Since its inception in 1957, over six million units of the Fiat 500 have been sold and more than two million in the last ten years. The Fiat 500 recently joined the permanent collection of MoMA, the Museum of Modern Art, in New York, testament both to this iconic car’s status as a work of art, and a fitting celebration of its 60th birthday.
Fiat Australia has released the Fiat 500C Spiaggina ’58 Edition, paying homage to the 500 Jolly Spiaggina, the first special edition series of the Fiat 500 and embodiment of “La Dolce Vita”.
Limited to just 30 units locally and 1,958 worldwide, the Fiat 500C ’58 Spiaggina blends a unique Volare Blue exterior paint with a beige soft top convertible combination with the timeless design of the iconic cinquecento.
The Fiat 500C ’58 Spiaggina Edition is available in both manual and dualogic transmission and comes with $3,000 of additional design elements extending from the Lounge specification including:
- Volare blue paint finish and matching dashboard insert
- 16” vintage design alloy wheels
- White beauty line
- Chrome bonnet line, mirror covers and bumper inserts
- Rear Spiaggina ’58 badge and beige soft top
- Striped seat inserts with ivory highlights
- 500 logo and piping on seats
- Branded front and rear floor mats
“We’re excited to celebrate the history of Fiat’s very first special edition series with the arrival of the Fiat 500C Spiaggina ’58 Edition, combining an eccentric Volare blue exterior with vintage design elements to really turn heads,” said Fulvio Antonelli, Head of Fiat Brand Australia.
The Fiat 500C Spiaggina ’58 will feature a standard 7” Uconnect touchscreen system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, including Bluetooth, USB and AUX IN ports, rear parking sensors and automatic climate control.
The Fiat 500C Spiaggina ’58 Edition went on sale February 12 from $25,990 MSRP for the manual and $27,490 MSRP for the automatic through Fiat dealerships across Australia.
