Yes, yes, it’s special edition Fiat 500, but it’s a good one this time. You have seen it at the Geneva Motor Show earlier this month, now the 2017 Fiat 500-60th Limited Edition has become available to order offering a stylish and retro-cool way to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the iconic city car.
Interestingly though, Fiat 500-60th is not limited to 60 units. In fact, they are sending 250 units to the UK alone, of which the first 60 will be individually numbered. Of course, this model being a celebratory special edition, it does come with some nice options, such as grey fabric roof and Dolcevita bi-colour paintwork featuring tri-coat white for the body of the car and pastel ivory for the bonnet and pillars, chrome mirror covers and special 16-inch alloy wheels with white diamond finish, and special badging and 500-60th icons with the red ‘6’ and ‘0’ incorporated into the last two figures of the 500 logo. Inside, you will find bordeaux vinyl dashboard and vintage Fiat logo clad steering wheel complement the retro inspired ivory leather seats, with contrasting bordeaux piping, ivory leather gear knob, bespoke floor mats and 500-60th kickplates.
As for the more mundane features, Fiat 500-60th gets a multi-function steering wheel, 7-inch HD Uconnect Radio Live touchscreen system with Bluetooth, satellite navigation and USB and AUX IN ports, rain and dusk sensors, cruise control, automatic climate control, fog lights and rear parking sensors, plus Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Available engines include 1.2-litre 69hp (£19,240) and the 0.9-litre TwinAir with 85hp (£20,500), both available with a manual or Dualogic gearbox, and the 0.9-litre TwinAir with 105hp (£21,000).
