To mark the 60th anniversary of the 500, Fiat has unveiled a special edition of the 500 Convertible. Just 250 examples will go on sale in the UK, with the first 60 individually numbered. The special car features Dolcevita duo-tone paintwork in tri-coat white for the body of the car and pastel ivory for the bonnet and pillars. This is combined with a grey fabric roof, chrome mirror covers and special 16-inch alloy wheels with a white-diamond finish. Vintage Fiat logos will be applied to the car, along with 500-60th emblems. On the inside of the car, there’s a bordeaux-coloured vinyl dashboard and period logos on the steering wheel, as well as retro ivory leather seats with the same Bordeaux piping. An ivory leather gear knob, floor mats and 500-60th kickplates complete the bespoke look to the cabin. Other standard equipment includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Bluetooth connectivity and a seven-inch touchscreen navigation system, as well as front fog lights, rear parking sensors, climate control, automatic headlights and windscreen wipers and cruise control. Available to order now, and due to go be delivered from 4th July, the cheapest sub-100g/km CO2 petrol edition is priced at £20,500 for the TwinAir 85, with the more powerful TwinAir 105 edition costing £21,000. A Dualogic transmission is available with the 85 engine for an additional £800. An entry-level 1.2- litre petrol engine is also available at £19,240, though the CO2 emissions are above the 100g/km barrier.
