After a 27 year absence, Fiat has officially returned to the United States as the company has delivered the first batch of 500 Prima Ediziones to eager customers.

According to Laura Soave, Head of Fiat North America, "We are delighted to begin delivering the highly-anticipated Fiat Cinquecento Prima Edizione models to our cherished Fiat fans." She added, "The Prima Edizione marks the exciting and long-awaited return of the Fiat brand and true Italian automotive design to North America."

As we have previously reported, the 500 Prima Edizione (First Edition) features exclusive badging, an individually-numbered plaque, and unique interior trim. Power is provided by a 1.4-liter MultiAir four-cylinder engine that develops 101 hp (75 kW / 102 PS) and 98 lb-ft (133 Nm) of torque. It is connected exclusively to a five-speed manual transmission, but a six-speed automatic is offered in non special edition models.
