The Fiat Nuova 500, also known as FIAT 500 or even by its nick­name “Topolino”, is an econ­omy car pro­duced by Fiat from 1957 to 1975. Its de­sign demon­strates an im­por­tant piece of Ital­ian history. Its launch cor­re­sponds to the tran­si­tion of the Bel­paese from its post-war sac­ri­fices to the pros­per­ity of the eco­nomic boom of the Six­ties. The 500 is the Ital­ians fa­vorite travel com­pan­ion on its path into the fu­ture. The Fiat 500s mar­ket dis­tri­bu­tion is vast. For those who own it, it be­comes an in­te­gral part of the fam­ily. The flam­ing red body is an ode to life and rep­re­sents con­fi­dence for new prospects and op­por­tu­ni­ties. Even to­day, the leg­endary “Topolino” re­mains em­bed­ded not only just in the hearts of mo­tor­ing en­thu­si­asts.
