In 1957 FIAT introduced the world to its small great car: the Fiat 500, the vehicle which would become an emblem of mass motorization and a true global ambassador of 'Made in Italy' production. To celebrate the passion and the worldwide love for the icon, FIAT is launching the new special limited-edition series "Collezione 1957" a collectors’ edition in only 1957 units. This limited-edition model is available for order starting today in selected European countries and Japan.
The Fiat 500 Collezione 1957 stands out with its exquisite cabrio design and exclusive features. The exterior of this limited-edition model features a two-tone White Gelato and Rugiada Green bodywork with Beige capote, accentuated by the new Silver Beauty Line and 16" White Diamond alloy wheels.
The chrome mirror caps, and 1957 serigraphy 3rd light pay homage to the car's heritage, bridging the gap from 1957 to 2024. The interior is equally captivating, featuring ivory-wrapped seats with Frau Leather inserts and a distinctive "ONE OF 1957" embossed logo, a wooden dashboard, and a dedicated numbered plate on the central tunnel.
