12 Fiat 500

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Auction News -

PRICE RANGE £1000-7000

Small in stature but mas­sive in per­son­al­ity, the 500 makes a great al­ter­na­tive to a Mini but is sad­dled with an air of metropoli­tan chic that slightly works against it. Hip­ster own­ers aside, the 500’s plus points far out­strip the de­mer­its. Per­for­mance is rea­son­able enough, es­pe­cially around town, and its compact size means it’ll al­most al­ways slip into a park­ing space. Plenty of re­cent Ital­ian im­ports mean that find­ing a good ex­am­ple isn’t the hard slog it once was. Spares aren’t too much of a prob­lem and spe­cial­ists can keep them sound­ing as sweet as any of Vi­valdi’s vi­olin com­po­si­tions.
