Fiat 500 ‘1957 Edition’ Returns To The U.S. With $20,740 Starting Price

Remember the 2014-2016 Fiat 500 1957 Edition inspired by the original Nuova Cinquecento? Well, American buyers apparently liked it so much, they asked Fiat to bring it back.

The automaker was only too happy to oblige, announcing that the 1957 Edition is coming back in both hatchback and cabrio body styles.

Based on the Fiat 500 Lounge grade, the special edition version brings a vintage look courtesy of 16-inch retro-inspired wheels (available in White, Green or Blue), a retro fascia with bright inserts, and retro Fiat badging.

You can also recognize the 1957 Edition thanks to the Ivory door-trim panels, white mirror caps, two-tone paint with a white roof on hatchback models, and black soft top on cabrio models. Finally, the exterior colors are also pretty strong clues, as the 500 1957 Edition is only available in Celeste Blue (Retro Light Blue), Chiaro (Light Green) and Bianco Ice (White) paints.

The interior pays homage to the 1957 model with an Avorio (Ivory) environment in contrast with the Marrone (Brown) leather seats. The two colors are everywhere inside the cabin, including on the leather-wrapped steering wheel, seat stitching, door panels, and leather shift boot. Finally, the unique key fob adds to the retro theme.

The Fiat 500 1957 Edition features the standard 500’s 1.4-liter MultiAir Turbo engine rated at 135 hp and 150 lb-ft (203 Nm) of torque. Compared to the 2014-2016 model, the 1957 Edition now has 34 more horsepower. As before, customers can choose between a five-speed manual transmission and a six-speed auto.

The special edition package is coming to U.S. dealerships this fall priced at $995. Factor in the Lounge model’s starting MSRP of $19,745 and you can have the 1957 Edition from $20,740, excluding a $1,295 destination fee.

    Back by popular demand? Who were the two American buyers who asked for it to come back??
    Regardless how “interesting” this edition may seem, i have yet to see one on North American roads.
