To celebrate 30 years of production and 500,000 sales, Fiat has created a new special edition Panda 4×4, the Antarctica.

Available only in white with a black roof, the Panda 4×4 Antarctica features diamond-finish 15-inch alloy wheels plus special graphics and badging.

Interior goodies include grey and orange upholstery, height adjustment for the driver’s seat, a split-folding rear seat, and rear privacy glass.

Power comes from a choice of either Fiat’s 0.9-litre 85hp TwinAir petrol engine or a 75hp 1.3-litre MultiJet II turbodiesel.

Only 300 examples will be built, with order books open now.

Prices start at £14,895 and first deliveries are expected in March 2014.
