The Fiat 500 (the "cinquecento", /tʃin.kwe.tʃen.to/, or "chin-kwe-chen-to", from the Italian word for "500") is a car produced between 1957 and 1975.
The Fiat 500 K alone was produced until 1977. It was designed by Dante Giacosa.
Launched as the Nuova 500, it was marketed as a cheap and practical town car. Measuring only 2.97 m (9 ft 9 in) long, and originally powered by a tiny 479 cc two-cylinder, air-cooled engine, the 500 redefined the term "small car" and is considered one of the first city-cars.
Lombardi has made a few variations on the Fiat 500. The most well-known are the "My Car" and the cabriolet. But there are more. Do you recognize them all?

|Fiat 500 Cabriolet||There is only Fiat 500 My Car Cabriolet built.|
|Fiat 500 Coupe "Coccinella"||This two-seater coupé was shown for the first time at the 1964 Turin Motorshow. Seven of these smart litte cars survived and it is said that these seven are the whole production. Why seven and not ten, a more logical number? I haven't got a clue...|

|Fiat 500 Utility||The 500 Utility looks like the 500 Gardiniera, but it is build one year (1959) before the first Gardiniera.|
