Giovanni Agnelli founded FIAT Automobiles S.p.A with the help of a group of investors in 1899. The name is an acronym for ‘Fabrica Italiana Automobili Torino’. Fiat became the Italian leader in vehicle mass production as of 1910 and has led ever since.
Popular cars from manufacturer include the Panda, the Punto and, of course, the iconic and Fiat 500. Recently the Italian manufacturer has decided to re-interpret the famed 500 with a contemporary design. The new Fiat 500 is available for rent with Elite Rent-a-Car. Many of Fiat’s cars are hatchbacks and city cars, however, it is known to have made small sports cars, such as the 124 spider, as well as an SUV, the Freemont, but have abstained from entering the family and executive sedan in recent years.
Fiat truly captures the ethos of the Italian “Bella Vita”. Their cars’ ease of use and fun yet refined design make Fiats a delight both to drive and to look at.
Fiat is one of only car brands to live through three different centuries. Their first car was built in 1899. Fiat called it the Fiat 4 and, as the name suggests, had 4 horsepower (4.2 hp to be exact).
Fiat used to have a testing circuit on the roof of their factory, named the “Lingotto”building , in Torino. The Lingotto building, inaugurated in 1923, became the largest car factory at the time. The factory and track were in use until the 1970’s when Fiat’s expanding operations outgrew them. Today the factory serves chiefly as Fiat’s administrative headquarters.
