Retro-inspired Fiat 500 1957 Edition announced for the L.A. Auto Show

Fiat has recently unveiled the 500 1957 Edition, ahead of its debut at the upcoming Los Angeles Auto Show to be held in coming week.

Heavily inspired from the original Cinquecento (also known as Nuova 500), the 1957 Edition is based on the 500 Lounge and features a retro exterior that is available in three classic colors: Bianco (white), Verde Chiaro (light green) and Celeste (celestial blue). Other highlights of the car include a Bianco roof, a sport-tuned suspension and exclusive 16-inch wheels wrapped in all-season performance tires.

Coming to the interiors, the cabin looks quite elegant with Marrone (brown) leather seats, metallic accents and a premium audio system. The car also comes equipped with a leather-wrapped steering wheel and a unique key fob with a Marrone casing and Avorio-painted “1957” graphic.

Under the hood, power would be provided by a 1.4-liter MultiAir engine that would generate an output of 101 hp (75 kW) and 98 lb-ft (132 Nm) of torque. It can be further connected to a five-speed manual transmission or an optional six-speed automatic gearbox.

The 2014 Fiat 500 1957 Edition will go on sale next spring and the pricing details are yet to be disclosed but we can expect the same to be announced closer to launch.
