Mama Mia!

The Fiat Centenario. The Fiat Centenario.

New Holland has exhibited a concept tractor to give everyone a look at what a Fiat machine might possibly look like if it were built for the modern era.

The Italian tractor builder — best known for its blue hue — revealed the concept at the recent EIMA 2018 event in Bologna, Italy.

For those who need reminding, the Fiat brand disappeared after 1999 when CNH Global was formed.

The concept on display dubbed ‘The Fiat Centenario’ also commemorated the 100th anniversary of Fiat Tractors, noting that the first Fiat Trattori was the model 702 built in 1908.

Dreamt up by CNH Industrial’s Design Centre, the Centenario was inspired by the Fiatagri series 90: “to revisit an iconic tractor range and update it with the flowing lines of a modern tractor,” to quote New Holland. 

These tractors will sport the famous terracotta colour scheme, with the colour updated to include a metallic finish, while the hood emblem will link the New Holland leaf to the Fiat heritage. Each tractor will carry a numbered plate to identify it as a limited edition within one of six ranges.

Rural News understand these tractors will be the T5.120EC; T5.115 T4.110F-Cab; T4.110 LP-ROPS; T4.110FB-ROPS and TK4.110-ROPS models.
