exactly What it is that makes the Fiat 500 to an outright work of art, we will not attempt to wise us on here. It required an explanation, there would be something fishy about it, as the Storm P. once said.

Therefore, we will suffice to say that the museum in New York, UNITED states, has chosen to exhibit the most popular Fiat 500 model, the 500F, which was produced from 1965 to 1972. It is three metres long, has a fabric roof, seating for four and 18 horsepower to do well with.

The well-known sequel called, therefore, legitimately Nuova 500 (New 500) and is a further development of the original concept.

That the sequel ended up running with the limelight due according to the medium Autoblog, that it landed at just the right time as a practical and economical achievable car to families in post-war Italy.

In the 18 years, the Nuova 500 rolled off the assembly line, Fiat is both sporty and practical derivatives, and since the concept has been revived twice: First with the Fiat Cinquecento in 1991 and again in 2007 with retromodellen the Fiat 500, which is still being built today.
