I have to admit it. I went to Italy and fell in love with the classic Fiat 500. We’ve started to see the redesigned modern version here in the United States but over in Rome, Florence and other Italian cities, seeing classic, vintage Fiat 500s in their native habit was a treat for the eyes.
Tiny little old Fiat 500s with appropriate scratches and small dents snuggled up against the curbs, squeezed in between Vespas motor scooters, delivery vans and crates full of eggplants and milk in front of an Italian restaurant with the smell of simmering tomato sauce and parked on top of ancient cobble stone streets was simply heaven.
I did this pop art version of the Fiat 500 above with bold colors and a black background in a square format.
I also have this bright purple version of a Fiat 500 parked on the street as well as this graphic design illustration for t-shirts, sweatshirts, throw pillows and more. You can even choose the background color.
The Fiat 500 (Italian: Cinquecento, Italian pronunciation: [ˌtʃiŋkweˈtʃɛnto]) is a rear-engine two-door, four passenger city car manufactured and marketed by Fiat Automobiles from 1957 to 1975 over a single generation in coupé and station wagon body styles.
Launched as the Nuova (new) 500 in July 1957, a cheap and practical town car. Measuring 2.97 metres (9 feet 9 inches) long, and originally powered by 479 cc two-cylinder, air-cooled engine, the 500 is considered one of the first city cars.
In 2007, the 50th anniversary of the Nuova 500’s launch, Fiat launched another new 500, stylistically inspired by the 1957 Nuova 500, featuring a front-mounted engine and front-wheel drive.
