Fiat unveiled two 500 design concepts at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show.

Based off of the 500 Turbo and Sport models, the Cattiva is a shiny little thing that comes in a glowing persimmon color that the Italian automaker is somehow calling copper. Inside, the Cattiva’s been fitted with Nero Chrome-finished leather sport seats and a Beats by Dr. Dre audio system.

Formed from what was once a 500 Abarth, the Tenebra is, according to Fiat, a Matte Grigio, which is a very dark matte gray. The Tenebra is a dark little cutie from head to toe. Its headlamps, parking lamp bezels, and taillights are all gloss black, while inside a matte-finish carbon-fiber inset stretches from one side of the instrument panel to the other. It too, as all Fiats do, gets its music from a Beats system.

Fiat says the two concepts will not be leaving the concept stage.
