Vehicle history

Rarely has a car been given more nicknames than the Fiat 500 Nuovo: the cuddly little car has been christened "Scatola" (little box), "Topolino" (little mouse) or even "Enzo", after the legendary Ferrari partner Enzo Ferrari. And even today, the Fiat with the teddy bear face still wins the hearts of all the people on the street. This Fiat 500 from 1971 spent most of its life in sunny Italy. There, the 500 was completely restored with new parts before it came to Germany in 2012. Refined with numerous Abarth parts, the car was transformed from a micro car into a micro sportscar. The vendor regarded the 500 as an additional family member that just happened to live in the garage. A vehicle expert report from 2012 confirms a condition of 2+ for the small two-seater. Due to good care, this condition has not changed, as numerous receipts and invoices show. According to the owner, the vehicle has been accident-free in his care.

Exterior & interior

In classic baby blue color, the little Italian attracts everyone's attention, garnished with numerous Abarth decals and contemporary motorsport stickers. Even the sunroof has been renewed and upgraded with a chequered flag pattern. In the small wheel arches, 5x12 aluminum wheels in the Abarth design and 145 "wide tires" are pressed against the asphalt. The chrome bars of the Lusso bumpers are a pretty add-on. Another contemporary detail is the "hood opener", which fans the air-cooled twin with an extra portion of air. The interior of the Fiat was given a visual and sporty upgrade during the restoration. Contemporary bucket seats with integrated headrests and retrofitted three-point seat belts now provide a degree of safety, while a small wooden steering wheel provides a better grip. A center console encases the otherwise bare wooden gear knob. The seats and door panels are lined in genuine brown leather and carpet to match the light blue exterior color.

Technical condition

As part of the overhaul, the original 500 twin engine was completely overhauled and fitted with a twin-pipe sports exhaust. Due to its reliability, the restorers refrained from further tuning measures. The four-speed gearbox (note: 1st gear unsynchronized) with its thin gear stick shifts like on the first day. With 145 wide tires on Abarth rims and an optimized chassis, the Fiat-Abarth drivers the king of traffic circles. Of course, all vehicle modifications are registered in the papers and the vehicle has a historic license plate.

The vehicle is being offered on behalf of a customer.

FAQ

To bid, you must register as a bidder. The registration process on HeartBids also includes registering with our free escrow. To protect our users and to comply with EU legal requirements, your identity must be verified during this process. HeartBids adheres to the highest privacy standards and never publicly shares information from the identity verification process. We only share whether the verification was successful.

With an instant bid, the amount entered is immediately confirmed as a bid. This means you can make large bid increments without numerous lower bids in between.

Absentee bidding allows you to set a maximum bid up to which bids are automatically placed for you. In this case, the absentee bid always increases by the current minimum bid. Absentee bids are especially interesting if you can not actively participate at the end of an auction and want to bid in absentia.

Please note that if there are several identical highest bids, the bidder who placed their bid first will get the bid!
The minimum bids increment depending on the status of the auction. Up to 50.000,00 €, the minimum bid is 250 €. Between 50.001 € to 100.000 €, it is 500 € and from 100.001 € the minimum bid is 1.000 €.
After you win an auction, our escrow will ask you via email to deposit the vehicle price and the commission into the escrow account. The account is automatically set up and for this transaction only. Simultaneously, you can contact the seller and arrange the vehicle transfer. The escrow will inform the seller as soon as you have deposited the money. At this moment, a 14-day payout period begins, after which the money is automatically paid out to the seller unless you object to the payout. If you need a more extended payout period, e.g., because of long transportation, you can stop the automatic payout. However, you are obliged to release the money as soon as you receive the vehicle, and it matches the description.
The buyer's commission is 6% (incl. 19% VAT) of the auction proceeds or at least 600€ (incl. 19% VAT). With increasing auction results, the percentage of the commission drops. The exact amount of commission can be found in our pricing overview
Added value for buyers:

The trust-based payment process takes place step by step, thereby preventing you from being left with no money or goods at the end of the day or paying for something that you did not order or commission. With an escrow agent, you can be sure that your contract partner endeavors to carry out the basic business quickly and to your satisfaction.

When you hand over your vehicle in person, you do not have to make a detour to your bank to withdraw cash and transport it from A to B - you just pay on delivery quickly and easily with one click

Added value for sellers

. You do not have to take any financial advance risk. The buyer or customer pays the agreed price (also partial or partial payments possible) before you ship the vehicle. Once the money has been deposited into the escrow account, the buyer won't receive the money without your consent.
