These renderings come from Lazzarini Design Studios and are quite ambitious. This is a Fiat 500 that is powered by a 4.5-liter V8 that is also in the Ferrari 458.
Yes, that is a huge V8 barely fitting in behind the front seats. The company says that this car will weigh 2200 pounds when created, which is minuscule compared to the 458 that weighs 3,274 pounds. If this car gets created, it will be the fastest Fiat 500 and the only one I would actually like to drive. While the Abarth version isn’t that bad, it’s like saying “her mustache isn’t that bad.”
Lazzarini Design Studios is calling this concept the 550 Italia and are currently looking for investors to help them with the project. The only downside is that this project will cost around $550,000, and the Ferrari 458 itself costs around $258,000. Why buy the Fiat when you can have the Ferrari?
