In celebrating the launch of Fiat’s 500 in America, Fiat has decided to release a special Nation Edition 500. The 500 Nation will be introduced at the upcoming Bologna Motor Show.

This special edition Fiat 500 is very patriotic, sporting a Stars & Stripes graphics package with 16-inch wheels. It will also come in an exclusive America Blue exterior shade (in hatchback form) while the convertible packs a tri-coat white.

Fiat plans to launch the Nation Edition in February with production limited to 500 units each and pricing set at $19,570 for the hatchback and $24,290 for the convertible based on today’s conversion rates.

    the way I understand it, the pimrary problem with the last Fiats we got was rust. Which really, i mean, what from the 1970 s DIDN'T have rust problems? I'd say a 128 or a 124 Spider wasn't any more of a rust monster than the Porsche 911 or BMW 2002/320i of the time, both of which are total rust heaps. Galvanized steel started becoming standard in the industry later.The cars themselves were fairly reliable and easy to work on, although the Fiat twin-cam got a reputation for unreliability because it was worked on past warranty by domestic independent mechanics who didn't know what they were doing. That's just my $0.02.
