Completely updated & enlarged second edition of a popular Veloce classic.
Now with detailed coverage of the popular Seicento, 192 artpaper pages and over 200 pictures, many in colour.
From the famous Topolino of the 30s, to the modern Seicento, here's the full and eventful story of the baby Fiats, with particular emphasis on the now classic 600 and Nuova 500 of the 50s, 60s and 70s. Always big on character, Fiat's little cars played an important international role in providing affordable and practical private transport for millions. Built in, and exported to, many countries outside the marque's native Italy, over 6.5 million Topolinos, 600s and Nuova 500s were sold and an amazing number survive today. Read, too, about wonderful models built on these tiny chassis by Italy's leading coachbuilders, licensed models from other manufacturers and the motorsport success achieved by Abarth versions of the small cars everyone loves.
'We're going to give this book our first rating a simple four star system, with four stars being the ultimate rating. Malcom Bobbitt's Fiat 500, 600 & Seícento rates three stars, which is to say it is comprehensive, well written, enjoyable and essential for most Italian car enthusiasts. It is published by Veloce Publishing in Great Britain, not to be confused with Veloce Press in Nevada, or VeloceToday ... a book which deserves a space on your shelf.'
'The entertaining story is accompanied by great photos, drawings, cutaways, road test info, racing versions and model variations ... it is a treasure trove for FIAT and Abarth enthusiasts, owners and vintage racers.'
