On paper and clay, at all times, adhesive tapes were used to demarcate character lines and body proportions. "More than the strength of the forms, it's a concept car that brings meaning to people's lives, inspired by the most diverse audiences with different lifestyles", says FCA's Exterior Design Leader for Latin America, Daniel Gerzson.
With the calculations defined and checked, everything is ready to start building the final model of the Fiat Fastback. With a metal and Styrofoam internal structure, the body was machined in resin, first by a milling machine, and then finished by hand. In total, the model has about 60 pieces, between the main body, headlights, grille, lanterns, wheels and everything else. Each wheel, for example, consists of 5 separate items. All the parts were built in conjunction with the body.
FCA's Interior Design Leader for Latin America, Rafael Peixoto, enjoys the creative freedom that concept cars allow. "We have the opportunity to experience and express ideas with greater freedom. Inside the Fiat Fastback, we pushed the envelope with the design attributes so as to create a light atmosphere, with sculpted volumes that envelop and are filled with details that remind us of our daily home products", he says.
