New Fiat 500 1957 Limited Edition Comes to the States Priced at $20,400*

Not to be confused with the similar, but ultimately, fancier and better looking Fiat 500 1957 Vintage Edition study that’s on display at this week’s Geneva motor show, the 2014 Fiat 500 1957 Edition was previewed at last year’s LA show and now, the Italians have announced pricing.

The limited run model with the 1950s vintage colors and trimming goes on sale this spring with prices (excluding delivery) starting from $20,400, “just $1,900 more than a base Fiat 500 Lounge” according to Fiat, or $4,205 more than the entry-level price for the 500, according to Fiat’s official website and…Carscoops.

Buyers have a choice of three classic exterior shades, including Bianco (white), Verde Chiaro (light green) and exclusive Celeste (celestial blue), with the last two paired with Bianco painted roof and mirror caps for a two-tone look.

All 1957 Editions come with a sportier-tuned suspension, 16-inch forged alloy wheels with a retro body color finish, old-school Fiat badges, and Marrone (brown) and Avorio (ivory) leather interior.

Power is provided by Fiat’s 1.4-liter MultiAir engine paired to a standard manual gearbox delivering an EPA estimated 31mpg city and 40 mpg highway, with a six-speed automatic transmission offered as an option.
