Fiat has introduced a special limited edition version of the Fiat 500 for the Chinese market, ahead of the car’s official launch there in September

The ‘First Edition’ model is based on the top of the range lounge trim and adds white paint, red leather interior and badges on the door pillars. Numbers are also limited to just 100 units.

Under the bonnet sits a 101bhp 1.4-litre four-pot petrol engine, which is mated to a six-speed auto box.

Fiat vice president international operations Lorenzo Sistino said: “The 500 will have many versions and special series, in addition to the 100 ‘First Edition’ models. Next year we will be launching the 500C convertible and the exclusive ‘500 by Gucci’ special series.”
