60 years after the introduction of the exclusive Fiat 500 Jolly, known as the “Spiaggina”, the car is making its return in the form of the new Fiat 500 “Spiaggina ’58” special series.

It will be a limited edition with only 1,958 cars available, all of which will be in the 500C convertible model. The Spiaggina ’58 pays tribute to both the year 1958 as well as the 60th anniversary of the first special series of the Fiat 500. The new Spiaggina sports vintage-style Fiat badges and wheel designs, a white belt line and a new colour exclusive to this moded called Volare Blue. Inside there’s a two-tone colour scheme using the same shade of blue, and more vintage Fiat branding.

Fiat has produced a video starring the new Fiat 500 Spiaggina ’58 to the notes of the song “Volare”, the Italian classic which also appeared for the first time in 1958.

Spiaggina by Garage Italia concept

   

Furthermore, Garage Italia and design firm Pininfarina have marked the anniversary by producing a “Spiaggina by Garage Italia” show car, based on a Fiat 500C. Lapo Elkann, chairman and creative director of Garage Italia – as well as being the grandson of legendary former Fiat boss Gianni Agnelli – said: “I fell in love with the car when I was a boy, and as I grew up I was determined to bring it back to life.

“I am so happy about the model’s relaunch, and hope it will convey the dreams and the magical years of the post-war economic boom and the Italian way of enjoying life.”
