Pricing for the Fiat 500 1957 Edition has been announced, with the retro-inspired compact going on sale at $21,200 including destination.
The Fiat 500 1957 Edition originally made its debut at the 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show, sporting an exclusive Celete (celestial blue) paint scheme contrasted with Bianco painted roof and mirror caps. The special edition model will also be offered in Verde Chiaro (light green) and plain Bianco (white). Making the model unique is the sport-tuned suspension, 16-inch forged aluminum wheels with a retro body color design and throwback Fiat badging. Interior color choices for the Fiat 500 1957 Edition are Marrone (brown) and Avorio (ivory).
The model is based on the Fiat 500 Lounge trim and is powered by a 1.4-liter MultiAir that achieves 31 mpg in the city and 40 mpg on the highway while mated to a five-speed manual transmission.
“Combining iconic Italian design and vintage styling with modern European technology, the 2014 Fiat 500 1957 Edition is inspired by the spirit of the original 1957 Nuova 500 and offers customers the opportunity to own and drive a vehicle that celebrates Italian automotive history,” said Jason Stoicevich, Head of FIAT Brand for North America, Chrysler Group LLC.
The Fiat 500 1957 Edition will be arriving Fiat studios nationwide in late spring.
