Cobra Fiat 500

The new Fiat 500 received a special treatment from Cobra Technology & Lifestyle. The face of the model is refined with two high-gloss stainless-steel components. The production plastic grille in the front bumper is replaced by a custom-tailored high-gloss Cobra Technology & Lifestyle stainless-steel grate. The rear apron can be refined with the rear guard offered by the tuner that follows the lower contours of the rear bumper. The sport springs are specifically calibrated for use in combination with these sporty low-profile tires. The height of the ride was lowered by 30 mm. The specialists have also developed a sport exhaust system for the Fiat 500. The accessories created for the new 500 have a two-year warranty with unlimited kilometers.

Stainless steel that sparkles like chrome, custom-tailored light-alloy wheels with the corresponding ride-height lowering and a sonorous exhaust note: Cobra Technology & Lifestyle now also adds some pizzazz to the new Fiat 500. Cobra Technology & Lifestyle gives the modern incarnation of this most classic of Italian cars a truly sparkling appearance: The face of the Cinquecento (Italian for 500) is refined with two high-gloss stainless-steel components.


The patented Cobra CITYGUARD® front guard is made from high-gloss stainless-steel tubes with a diameter of 42 millimeters. It bolts to the underside of the production front apron. For the development of this TÜV-tested accessory Cobra Technology & Lifestyle drew upon decades of experience in producing off-road accessories and transferred that experience to the passenger car.

The rear apron can be refined with the Cobra Technology & Lifestyle rear guard that follows the lower contours of the rear bumper. The striking stainless-steel tubular guard has a diameter of 42 millimeters and offers the added benefit of protecting the rear from minor parking damage.

The sporty yet elegant Cobra CN10 7Jx17 multi-spoke wheels fill out the wheel arches of the subcompact perfectly. Tires in size 205/35 R 17 front and back are the perfect choice.

Just as unique are the two large oval tailpipes measuring 140 x 60 millimeters.

Like all Cobra Technology & Lifestyle components the accessories for the small Italian car are manufactured in OEM quality and are backed by a two-year warranty with unlimited kilometers.
