IT is not often you hear of a 'limited run' of just 24 vehicles from FIAT.

But that is exactly what they are doing with what they are calling the '500 Collection'.

It is based on the '500 Lounge', but has a number of equipment and style extras - for the tidy sum of just €150 more.

You can have white or red with 'contrasting detailing'. So if you pick white you get a red dashboard, red key cover and chrome-finished gear shifter. As well as that, there are red mirror caps, side mouldings, bigger 16ins alloys (centre caps have red details).

If you buy red, then white appears in all the contrasting areas.

It will have just the one engine - the 1.2-litre 69hp petrol.

Sounds like a bit of fun.

And there will only be 24.
