Fiat 500

The Fiat 500 is a car produced by the Fiat company of Italy between 1957 and 1975 .

Launched as the Nuova 500, it was marketed as a cheap and practical town car. Measuring only 2.97 m (9 ft 9 in) long, and originally powered by a tiny 479 cc two-cylinder, air-cooled engine, the 500 redefined the term "small car" and is considered one of the first city cars.



In 2007 Fiat launched a similar looking, retro-styled car, the Fiat Nuova 500.
