Fiat 500: One day in Turin

Fiat 500 Tours Turin

In this video, the Fiat 500 celebrates its 60th Birthday with a tour of the city of Turin and historic Fiat sites. The Fiat 500 debuted in Turin on July 4th, 1957. That model, which is known as the Nuova 500, was sold from 1957 to 1975 and reached 4 million sales. The modern Fiat 500 was introduced on July 4th, 2007 and has racked up over 2 million sales in its first ten years.


The Fiat 500 birthday tour starts off at the Fiat's Mirafiori plant (est.1939), travels to the Fiat Corso Dante factory (est.1900) which now houses Fiat's Historical Center and Archives, then passes by Palazzo Reale and ends at Fiat's Lingotto plant for a party on the roof of the factory.

Turin is filled with beautiful architecture and is also the home of Fiat in Italy. The tour takes you around the city, with stops at Fiat's historic factories. Visited are the first Fiat factory at Corso Dante, the Mirafiori plant and of course, Lingotto, the Fiat factory with the test rack built into the roof - not bad for 1916.
