Gucci's Creative Director Frida Giannini has turned her hand to a very different kind of design by working on a collaboration with the Centro Stile Fiat to create the 500C by Gucci - a monogrammed designer car.

Apparently 3000 pre-orders were placed for the £14,800 special edition car with its instantly recognisable green-red-green Gucci branding, logo printed leather and 'G' logo hubcaps. But don't worry if you can't splash out on a set of new wheels...you can still take a peek if you happen to be in London this weekend as the car is coming to Covent Garden from 16th - 19th October as part of a tour of Europe.

Apparently, "A striking 5-by-5 metre crystal cube with elegant shiny black lacquered bottom and top will be set up for each stage of the tour."

So no test drives then?
