The current 500 is supporting the Fiat brand with is everlasting popularity and diverse range. The rebirth of the 500 model was a real succes, even now, 10 years after.
The two millionth Fiat 500 was made at the Tychy plant in Poland today. The Fiat 500C Collezione, sporting an exclusive two-tone white and grey Primavera livery and powered by the 85hp TwinAir Turbo engine, will be sold in Italy.
The new special series celebrates the 500 with new colour and material combinations and a cool and stylish spirit. It comes packed with standard equipment including 16-inch alloy wheels, chrome-plated accents, a grey/white/grey beauty line and the cursive “Collezione” badge on the boot.

The production of the two millionth car at the Tychy plant is a proud milestone in this remarkable success story.
