And guess what it’s called? Yup, the ‘1957 Edition’. But given that Fiat has pretty well defined the retro market with its much-loved modern 500, we think they should be allowed to celebrate every single year, if that’s what they feel like.
The Fiat 500 1957 Edition is a cosmetic enhancement only, with the 1.4-litre MultiAir engine and five-speed gearbox of the 2014 Lounge model, but a more retro look: namely, three classic exterior colours, ‘vintage’ FIAT badges and a Bianco roof. Oh, and 1957-era wheels, although their authenticity (and appeal) is being hotly debated right now in the Classic Driver office.
