What do you think of when you think of the coolest Italian cars? A speedy little Lamborghini or a flashy red Ferrari? What about a Fiat 500? That is precisely what you get with the Creator Expert Fiat 500 Lego Set 10271. This might not be the first name to comes to mind but when you see this new cool LEGO set you are sure to fall for this little car. The Fiat 500 is a classic in its own right and the designers of this set for teens have made sure to recreate it in all its glory.
This Fiat 500 set captures the retro design and quirky features perfectly.
The Fiat 500 looks like it could have driven through the streets of Rome for decades. There are some nice choices in the design of the wheels, the choice of tyres and the realistic shape to the body of the car. The interior of the car is also in full working order with the seats, steering wheel, gear stick and more. Additional details include the lights and license plate on the back.
As with many of the best large LEGO sets for adults, the beauty of the build lies in the attention to detail. There are some cute accessories to add to the luggage rack on the back. It seems that the owner of the car is an accomplished artist and is ready for a road trip. You get their canvas, easel, paints, brush and a trunk with stickers on it. You can also open up the back of the car to fit the complicated air-cooled engine – after all, there is no way you are going to get across the Italian countryside without it. The same is true for the cute little sunroof and the spare tyre in the front.
Just don’t assume that this is a kid’s car.
As this is a 16+ with a retro vibe, this is probably going to be more for adults and older teens than kids. They might not get the appeal of this nostalgic set. There are also almost 1000 pieces in total to put together, which isn’t bad for a small vehicle. This goes to show that you really do have to take your time with the Creator Expert Fiat 500 Lego Set 10271 to get it in working order. Make sure to treat the car well as you fix the interior and set it up for a trip. She won’t disappoint and could also be a great addition to any other Italian-themed sets that you might have.
