When we saw some of the publicity pictures of cars these past few years, we knew the 1970s were threatening to come back: bright greens at Ford, oranges at Subaru among them, as evidenced at Autocade.
Fiat has been more explicit with its fashionable 500. The retro-chic car, which was inspired by the 500 of 1957, is sporting 1970s colours with its Colour Therapy range. With five colours available‚ÄĒPasodoble Red, Countrypolitan Yellow, Volar√© Blue, New Age Cream and Tech House Grey. The wheels are meant to recall whitewalls, while the hubcaps are intentionally retro. Inside, there’s a “pool ball” gear knob.
Fiat says it has brought the 1970s theme in for the 500 given fashion trends. Photographer Elisabeth Hoff has already shot the 500 in a retro-inspired shoot, using colour blocking as a technique.
The range begins at ¬£10,760 and hits UK dealers later this month.
