Fiat 500 at 60: the best (and worst) special editions
Exclusive 500 for Ferrari – July 2008
Number made: 60 for the UK
This is rare. Only 60 for the UK, all used by the Ferrari dealer network as courtesy cars. Fitted with a 99bhp 1.4, a rortier exhaust, sports pedals, red calipers, red-stitched wheel and dashboard plaque to signify the above.
Myriad Fiat 500 special editions have been launched since the current model went on sale in 2007. We’ve recalled the good, the bad and the ugly
The Fiat 500 plays the car as fashion accessory like no other.
Even the Mini, doubtless the partial inspiration for the 500’s impressive option palette, hasn’t offered quite the scope of these limited-edition 500s, their appeal widened through collaboration with a number of fashion houses and even Ferrari. Several have been produced to a specific limited quantity, others on sale for a demand-driven period.
The latest batch celebrates 60 years since the first Fiat 500 appeared. All make a distinctive car more distinctive still and have helped to keep sales of this now 10-year-old ‘new’ version of the car flying high.
Flick through our gallery above for all of the special editions of Fiat’s 500 since the current model’s birth in 2007.
