LEGO and Fiat have come together for a new Creator Expert set highlighting the iconic Italian city car, the 500. While celebrating the classic model, the build also pays homage to legendary Italian film, La Dolce Vita.
“Throughout its illustrious history, the Fiat 500 has surpassed its original material manifestation to take its place in the collective unconscious, becoming an international icon. This is also demonstrated by its recent exposure at the Museum of Modern Art in New York,” said Cristiano Fiorio, Head of Brand Marketing Communication, FCA EMEA Region. “We know well that LEGO chooses only iconic products, and we know that the Fiat 500 is not only a car but an artistic and cultural phenomenon with strong symbolic value, as well as a joyous and colorful expression of the Italian spirit around the world.”
LEGO’s 960-piece set is inspired by the Fiat 500F from the late 1960s. The build boasts a functioning sunroof, luggage rack, spare tire, and bonnet that opens to showcase the engine. It also comes with an easel and a painting of the car in front of the Roman Colosseum.
