As a focal part of its display during the 2017 Geneva Motor Show, Fiat will be showcasing its long history. Fiat will be officially unveiling the 60th anniversary edition of the 500. In addition, it will also be putting on display the limited Europa version of the 124 Spider having a retro-inspired design. Fiat will also be showing new styling packages that it knows will give other models that elegance.
The production of the 500 started back on July 4, 1957, which means this year it will be marking its 60th year. The special edition of this celebrated convertible will have two-tone paint in addition to the various classic touches. For the body itself, the upper portion is in Ivory with the lower part in three-layer white. There is also a pinstripe in burgundy and gray that enhances the visuals. The chrome trim on the exterior heightens this feel even further, same with the retro Fiat logos.
The old-school effect is evident on the exterior as well, with the seats in Ivory leather and the seams in burgundy. There is also a matching trim that can be seen on the dashboard. It is fitted with an impressive host of standard features such as the automatic climate control and the navigation system with the 7-inch display screen.
For the anniversary edition, Fiat revealed that only 560 units will be made with orders from the Europe market to be accepted starting on March 9.
Deliveries are expected to start by July 4. There will be three choices for the engine and these are the 1.2-liter engine that can offer 69 hp (51 kW), the TiwnAir 900 cc variant with an output of 85 hp (63 kW), and finally the turbocharged 1.3-liter diesel engine which can deliver 95 hp (71 kW).
Meanwhile, the second model to be displayed is the 124 Spider Europa, which is targeted at customers who want something athletic. It will come in the exclusive Passione Red and will be fitted with the 4-spoke 17-inch wheels. On the inside, the seats are covered in black leather with the rearview mirror bearing a silver cap. A numbered plaque can also be seen inside.
Another model expected to be part of the exhibit is the Fullback pickup which has a more attractive design courtesy of the new Cross version. The front section shows a grille that has a matte black trim with the skid having a satin-finish. Meanwhile in its bed, there is a bar which also has that textured black finish.
Fiat revealed as well that for the Tipo and the 500X, it will be offering the S-Design style packages. Under the packages, the 500X will be in the exclusive Alpi Green color with the Tipo in the exclusive Metropoli Grey. Their trim will be updated as well.
