Fiat is going back in time for a new edition of the 500 cabrio -- 1957, to be exact.
Fiat Chrysler Automobiles is giving the 500c a retro “1957 Edition” treatment.
The car takes inspiration from the 1957 Fiat Nuova Cinquecento.
Orders for the car are already open with U.S. deliveries set for this spring.
Pricing starts at $24,700 -- $1,900 more than a base Fiat 500c Lounge.
The cabrio is the sibling of the regular Fiat 500 1957 Edition, which was released in 2014.
Its introduction comes as U.S. demand for the 500 softens: sales total 7,995 through March, a decline of 5.6 percent.
The car features a sport-tuned suspension, all-season performance tires, 16-inch forged aluminum wheels with a retro body color design, throwback Fiat badging and a dual-layer, power-operated cloth top.
Buyers can choose from a brown “Marrone” or ivory “Avorio” leather interior. Three exterior colors will be available: Bianco (white), Verde Chiaro (light green) and Celeste (celestial blue).
“The Fiat 500 1957 Edition celebrates the spirit of the original 1957 Nuova 500, and with the arrival of a cabrio version, we are adding open-air fun to the iconic Italian-designed Fiat 500 1957 Edition,” said Jason Stoicevich, head of the Fiat brand in North America.
The retro convertible will be produced in “limited” numbers. An FCA spokeswoman said that the company does not disclose production plans or figures.
The original Fiat Nuova 500 was released in 1957, and the company built 3.8 million over 18 years.
