2014 Fiat 500 "1957 Edition"
though we appreciate rides of the yesteryear like the 1957 "Nuova" Cinquecento, we can't imagine ourselves driving one around, simply because of one reason: safety standards, but there are also the performance issues to deal with, as well as the environment impact old cars could have.

though we appreciate rides of the yesteryear like the 1957 “Nuova” Cinquecento, we can’t imagine ourselves driving one around, simply because of one reason: safety standards, but there are also the performance issues to deal with, as well as the environment impact old cars could have. with the 2014 Fiat 500 “1957 Edition”, you will get to experience the storied past of the Fiat 500, but less the said concerns. the “1957 Edition” is basically a remake of the Italian automaker’s 1957 ride and features exterior and interior design elements that pays homage the historic Fiat “Nuova” 500. such elements include 16-inch 1957-era wheel design with body color accent, Bianco-painted roof, and vintage “FIAT” emblems.

the vintage look and feel continues into the cabin with premium brown leather interior, accented with ivory highlights that further accentuates the Italian elegance. also on the inside is grey dash with ivory fascia that extends to the beautiful ivory leather-wrapped steering wheel, hand-stitched with brown leather on the “inner ring” and of course, the obligatory retro “FIAT” badge. despite the retro-chic look, modern amenities, and in this case, a 276-watt FIAT premium audio system touting six-speaker and SiriusXM Radio are in place to further enhance your driving pleasure. based on the 2014 Fiat 500 Lounge model, the 1957 Edition is powered by a 1.4-liter MultiAir engine, mated to a five-speed manual gearbox and features a “Sport” mode which allows for a more aggressive throttle map. finally, a sport-tuned suspension and all-season performance tires wraps up the performance department.
