The style is a tribute to the original icon but what about the Trepiuno concept inspired New 500 is 500?
It once referred to a 500cc engine but the new one runs massive (in comparison) 1200 – 1400cc engines. Perhaps Bambino would have been better name?
While it’s not a “500” I don’t care. The styling is brilliant both inside and out. Lets hope it’s a fun drive and the build quality is up to scratch. Can’t wait for it, especially the upcoming Abarth version, to get to New Zealand!

The new Fiat 500 will make its debut exactly 50 years after the original car was
launched in July, before arriving in Australia at the Sydney Motor Show in October prior to its
New Zealand and Australian launches in early 2008.
