Garage Italia Customs
The Alpina Gstaad is delighted to receive from the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation, a custom-made electric Fiat 500, whose arctic paint exterior changes according to heat levels, demonstrating the effects of rising temperatures worldwide. It joins the hotel’s collection of electric cars which guests can use to explore the region, leaving zero carbon footprint.
The “Arctic” car was conceived by Garage Italia Customs to highlight the problem of global warming. Garage Italia Customs used a special film finish to create the polar animals, then treated the bodywork with thermochromic varnish so that when the external temperature rises, the polar animals gradually disappear, reappearing only when the temperature drops. The films are 3M green certificate and were printed with ecological latex. The interior of the vehicles were conceived using the same criteria of highlighting a respect of nature and uses entirely eco-sustainable materials that are natural and vegan.
