This LEGO 1968 Fiat 500 F!, made from 1157 pieces, could become a reality if the project receives enough support
Is it reasonable to ask more of LEGO, given that they have already offered us the Ferrari F40, the Caterham Seven, THAT Porsche 911 GT3 RS, and even a W16 Bugatti Veyron engine, among so many others?
Yes. Yes it is. Especially when it’s this very cheeky ‘68 FIAT 500.
Though it’s not a licenced product yet, the 500 is one of the many potential products currently on LEGO’s official ‘ideas’ page. If it gets enough votes or support – particularly financial – then LEGO will put the iconic FIAT into production, much as it did with the aforementioned Caterham Seven.
And believe me, it would be well worth it. The quality is excellent as you can see for yourselves in the above video, a true representation of a 1968 Fiat 500 F!, considered one of the world’s first true city cars during its 1957-1975 production cycle. All doors open (including bonnet and boot), while the rear features a removable luggage rack containing a suitcase, a bottle and glass. Two options for the sunroof are included, meaning you can have the soft top open or closed.[Not a valid template]
In the trunk, and in a neat little touch we find a spare wheel, fuel tank, car jack and a toolbox. Circle around the rear – past a detailed interior with movable seats, pedals, handbrake – and you’ll find a LEGO 500cc straight-twin engine. You do get a lot from your 1157 piece-build, don’t you…?
Reactions to the recent ‘Voltige’ video – as well as Felix Hernandez’s ‘Love Car’ artwork – suggest to us that there’s enough Cinquecento fans out there to make this 1968 Fiat 500 F! a reality. If you’re one of them, you can find out how to do so HERE.
