In honor of one of the most famous Italian wines, Sassicaia, Aznom has created a special edition of the 500 Cabrio, featuring wood detailing for interior and exterior and with a special matte bicolor paint, called the 500 Sassicaia.

Bearing the name of the Tuscan wine which is produced at the San Guido estate, it immediately draws the attention for the particular shade of matte beige used for the bicolor paint of the body and the fabric of the capote. A closer inspection can't but notice the wood exterior details, material chosen for the side mirror covers, for the trunk handle and for the side mouldings, the last being branded with the Sassicaia logo. The selected wood is a clear reference to the oak barrels in which the renown Sassicaia wine matures.

Exteriors are further embellished by a series of details made of brushed brass casting like the bezel housing the official badge of the marquis Incisa della Rocchetta on the door pillars and the limited edition name tag showing the number assigned to the car on the tailgate.

Inside the 500 Sassicaia by Aznom there are the usual material refinements that aim to distinguish it as a product of the specialist Aznom brand. The company's factory, which is based at the Monza race track, chose a beige-and-dark-brown full-grain leather to cover the door panels, the steering wheel, the odometer cover and the seats, further embellished by the Jacquard beige fabric with a Sassicaia monogram and the similar badge embroidered on the seat backs. More wood is found in the interior, completely covers the dashboard, which is further enhanced by an embossed Sassicaia logo.

The makeover is completed by an Aznom designed handbag kit, called the Gran Tour Sassicaia collection, that includes the Bauletto and suitcase styled to fit the trunk of the 500C. The set, in the same Jacquard fabric as the interiors and wrought out of Tuscan leather, contributes to give a traditional and at the same time modern taste to the 500 Sassicaia branded 500C. The 500 Sassicaia by Aznom will be produced in limited edition on demand and equipped with Kumho tyres, which is a technical partner of Aznom.
