Celebrating Fiat 500’s birthday, the iconic “Spiaggina” makes an elegant return to Europe’s most famous resorts. Its new lease of life comes courtesy of the Fiat brand, which presents the new 500 “Spiaggina ’58” special series, produced in a limited edition of 1,958 cars – a tribute to the year of the birth of the first “Spiaggina”, with ultra-chic design touches and a lavish standard outfit.
This is the first of Fiat’s two tributes to celebrate both the legendary little car’s birthday and the 60th anniversary of its first special series – the unforgettable 500 spiaggina dating from 1958, which became a universally acclaimed symbol of the “Dolce Vita”.
The Spiaggina by Garage Italia showcar achieved thanks to its typical summer colours, Volare Blue and Perla White distinguish the two-tone livery of the body with Garage blue finishes and matching interior upholstery. The roof, juts like the traditional ’60s Spiaggina, has been removed and the rear passenger space has been transformed into a generous compartment with a built-in “shower” to take all your beach essentials with you. This modification was possible thanks to the support of Pininfarina technicians, who assisted Garage Italia staff in the design of the structural reinforcement work, such as the rear roll-bar, to ensure the chassis was rigid enough.
