Fiat has unveiled its latest 500 Collezione special edition model, which appears this time in its Autumn guise.

The changes to the 500 are purely cosmetic, with a range of new colours, materials and details available on the Collezione. Two Collezione models are launched each year – one for spring and one for autumn.

A range of stylish liveries are offered – including a ‘Brunello’ combination made up of maroon and grey detailing.

The Collezione is available as both a hatchback and as a convertible (500C) – the former coming as standard with a fixed glass roof.

Other details differentiating it from the normal model include chrome badges and copper pinstriping, alongside copper-coloured 16-inch alloy wheels.

The pinstriping continues to the interior, which also features half-leather seats and a ‘Bordeaux’ 500 logo, as well as different floor mats.

Standard features on the Collezione include parking sensors, automatic lights and wipers, and a ‘UConnect’ touchscreen.

It’s available exclusively with the 68bhp 1.2-litre petrol engine, and with a five-speed manual or the optional ‘Dualogic’ automatic transmission.

Fiat has a long history of making special editions of its chic 500, with over 30 having been produced since 2007 across the Fiat and Abarth brands.

Prices for the Autumn 500 Collezione start from £14,060, with order books now open.
