"The Fiat Cinquecento Prima Edizione was developed especially with the Fiat fans in mind," Soave, said. "For over a quarter of a century, the members of this Club have kept the spirit of the Fiat and Lancia brands alive in North America through their unique and passionate support for true Italian design.”
“We really value their loyalty, and the Prima Edizione is our gift of appreciation to these fans on behalf of Fiat North America."
Fiat 500 Prima Edizione will be made available in Bianco, Rosso and Grigio and will have the Prima Edizione badge stuck to them. As another touch of uniqueness, a sequential VIN and badge according to production order will come with each car.
All special edition models will be fitted with a manual transmission, paired to the 1.4l MultiAir four-cylinder engine. Reservations for the Fiat 500 Prima Edizione will be taken in the near future via www.ciaofiat.com, with prices to be announced at a later date.
As for the rest of the Americans waiting to get their hands on a Fiat 500 or another Fiat model, the wait is nearing its end. Fiat will come back to the US at the end of 2010
