Fiat Fiesta for Mumbai
The Annual rally of the Fiat Classic cars were held early Sunday morning. 100 classic Fiats cruised through the city catching the eye of all Mumbaikars. The Rally began as the cars assembled at Bandra Reclamation and then made their way through the Bandra-Worli Sea Link finally halting at the Bandra-Kurla Complex.
The Fiat Classic Car Rally is in its ninth year and its popularity is growing. The oldest of the 26 cars on the grid was a 54 Fiat 1100 Milicento and the newest car was a 2016 Abarth Punto, less than a day old on the road.

Great initiative by the Fiat Classic Car Club of India (Mumbai). Such drives not only showcase the rich heritage of the Fiat brand but also demonstrates its connect with India, especially Mumbai – the home of Fiat's manufacturing since decades. It was indeed a delight and a proud moment for us, FCA India, to watch Classic Fiat car owners taking such good care of there priceless set of wheels. We look forward to many more such drives.

We formed the club nine years ago with six members. We are now up to over 50 members and over 120 cars. The annual rally has always seen great participation and the trend continues this year with 26 cars taking part on the drive. I'm ususally the last car in the convoy and to look out and see a long line of classic Fiats driving through Mumbai always seems to work its magic and take you to an era where these cars ruled the road.
