Fiat 500 Italian Car Design

We found this car in the back of an alley in San Francisco. What a great little car! The Fiat 500 was designed by Dante Giacosa in 1956. Fiat launched it as the Nuova 500 in July 1957. The Fiat 500 was marketed as an economical and practical town car. The perfect car for the narrow streets of Italy. In 2007 Fiat launched an updated version of this car, the Fiat Nova 500. Fiat cars are not available in North America unfortunately.
