Description

Launched as the Nuova (new) 500 in July 1957, it was a cheap and practical town car.  Measuring only 2.97 metres long and originally powered by an appropriately sized 479cc, two-cylinder, air-cooled engine, the 500 redefined the term “city car” and is considered one of the first city cars.

The ‘L’ or Lusso (manufactured between 1968–1972), was the penultimate 499cc model. The main change for the L is a much-modernised interior, including a renewed dashboard which brought the Fiat 500 up to date. 

Greater comfort and style were provided in this new model for the new generation. The Lusso additionally had a sunroof, and extra refinements such as a “super bumper” as well as chrome strips for the window surrounds.

This original Fiat 500 Lusso was born in Turin in 1972 and is finished in Avorio Antico with a black contrasting interior, and has covered approximately 58,000 miles. The car benefits from an increased capacity 650cc engine and has had a new Record Monza Twin Pipe sports exhaust fitted, brackets and gasket, along with new plugs, points, condenser and also benefits from an uprated air filter. It is no surprise that this particular 500 was one of the stars of the Goodwood Revival last year and will offer the new owner no end of driving pleasure.
