Myriad Fiat 500 special editions have been launched since the current model went on sale in 2007. We've recalled the good, the bad and the ugly

The Fiat 500 plays the car as fashion accessory like no other.

Even the Mini, doubtless the partial inspiration for the 500’s impressive option palette, hasn’t offered quite the scope of these limited-edition 500s, their appeal widened through collaboration with a number of fashion houses and even Ferrari. Several have been produced to a specific limited quantity, others on sale for a demand-driven period.

The latest batch celebrates 60 years since the first Fiat 500 appeared. All make a distinctive car more distinctive still and have helped to keep sales of this now 10-year-old 'new' version of the car flying high.

Flick through our gallery above for all of the special editions of Fiat's 500 since the current model's birth in 2007.

Anyone who dosen't have nostalgia for the old 500 has no reason to buy a retro new 500. It is designed to look like the old 500 and be cramped. Also, we still want to see FIAT above the bottom of reliability surveys.Forza Italia!!

I took a 500 on a 1000-mile trip recently. Room for my  6'1" bod, plus just enough for my bags and camera gear. The start-stop was a pain on steep Yorkshire hills and streets, so I switched it off. Overall, a pretty good experience, with much more headroom that the ultra-tiny original 500.

The Diesel edition was rather daft, as it, well, wasn't.

    Hyundai's funky-looking Kona crossover with a peppy three-cylinder engine makes all the right noises for the car to be a success in a crowded segment

    The Citroen C3 Aircross has got funky looks and a charming interior, but it's another small SUV, and another dynamic miss. Numb steering is just one thing keeping it from class best

    16 October 2017
    Diesel version of Skoda’s junior SUV is unobtrusive and undemanding, but we’d still go for the silkier petrol version of the Karoq

    Expensive and flawed but this understated diesel-electric Audi Q7 has a lot to offer
  • Citroën C3

    Is the third gen Citroën C3 ‘fresh and different’ enough to take on its supermini rivals? We spend six months with one to find out
