fitted with a ferrari F136FB V8 engine, the carbon fiber shelled fiat ‘550 italia’ concept car by lazzarini design, will be a one-off production. to accommodate the high performance motor, its stock front engine, rear seating and all of its back package has been removed. as well as this, the original wheelbase, measuring 230cm, has been increased by 35cm in order to provide aligned transmission. the automobile itself is 35cm wider at its rear and around 25cm fatter in the front, when compared to the ‘cinquecento’. transferring more than just a prancing horse’s motor, the vehicle also includes their gearbox, transmission and suspension-including rear-block. weighing 500kg lighter than the standard model, the unique ‘550 italia’ is expected to cost $550,000 USD.
