I hoped to see a Porsche, but this one is nice, too! Great color choice as well.

I hope it can be possibly built in other colors too.
It is much similar in size to 10242 Mini Cooper.

Here, I made the artist's kit on Stud.io:

After fiddling around a bit with saturation on the photos, I'm reasonably convinced the color is Bright Yellow, not Cool Yellow. Basically, I played with the color levels in two different directions - one to make the car look undeniably Bright Yellow, and one to make it firmly Cool Yellow. When I made it Bright Yellow, everything else about the box art looked more or less "right," but when I took it in a lighter direction, other elements of the picture started to look washed-out. I could certainly be wrong - and kind of hope I am, because I always look forward to cheese slopes in new colors - but that is my take on it.

On another note, I have to mention that the graphic designers really seem to be stepping up their game on background art! Both this and the Bookshop have really gorgeous settings.

Will it be available with a tow truck and several dozen flat tiles you can place underneath it to represent all of the various fluid leaks?

I have owned a '72 Fiat 500. Hoping to be able to change the color to Dark Blue / Tan as this was the color of my Fiat 500.

Love the model, and looking forward to the release. What is the expected release date?

The more I look at this the more I'm into it but it also got me looking into the car itself. The box notes Nuova 500 but it seems that model series had suicide doors but the model shows typical front hinges. Nuova model was produced from 57-61 in a couple trim levels, followed by the D series from 60-65, also with suicide doors. It wasn't until the F series in 65 did they have typical doors. That being said, aside from the door orientation, the Nuova, D, and F models all look very similar so I'm sure if you wanted to get super accurate one could re-engineer the doors to open suicide style. Anyway, something I thought was interesting.

Based on photos of the actual cars, Lego bright yellow would be fairly accurate by the time the F model was introduced but not the Nuova. Nitpicking but I find it interesting.

As for the Abarth, they were mostly white with brick red trim. I think you'd be able to mod this into an Abarth model very easily.

Look closely at the license plate. It says "TOFO1965." So yeah this is the 500F.
