Fiat 500 1957 Edition in LA

Fiat is celebrating the 57th anniversary of the original 1957 Nuova Cinquecento with the new 2014 Fiat 500 1957 Edition. The new model is a combination between iconic Italian design and exciting driving dynamics and vintage styling elements. The carmaker will build it as a limited edition and so, the ones attracted by rare vehicles should pay attention.

According to different Fiat officials, the new Cinquecento was developed for the ones looking for its past spirit. The 1957 Edition has all that and more. It was equipped with several unique styling elements, material finishes and, as expected, to transfer the output to the road, the engineers have offered a manual transmission and a sport-tuned suspension. It has as base the 2014 Fiat 500 Lounge model, but it is more exquisite thanks to the classic exterior colors including Bianco, Verde Chiaro or even the exclusive Celeste paired with a signature Bianco painted roof and mirror caps. To transfer the output to the road the specialists have offered 16-inch retro wheel design elements that come with a wide chromed lip, body-color accent and large center cap with the FIAT emblem.

For improved handling, a sport-tuned suspension and all-season performance tires come as standard. The model will also have the FIAT badges on the front fascia and rear lift-gate. Moving on to the inside of the model, you will see an Avorio interior environment that will come in contrast with premium Marrone leather seats. Under the hood, the model comes with a 1.4-liter MultiAir engine and C514 5-speed manual transmission capable of delivering 31 mpg in the city and 40 mpg on the highway fuel consumption. As optional, there is a 6-speed automatic transmission with driver-selectable gear changes. Details on the price will be announced at a later date.
