They cost just £200 when new, but you'd pay about five grand for a good one now, which is a lot of dosh for not a lot of car. And it's hardly one of those classics you could use every day.

But it's hard to see how, on those few occasions when weather and destination made it the right choice, a trip in a Fiat 500 would not make your life a better, happier and somehow slightly more magical experience.
