Fiat 500 60th anniversary edition | The Car Expert

A special edition of the Fiat 500 convertible has been launched to celebrate the original model’s 60th anniversary. Over six million 500s have been sold worldwide since 1957.

Only 250 of the limited-edition convertible will be available in the UK. The first 60 will be individually numbered with a limited edition plate and certificate of authenticity.

The special edition 500 will feature a grey-fabric roof and a two-tone white and ivory paint finish. Chrome mirror covers and 16-inch alloy wheels with a white diamond finish complete the look.

The 500 is badged with vintage Fiat logos and a bespoke icon which incorporates a red ’60’ into the last two figures of the ‘500’ logo to create a ‘500-60th’ logo.

Inside, the same logo appears on the kick plates, while the steering wheel has a vintage Fiat logo. The bordeaux vinyl dashboard is complemented by bordeaux piping on the ivory leather seats. Ivory leather is also used for the gear knob and the 500 has bespoke floor mats.

The special edition Fiat 500 includes a multi-function steering wheel and seven-inch Uconnect touchscreen infotainment system as standard. It also has Bluetooth, satellite navigation, USB and auxiliary ports.

An ivory and burgundy colour scheme is used inside the cabin.

As standard, the Fiat 500 60th anniversary edition comes with rain and dusk sensors, cruise control, automatic climate control, fog lights and rear parking sensors. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto allow access to smartphone applications via the touchscreen.

The 60th anniversary special is available with the same three petrol engines found in regular Fiat 500 models. The 1.3-litre diesel engine is not offered.

Pricing starts from £19,240 for the 1.2-litre 69hp model with a manual gearbox.

The special edition Fiat 500 60th anniversary is now available to order and customers can expect to take delivery from July.
