Just like the premium price BMW is getting for the Mini, Fiat appears ready to ask for a bit of a retro surcharge. Automotive News is reporting that the Cinquecento will start at about €10,000 ($13,020). That's quite a jump from the 500's platform-mate Panda, which rings in at €8,600 ($11,200). And another Mini-like nod is that Fiat will offer tons of options to customize your car to your own personal tastes. We'll take a white and red Abarth, thankyouverymuch. Fiat plans to start selling the 500 in September and hopes to move 120,000 of them a year. At least that's the production goal from the Polish plant where Fiat will be building these alongside the new Ford Ka that shares its platform, engine, and suspension.
