vitale Barberis Canonico."
