It’s been six decades since the original 500 walked the streets of Italy and now the automaker has decided to celebrate the milestone by introducing a limited edition model at the inbound Geneva Motor Show.
The new special series has been aptly named 500 Sessantesimo (Italian for sixtieth), and will feature a limited production run of 560 units – you know, the 500 in 60 years. All examples will naturally feature a commemorating plaque affixed to the center console by two X-shaped screws. In addition, the exterior features Dolcevita – it’s not a state of mind this time – but the two-tone paint. The combination features three-layer white for the lower half and pastel ivory for the upper part of the 500 60th Anniversary, with complimenting grey and burgundy waistrail. There are also 16-inch alloy wheels with a 560 logo and inside the cabin there are numerous special traits.
For example, the 500 Sessantesimo gains tubular elements for the ivory leather-wrapped seats, burgundy detailing on the central part of the dashboard, as well as perks such as a 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system, satellite navigation, automatic climate control, or Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, as well as 7.0-inch TFT digital instrument cluster. Fiat also revealed customers can order the new special edition with the 1.2 with 69 PS and 0.9 with 85 PS gasoline engines, as well as the 1.3-liter turbo diesel packing 95 PS.
