Chained to their Fiats: Flickr photo of the day

Michael Clemmer
Compass4 December 2013

In 1957 Fiat introduced the Cinquecento, a car that became so popular that it became known as the “People’s Car” to the Italians. Later referred to as the 500, it helped illustrate the insanity of Roman automobile traffic. People loved their little 2-cylinder Fiats, “suicide doors” included. The cars didn’t change from year to year. A 1972 (seen here with anti-theft device) looked pretty much like the original ’57.

In 2014, Fiat, now owned by Chrysler Corporation, will bring back the Cinquecento, which was discontinued in 1975. Called the 1957 Nuova Cinquecento, and with design touches by Gucci, they hope to rekindle the intense love Italians had for the original.
