Fiat is launching a special edition 500 convertible to mark the 60th anniversary of the iconic global best-seller. This special edition comes with a grey fabric roof and Dolcevita bi-colour paintwork, combining tri-coat white for the body of the car and pastel ivory for the bonnet and pillars. Chrome mirror covers and special 16-inch alloy wheels, with white diamond finish, complete the look and pay homage to the styling cues of the original Fiat 500.

The Fiat 500-60th will be badged with vintage Fiat logos and a bespoke 500-60th icon, with the red '6' and '0' incorporated into the last two figures of the 500 logo. Inside, a bordeaux vinyl dashboard and vintage Fiat logo clad steering wheel complement the retro-inspired ivory leather seats, with contrasting bordeaux piping, ivory leather gear knob, bespoke floor mats and 500-60th kickplates.

The 500-60th is available with a choice of three petrol engines - a 69bhp 1.2-litre engine and a 0.9-litre TwinAir with 85bhp, both available with a manual or Dualogic gearbox, and the 0.9-litre TwinAir with 105bhp. Having set trends worldwide in lifestyle, fashion and art, more than six million Fiat 500s have been sold globally in the past six decades. Just 250 units of this model will make their way to the U.K., and the first 60 units built will be completed with an individually numbered limited edition plate and certificate of authenticity.
