Together with the Mini Cooper and the Volkswagen Beetle, the Fiat 500 is one of the emblematic European cars that have made their mark in the history of the automobile. The three cars share two characteristics – a diminutive size and style that have stood the test of time. They all have their own Lego sets, although the Fiat 500 is the only one that needs an official Creator Expert model kit.
It ends today as Lego officially launches the original Fiat 500 Lego Creator Expert model kit. Available with a price of $ 89.99 in the United States, the official Lego set is a touch of nostalgia in an Italian setting.
The Fiat 500 Lego Creator Expert model kit is based on the original Fiat 500F from the 60s and is available in a very recognizable pale yellow hue. It measures over 4 inches (11 centimeters) high, 9 inches (24 centimeters) long and 4 inches (11 centimeters) wide – quite large, making it an adorable centerpiece or display cabinet.
Made from 960 pieces of Lego bricks, the original Fiat 500 Lego kit would be a relaxation me time for adolescents and adults, with a pinch of Parmesan.
The Fiat 500 Lego kit is also incredibly detailed. It comes with a luggage rack with suitcase and detailed interior, while its roof, doors, hood and tailgate can all be opened. To complement the Italian flavor, Lego adds a small “painting” of the car in front of the Colosseum in Rome, with a folding easel and a brush.
If you are interested in purchasing one of the Fiat 500 Lego Creator Expert model kits, it will be available in Lego stores and on Lego.com from March 1, 2020.
