Strange, exotic, unusual, head turning cars are common in Rome especially from an American viewpoint. I happen to be a self proclaimed “car nut” and am never disappointed and always pleasantly surprised by what drives around the corner – Fiats, Ferraris, Alfa Romeos, Lancias, Isotta-Fraschinis and then some.
One of my all time favorites is shown above. The Fiat 600 Multipla “van” (1955 – 1970) seats 6 adults comfortably, has a top speed of 58 mph, and goes from 0 to 60 in just under 35 seconds. I wish American vehicles were offered in such fun colors!
