New Fiat 500 1957 Edition Pricing Announced!

2014 500 1957 Edition


Fiat USA has announced pricing of the latest special edition Fiat 500. Called the Fiat 500 1957 Edition, the limited production car celebrates the original Nuova Fiat 500 that debuted 57 years ago on July 4, 1957. Based on the top of the line Fiat 500 Lounge, the 500 1957 Edition adds exclusive trim and features that separate this model from others. The Fiat 500 1957 Edition starts off at $20,400* and is very well equipped with all the standard features that the 500 Lounge model is known for: leather seats, all power conveniences such as windows, door locks, climate control and a six-speaker, 276-watt FIAT premium audio system with SiriusXM Radio just to name a few.

Fiat 500 “1957 Edition" wheels

The Fiat 500 1957 Edition presents a modern interpretation of the iconic model produced between 1957 and 1975. To achieve that, three vintage looking colors - Bianco (white), Verde Chiaro (light green) and Celeste (celestial blue) were selected. The last two colors come with a Bianco painted roof and mirror caps for an authentic retro look. Special 16 inch forged aluminum wheels designed to resemble the steel wheels used on 1950 era Fiats standout. A sport tuned suspension makes the 1957 Edition a nimble handler, just like the original.

Fiat 500 “1957 Edition” interior

The classy looking interior is furnished in high quality Marrone (brown) and Avorio (ivory) leather and is lavished on the seats, shift knob and hand stitched steering wheel. Noteworthy are the unique grey door panels that have Avorio inserts with Marrone leather upholstered armrests. A stylized key fob with Marrone casing and Avorio-painted "1957" graphic is a nice touch. The interior and exterior are finished off with period correct Fiat badging.

2014 Fiat 500 "1957 Edition"



Fiat 500D 1968-72

The Nuova Fiat 500
In the mid-1950s, Italy was recovering from the devastation of World War II and the demand for low cost cars was expanding. Two seater micro cars/bubble cars were becoming popular. These typically would seat 1-3 people and were arguably closer to a motorcycle than a car. Dante Giacosa, Fiat's legendary chief engineer, was tasked with developing a new car that would have the economy of these micro cars, yet have the space for four passengers and offer the drivability and security of a real car. The result was the Nuova 500 and its introduction came at a time when there was a new sense of prosperity in Italy and throughout Europe. The affordable and cheerful Fiat 500 gave families something to aspire for as it offered a taste of La Dolce Vita and became something more than just a car. Nearly 3.9 million Fiat 500s were sold between 1957 and 1975, and it would be fair to say that each one holds a special place in the heart of its owner.
