Click above for a high-res gallery of the Fiat 500C

Making a convertible out of a fixed-roof car inevitably takes its toll on structural rigidity, though every automaker under the sun has tried to come up with a solution. For the 500, Fiat has reached back into its history to the original 1957 Cinquocente and fitted the new one with a canvas roof folding back between solid roof rails. The resulting 500C lets the sunshine in – at least, some of it – while keeping the retro hatchback's profile, which promises a uniquely Italian answer to the cabrio equation. While we wait for the 500 to make the trip across the Atlantic, we dropped by Fiat's show stand here at the Geneva Motor Show to check out the drop-top and snapped a few photos for your viewing enjoyment. Check 'em out in the gallery below.

        If that's indeed what she's wearing, can she please demonstrate the "convertible" function as well?

        As I said, topless is always better.

        They could dress her in derelict clothes from Zoolander and I would still be down.

      I hope she is standard equipment.

      I like the 500 much more than it's platform mate...the Ford Ka.
