Wanted!: good home for the most stunning and honest example of a classic Fiat 500 for sale in the UK today. Initially registered in Modena (home of Ferrari, hence original period Tax disc and Ferrari dealer badge), Luigi is a fantastic little chap and we’ll be gutted to see him go. But needs must and recent banking crisis (tax bill) forces sale of this much loved family car.
Since owning Luigi he has undergone a full maintenance and improvement scheme, including, new brakes, new fuel tank and fuel lines, new steering bushes, filters, tyres, rear seat belt fitment, rewiring and a full overhaul of all key elements and parts and hours and hours of polishing. As such, he now runs like a dream and we’ve never owned a car that attracts so much attention or delivers so much fun.
The engine was upgraded from the regular model to the 650bhp engine from a 126 mated to the original “crash” ‘box and pulls cleanly. Steering is solid and accurate and car has many additional Abarth bits and bobs including the steering wheel, gear stick, bonnet stays and badges.
Luigi comes with all mod cons including a full “ragtop” and rare optional hardtop, CD player, fully function air conditioning (open a window) and rare Fiat alloys.
There are a lot of preened 500s out there, but Luigi is authentic and you wont find a better example on sale today. Happy to discuss any specific questions you might have so please feel free to call Charlie on his mobile: 07779 623 568
