Car manufacturers are often using the term “game changer” in 2017, however that term really only relates to a small handful of cars.
One of the vehicles that undoubtedly changed the motoring world was the iconic Fiat 500.
Bringing four-wheeled, covered, motoring to a whole new generation of car buyers in Italy and further afield (including Australia), the little Fiat is now celebrating its 60th anniversary.
To mark the milestone, Fiat has produced a special edition offering – the Fiat 500 Anniversario Edition.
Arriving in Australia in October, prospective buyers will need to be quick – just 60 cars will be available locally.
Featuring exclusive ‘1960’s style’ features and accents – including the exclusive colours; Riviera Green (seen above), Sicilia Orange (seen below), Fiat Australia boss, Fulvio Antonelli, says the special edition cars are a great tribute to the iconic model.
“The Fiat 500 Anniversario Edition offers a glimpse into the iconic heritage of the Fiat brand and pays tribute to the vehicle which launched 60 years ago,”
“The Anniversario is a modern Italian-made hatchback that represents a reworking of the vehicle’s unmistakable design signature.”
Fiat 500 Anniversario Special-Edition Key Enhancements:
- Exclusive paint colours - Riviera Green, Sicilia Orange
- Chrome accents on the bonnet and mirror caps
- Vintage Fiat logos
- 16” vintage style alloy rims
- “Anniversario” logo on tailgate
