Fiat has created the 500 Anniversario, a special edition of its iconic 500 model which turns 60 this year. Over two million Fiat 500s have been sold worldwide since the model’s introduction in 1957.
Available as either a hatchback or a convertible, the Anniversario is available in either Riviera Green or Sicilia Orange. The exterior gets chrome accents on the bonnet and door mirror caps, vintage Fiat logos, 16-inch vintage alloy wheels and an ‘Anniversario’ logo on the boot. 16-inch diamond-finish alloy wheels are available at no extra cost.
The vintage feel is continued inside, with the seats upholstered in horizontal striped fabric with contrasting piping matching the body colour. The body-coloured dashboard is joined by ‘Anniversario’ logo on the floormats.
There’s nothing vintage or dated about the Anniversario’s technology. Climate control, cruise control and rear parking sensors are all as standard. Customers can opt for the Tech Pack which adds a 7-inch instrument panel and Uconnect with HD Live radio, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Satellite navigation is available on request.
The Anniversario is available with a 1.2-litre 69hp petrol engine which, according to Fiat, is capable of producing a fuel economy of 60.1mpg.
The Fiat 500 Anniversario is due in showrooms in July but is available to order now, with UK pricing starting from £14,265.
