Fiat released details on a new Cabrio version of the retro-stylized 1957 Edition Fiat 500. Last year, the Fiat 500 was offered in a cutesy, retro 1957 Edition, which featured a host of special paint colors, interior upgrades, and special badging. For the 2015 model year, the 1957 Edition package is now available on the 500C convertible.

The wheels are color matched to the exterior paint, along with a vintage Fiat center wheel cap. Both the front and rear Fiat badges are vintage look as well, accented by chrome trip strips on the front and the rear of the coupe. A sport-tuned suspension and performance all-season tires come as standard.

On the inside of the 2015 Fiat 500 1957 Edition, the retro theme continues, with an ivory white interior, contrasted by the standard brown leather seats. The steering wheel is wrapped in matching brown leather, with a vintage Fiat badge in the center. The key fob comes colored in the contrasting brown and ivory scheme as well. Under the hood, Fiat's 101-hp 1.4-liter inline-four engine and a five-speed manual transmission remain standard, with a six-speed automatic optional.
