LEGO's fiat 500 lets you own a (miniature) icon of italian automotive design

thanks to LEGO you can now own an icon of italian automotive design for less than $90. however, instead of petrol, this miniature fiat runs entirely on imagination and creativity. the car, which is based on the fiat 500F from the late 1960s, boasts impressive features, such as the luggage rack complete with suitcase, exquisitely detailed interior, and opening roof, doors, hood, and tailgate. to complete the italian theme, the model car even comes with a folding easel that presents the fiat in front of rome’s famous colosseum.

the model fiat is part of LEGO’s ‘creator expert’ series, which includes everything from classic model cars to authentic buildings and wind turbines. comprising a total of 960 pieces, the car measures over 11 centimeters (4.5 inches) in height, 24 centimeters (9.5 inches) in length, and 11 centimeters (4.5 inches) in width. in order to recreate a taste of ‘la dolce vita’, the included building instructions — available to download here — recreate the look and feel of the car’s original promotional material.
