Last week saw the two millionth Fiat 500 was made at the Tychy Plant in Poland. It is a Fiat 500C Collezione, sporting an exclusive two-tone white and grey Primavera livery and powered by a sparkling TwinAir Turbo 85 HP engine. It will be sold in Italy. The new special series celebrates the timeless style and design of 500, its famed iconic status and its ever-fashionable personality with new colour and material combinations and a cool and stylish spirit.
It comes packed with exciting standard equipment, such as 16-inch rims, chrome-plated accents, a grey/white/grey beauty line and the cursive "Collezione" badge on the tailgate.
The production of the two millionth car is a proud new milestone in a remarkable success story. The great little iconic Fiat is sold in over 100 countries worldwide. Over 80 percent of sales are outside Italy and for five years it has been the bestseller in Europe in its segment*, with a market share of 14.6% at the end of 2017.
Furthermore, in its eleventh year, nearly 60,000 units were sold in Europe during the first quarter of 2018 - an all-time record for the current 500. Again, during the first quarter of 2018, the 500 was the market leader in nine countries (UK, Spain, Belgium, Switzerland, Portugal, Austria, Hungary, Croatia and Slovenia) and was in the top three in seven others (Italy, Germany, France, Sweden, Slovakia, Romania and Bulgaria).
The 30 special editions launched over the past 11 years, counting both Fiat and Abarth, are one of the secrets of the uninterrupted success of the Fiat 500. Fiat 500 has always been a trendsetter that while remaining true to itself has been re-interpreted over time in an array of special editions created to explore unusual territories for a city-car, from fashion and luxury yachts to connectivity. The new Fiat 500 Collezione special edition, which nods to the fashion world, follows in the steps of the limited editions - the 500-60esimo and the Anniversario - released last year to celebrate its first 60 years.
Of course the Fiat 500 remains as popular as ever at Mangoletsi! See our latest offers here.
