More than 5000 enthusiasts gathered at Garlenda in Italy for the 23rd International Fiat 500 Owners Meeting, to watch 500 Fiat 500 cars create the largest 500 insignia in the world on the Dei Fiori racecourse at Villanova d'Albenga. Then, as the 'convoy' headed off towards Casanova Lerrone, it exceeded the two miles in length required to beat the record.
Fiat tells us that this is really just a rehearsal, because next year is the 50th anniversary of the Fiat 500. It will also be the eve of the new Fiat 500 launch, therefore, the Fiat 500 Club Italia, organisers of the event, are calling on Fiat 500 owners and fans from around the world to start making preparations to travel to Italy for, what is expected to be, the biggest Fiat 500 event in history.
"The Fiat 500 is loved by everyone who enjoys simple things. It is a car that unites the world," says Domenico Romano, honorary president and founder of the Club.
