Appearing in 1968, the 500 L was the luxury variant of the Fiat 500. It was equipped with reinforced bumpers, but more importantly saw its interior revamped. The dashboard was entirely re-coated, the meters taken from the Fiat 850, the new seats were more comfortable, and the chair back could be repositioned manually. This version was a commercial success, becoming the most product model of the 500. Half its production was exported, making this car a veritable icon of Italy.
