This car started life as a Fiat Cinquecento. You can find an early example of the Cinquecento–the Fiat 500--in the micro car area. As rallies are a very popular form of motorsports in Europe, most manufacturers offer “kits” to transform a production car into a rally car. The interior is gutted to reduce weight, racing seats are added for additional support, while a roll cage has been added for safety and strength. The engine has been enlarged and modified to double the stock horsepower rating. Most rallies are run at night in rural areas to prevent the competition from interfering with normal traffic. This is the reason for the four extra headlights. The signs on this car denote that it has participated in several international rallies.
