Car Spotting – Rome

Fiat 600 Multipla, TrestevereFiat 600 Multipla, Trestevere

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!
