To put all those superlatives into numbers: the current Fiat 500 has sold over 3.2 million units worldwide since 2007, the vast majority of them in Europe. Together with Panda, the small models of the Italian brand are at the top of the sales of city cars.

The Pětistovka continues, but it has been retooled for the new era with a purely electric drive. In addition to it, Fiat still sells the “old” version for some time, but its life cycle is inevitably coming to an end. And Fiat prepared a truly pleasant farewell for customers. The limited edition Collezione 1957 (the year of introduction of the first generation) will be produced in only 1,957 pieces and, in addition to its investment potential, scores with refined equipment.

The body is characterized by a specific two-tone design complemented by a beige canvas roof. The car wears sixteen-inch light alloy wheels and does not skimp on chrome details that refer to the original model from the turn of the fifties.

The small style will also allow you to drive with the sky above your head.

In the cabin we find white Frau leather upholstery and embossed One of 1957 logos as well as a wood-paneled instrument panel and a special numbered plaque on the center tunnel. The equipment includes LED daytime running lights, fog lights and a seven-inch TFT display.

The specialty comes with a single engine – a mild-hybrid liter three-cylinder engine with a capacity of 70 horsepower, which is connected to a manual transmission. Although it only has YES in the 0-100 km/h column (just kidding, it’s actually a long 14 seconds), it’s still plenty enough for normal city cruising.

Although the 500 has been around for a year now (and the introduction of the electric version is rather gradual), it is still extremely successful in Europe. In 2023, Fiat sold 109 thousand units throughout Europe, which means a twenty percent share in the given segment. It is the most requested car of its class in Germany, Spain, Austria, but also Belgium and Portugal.

How do you like the Fiat 500 Collezione 1957?

Splendor! Just having the money…

As a save maybe, but otherwise I don’t really care.
