Fiat 500X Rendered as an Abarth Doesn't Look Bad at All

Read more

Check Out this Quattroporte… Fiat 500 Quattroporte Rendering

Since we now have a five-door variant of the all-new MINI, it’s justifiable to consider a similar variant based on its quasi-rival, the Fiat 500.

The little Fiat would definitely benefit from the addition of two extra doors plus wheelbase, and, for the first time since it was created, actually be any good at carrying more than two people and some shopping.

Yes, sure, Fiat already has the 500L, but that’s an MPV and thus could never really be as cool as the actual 500 that people have grown to know, but in slightly elongated form.

This rendered interpretation by AutoProjecoes, while slightly disproportionate-looking (probably due to the use of a photo that wasn’t shot dead on perpendicular), seems quite accurate and paints a picture of what a five-door 500 would look like if Fiat only made it longer than the three-door sans any other design changes.

It would not be at all out of place if Fiat made this exact car, a sportier variant of the already released 500L, the family-friendly child seat-bearer with a cute Italian face. The maker’s history is peppered with mundane cars that gained fame by dropping their Fiat badge and adopting an Abarth one, along with performance mods.

Fiat Reminisces of the Summer of 1957 with 500 Vintage Study

Read more

Just a few months after Fiat rolled out the limited-production "500 1957 Edition" at the 2013 LA Auto Show last November, the Italians are playing the vintage game again at the Geneva Motor Show with a special study paying tribute to the 500 designed by Dante Giacosa, which was presented in Turin on July 4, 1957.

Mopar Helps Fiat Add Some Surfer Kewlness to 500L Trekking

Read more

Let's be frank now; the 500L isn't one of Fiat's best styling efforts, looking more like a pregnant guppy fish than a cute five-door interpretation of the classic 500. The Trekking edition that gives the 500L a taller riding, soft-roader appearance, does help with the cosmetic aspect.

Zender's White-Hot Abarth 500 Corsa Stradale Concept

Read more

Thanks to Ferrari and other sports car makers from Italy, most automotive enthusiasts know what to expect when the words "Corsa" and "Stradale" are used to name a vehicle(for the record, "Corsa" is Italian for "Race" and "Stradale" for road), not that Zender's Abarth 500 Corsa Stradale needs to explain what it was made for…

Designer Reimagines Fiat 127 for the 21st Century as the 500's Big Brother

Read more

The Fiat 127 was a replacement for the pretty 850, and it was built between 1971 and 1983, when it was replaced by the Uno. It followed a simple design strategy of clean shapes and lines with good proportions. This is why if you see one on the street today, particularly in a nice color, you will notice it.

Now the 127 has been reimagined for the 21st century as a big brother to the successful 500, and could theoretically be built, as it has been designed to not only look as close as possible to the original model, but to also be built on the same platform that underpins the Fiat Punto and Alfa Romeo MiTo. It is the work of David Obendorfer, who also gave us this modern Renault 4.

It may not be a standalone brand yet, as reports have suggested, but the 500 family is nevertheless expanding rapidly with five-door minivan and crossover offsoots.

That’s not to say that Chrysler’s Italian partner has left the standard, three-door 500 alone: after introducing the 160HP 500C Abarth and the all-electric 500e at LA last November, today it unveiled two design concepts at the 2013 North American International Auto Show.

Lazzarini Design Looking for Someone to Invest $550,000 to Build a Ferrari-Powered Fiat 550 Italia

Read more

Apparently, Nissan's much-hyped decision to create the ultimate small crossover by blending the body of the Juke with the mechanical hardware of the GT-R has found an imitator of sorts in the guise of Lazzarini Design Studio.

The unknown Italian company would like to find an investor and car enthusiast willing to spend around $550,000 (~€440,000) to fund the development of a unique Fiat 500, one that is powered by the…Ferrari 458 Italia's running gear.

The proposed car is named Fiat 550 Italia, not only as a nod to its price, but also to the number of ponies produced by a slightly de-tuned version of the Ferrari's 4.5-liter V8, and we quote Lazzarini Design:

"The engine it was slightly detuned from 570HP to 550HP, this cause in the simulator the exeed of torque could badly balance the car during fast shifting operations."
