Yellow Fiat 500 F for rent

Sunflower - 1967
classic fiat 500 rent

Introducing Sunflower, a vintage yellow Fiat 500.
Built in 1967, and equipped with its original number plate, this 500 belongs to the F series and is an ideal vehicle for tours to discover Umbria in spring, breathing the smell of the fields from the open hood, crossing Città della Pieve, Castiglione del Lago , Magione and the splendid villages of the province of Perugia, or perhaps going as far as Todi and Orvieto.
This vintage Fiat 500 can also be rented together with other vintage cars for the organization of incentive tours and corporate team building, or to be accompanied on a romantic weekend for two!

A couple of things to know before renting this vintage 500

- More than sixty years after its debut, the Cinquino still drives very well: it does not have power steering, but the reduced section of the wheels and the large steering wheel do not make you miss it. Furthermore, the small turning circle makes it particularly agile in the narrow streets of the villages of central Italy.
- For those who want to rent a vintage 500 for a wedding, wedding services and photo shoots: we take care of the request for access permits.
- For those who rent it for Fiat 500 tours: we provide maps and itineraries, and the possibility of booking in referenced agritourisms and bed and breakfasts.
- The old 500 has an excellent habitability if you travel in two. If you are more, perhaps it is better to consider renting another classic car!
- The 500 consumes very little: with two cylinders, a low weight and 499.5 cc of displacement, almost 20 km are covered with one liter. Who said classic cars consume more?
- Equipment: model F, year 1967, yellow color with black leatherette interior

Yes, but ... how do you get the gearshift down?

It only takes a little practice: for decades, the 500 was the training ground for many experienced drivers, who used the gearbox without problems.
The double is necessary on cars with unsynchronized gearbox, such as the Fiat 500: the other car in our vintage car park that has this characteristic is the Mehari, but in the case of Citroen twins it is only the first gear that is not synchronized.
The operation is only needed when downshifting since, for example, passing from third to second, the number of revolutions of the engine increases: since the gearbox gears also rotate together with the engine, you have to "help" them in the engagement by turning the engine a little faster with a flick of the accelerator.
The sequence is:
to. clutch
b. transmission in neutral
c. clutch release
d. tap of accelerator
e. clutch again (immediately! while the engine is still high revs)
f. engagement of the lower gear
