Fiat honors Disney's centennial with a collection of five uniquely crafted Topolino models, each featuring a charming cartoon character theme.

The connection between Fiat and Disney is as enchanting as it is historic; the Topolino, which translates to "little mouse" in Italian, shares its nickname with none other than Mickey Mouse himself, a fitting moniker given to the 1936 Fiat 500 for its mouse-like features.

Fiat Centro Stile engineers meticulously crafted four of these models, while the fifth is a masterpiece by Disney artist Giorgio Cavazzano, reflecting a pure Mickey Mouse theme.

Drawing inspiration from Disney's pioneering animation "Steamboat Willie," each model carries a distinctive style — from Mickey's initials to street art and vibrant abstract patterns — celebrating Disney's most iconic figure.
