1958 Fiat 500

Fiat 500 Grey.jpg

The Fiat 500 Nuova was unveiled in 1957 as a replacement to the outgoing 500 “Topolino”. It was designed by Fiat’s lead engineer, Dante Giacosa, who was also responsible for the industry standard front-wheel drive layout that was first seen in Fiat’s 128 in 1969. The Fiat 500 became immensely popular to a point where almost 4 million examples were made until the end of production in 1975.

Changes to the updated 500 include the location of the 479cc two-cylinder engine which was relocated to the rear and featured twin-hinged “suicide” doors. Another feature of the 500N includes the fabric roof which opens all the way to the rear, providing a similar open-top experience to that of a cabriolet.

Despite its low displacement engine, the 500N weighed in at a kerb weight of 500 kilograms. This combination resulted in decent fuel economy which was also a selling point among the rest of its unique features.
