The Fiat 500 is a two-door, four-passenger, transverse front-engine, front wheel drive city car manufactured and marketed by the Fiat subdivision of FCA since 2007 in hatchback coupé and fixed-profile cabriolet body styles. Derived from the 2004 Fiat Trepiùno 3+1 concept (designed by Roberto Giolito), the 500's styling recalls Fiat's original 1957 Fiat 500, nicknamed the Bambino — a model that was designed and engineered by Dante Giacosa with more than 4 million sold over its 18 year (1957-1975) production span. Translated from concept to production design under the design direction of Frank Stephenson, the 500 features Dante Giacosa's 1964 breakthrough front-wheel drive layout — which ultimately became an industry standard, the layout "adopted by virtually every other manufacturer in the world" for front-wheel drive.
The Fiat 500 is available with a bunch of different engines — from a 0.88 L (53 ci) TwinAir Turbo with 84 hp (63 kW) and 145 N·m (107 lb·ft) @ 1900 rpm to a 1.4 L (84 ci) Turbo Multiair with 135 hp (101 kW) with 133 N·m (98 lb·ft) @ 4000 rpm, not including the "tuned by Fiat" Abarth engines. The 0.88 L model has a top speed of 173 km/h (107 mph) and the 1.4 L model a top speed of 177 km/h (110 mph).
