500... The history of the Italian myth
Following the success of the “600”, Vittorio Valletta commissioned Dante Giacosa to build a super-utility car, whose purchase, use and maintenance costs could be compatible with the modest budget of working families. The idea came from a project by a young German employee of the Deutsche-Fiat of Weinsberg who, in 1953, presented the design of a two-seater micro-car inspired by the shapes of the famous Beetle. The 500 R, or rather “Renewed”, was presented at the Turin Motor Show in 1972 and resumes the features of the first 500: simplification and spartanity, but with a displacement increased to 594 cubic centimetres and the power of 18 horsepower.
