Richard Hardie Celebrates The Fiat 500 Turning 60 with the Fiat 500 Anniversario Limited Edition!

Posted on:

The Fiat 500 is an iconic model, easily recognised across the world. Described as the World’s first city car, there have been more than six million Fiat 500 models sold worldwide since it first rolled off the production line 60 years ago.

Fiat 500 History

The story of the Fiat 500 began in 1957, when the first model rolled out of the factory in Turin. It was known as the Cinquecento, or ‘the Peoples Car’ and as such sold four million models until production stopped in 1975. The model was hugely popular and was the perfect town car that was stylish, practical but also affordable too. The first generation model was fitted with a 479 CC two-cylinder, air-cooled engine and the car measured nine feet in length. Fast forward to 2007 and the Fiat 500 made its comeback. Its unique styling was again, a huge hit with motorists and in the last 10 years a further two million models have been built and sold worldwide. The current model comes in a great range of trim levels, giving owners many customising options to make it suited to them.
