Cute Italian city car will be making its official UK debut in London next week
28 September 2007

The new Fiat 500 is making its official UK debut next week, and appropriately it'll be at the Viva Italia exhibition in London.

The new 500 has already been selling well in its home country, and arrives in UK showrooms next year. On its first day on sale, Fiat got 10,000 orders for the 500, and it's already had to ramp up production to meet demand.

As well as two new 500s, Fiat will be showing a Panda, Bravo and Grande Punto on its stand, but sadly not in new Abarth form.

Viva Italia is a billed as a "celebration of the very best in Italian products, fashion, travel, entertainment and cuisine" and runs from 5 to 7 October at Olympia.
