AUBURN HILLS, Michigan — The 2014 Fiat 500 1957 Edition, which honors the 57th anniversary of the original 1957 Nuova Cinquecento, will go on sale in the U.S. next spring.

Pricing will be announced closer to launch.

Details include classic exterior colors, including Bianco (white), along with a two-tone look. The two-tone combinations include Verde Chiaro, a light green, or Celeste, a celestial blue, paired with a white roof and mirror caps.

Special 16-inch retro wheels feature a wide chromed lip, body-color accent and a large center cap adorned by a classic Fiat emblem.

The car also features a standard sport-tuned suspension and all-season performance tires.

The cabin gets a vintage look with Marrone (brown) leather seats and ivory accent stitching. An Avioro (ivory) leather-wrapped steering wheel completes the look.

The Fiat 500 1957 Edition is powered by the 1.4-liter MultiAir four-cylinder engine and five-speed manual transmission. A six-speed automatic is optional.

The original Fiat Nuova 500 marked the rebirth of the Italian brand and its product lineup after World War II.

This new model was created "for Italian car and design fans who want an added sense of the historic Cinquecento's spirit," Chrysler said.

Edmunds says: For people who can't get enough of vintage stuff, this new Fiat 500 hits the right note.

    The old one looks so much better, the new one just looks cheesy and plastic.

  • It's a shame that in the one photo, going for the retro look, the dood is carrying a camera from the 1980s (Nikon FM2?) instead of a camera from the 1950s. An early Leica M3 would have been nice.

  • I love it, and I'm not a Fiat guy. They nailed the look with the colors and wheels, and that interior just looks great. Good job.

    Nothing against Fiat but does anyone actually drive one of these or know someone that actually spent their own $ to buy one? I know many were given away as prizes, etc...
