Fiat 500 (Lego Ideas project)



Published on Aug 23, 2016

Support this Lego Ideas project here!: https://ideas.lego.com/projects/149421

This project features a highly detailed replica of the iconic 1968 Fiat 500 F! Produced from 1957 to 1975 the Cinquecento is considered one of the first real city cars.

Consisting of 1156 pieces this model would be the ultimate for any fan of the Italian legend and definitely a great addition to any Lego collection.

The major features are:
• detailed exterior with custom prints such as the fiat logo and several prints on the back end,
• openable hood, trunk and doors,
• sun-roof (closed and opened),
• removable luggage-rack on the back end,
• suitcase with a bottle and a glass inside,
• detailed trunk with spare wheel, fuel tank, car jack and a toolbox,
• engine compartment with a detailed 500cc straight twin engine,
• detailed interior with movable seats, pedals, handbrake as well as custom prints for the dashboard and the speedometer.

As mentioned above the proposal for the set includes two sun-roofs which can be interchanged to have the roof either opened or closed. Furthermore, it also includes a removable luggage rack with a suitcase.

Recall Alert: 2016 Fiat 500

RECALL Subject : Incorrect Spare Tire Information/FMVSS 110

Report Receipt Date: SEP 15, 2016
NHTSA Campaign Number: 16V667000
Component(s): EQUIPMENT , TIRES
Potential Number of Units Affected: 32


Manufacturer: Chrysler (FCA US LLC)

SUMMARY:
Chrysler (FCA US LLC) is recalling certain model year 2016 Fiat 500 vehicles manufactured June 11, 2015, to July 27, 2016. The tire placard on the affected vehicles lists a tire inflation pressure for the spare tire that exceeds the maximum pressure listed on the sidewall. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 110, "Tire Selection and Rims."
CONSEQUENCE:
If the spare tire is used while overinflated, the tire may suddenly fail, increasing the risk of a crash.
REMEDY:
Fiat will notify owners, and dealers will add an overlay on the tire placard to the correct tire inflation information, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin October 28, 2016. Owners may contact Chrysler customer service at 1-888-242-6342. Chrysler's number for this recall is S69.
