Before Chrysler Group LLC starts selling the Fiat 500 to American everywhere, it will sell a limited edition version called Fiat 500 Prima Edizione. The Auburn Hills automaker, which is ran by Fiat SpA, has announced that it has received 500 deposits at $500 each for the limited production run of 500 units for the Fiat 500 Prima Edizione (try saying that really fast 10 times).
According to Ariel Gavilan, a Chrysler spokesman, more than 1,000 people are on a waiting list for the limited edition if an opening comes up.
The 2011 Fiat 500 will be available for mass public ordering later this year in the Sport, Pop and Lounge models, followed by the all-new Fiat 500C (convertible) in the spring of 2011. Prices will be announced closer to launch.
