Description

Replacement for FIAT’s much-loved 500 ‘Topolino’, the Nuova 500 debuted in 1957. A radical departure from its predecessor’s essentially pre-war design, FIAT’s new baby featured unitary construction, a full-length opening fabric roof and all-independent suspension while carrying its engine at the rear. The 479cc power unit was an air-cooled overhead-valve twin, the first such used by FIAT, and the gearbox a four-speeder. The basic 500’s austerity was not well received, prompting the introduction of a revised and better equipped version endowed with refinements such as wind-down windows, upholstered rear seat, column-mounted switchgear stalks and hub caps for the wheels. Introduced in 1960, the 500D used the 499.5cc engine of the 500 Sport in de-tuned form, but nevertheless brought with it a small gain in horsepower.

This is a rare 500 D Transformable, meaning that it has a folding top and the roof can be retracted fully, turning it into an elegant cabriolet. This is an original Fiat 500 which is rare.  This particular 500 D Trasformable is also equipped with its hard-top –  very  rare to find. A fantastic opportunity to enjoy open top motoring at a realistic price in a  stylish “ town car” befitting to even today’s standards and designs.

Dies ist ein seltener 500 D Transformable, mit Faltdach welches komplett zurückgezogen werden kann, um es in ein elegantes Cabriolet zu verwandeln. Es ist ein original Fiat 500, der sehr selten ist. Dieses besondere Auto ist ebenfalls mit einem Verdeck ausgerüstet – sehr selten zu finden. Eine fantastische Gelegenheit um offene Fahrten zu genießen in einem stylischen Stadtwagen zu modernen Standards und Design, zu einem realistischen Preis.
