The original Fiat 500 is remembered as an economy car designed to give people a cheap, practical mode of transportation back in the 1950s. Though the first 500 remains a fun affordable classic, some folks use them for a much more extreme purpose: hillclimb racing.
This 500—technically a Seat 600, the Spanish-market variant—was built by Spanish shop as a purpose-built hillclimb car. Gone is the original 633cc engine, and in its place sits a inline-four from a Suzuki Hayabusa with an 11,000-rpm redline.
As you can see, the car's body has been extensively upgraded with huge fender flares, a gigantic squared-off front bumper, and a massive rear wing. The interior is completely stripped out, with a roll cage and fixed-bucket racing seat.
According to the video's description, this 500 only weighs around 1250 lbs in race trim, which explains the car's wild cornering speeds. Watch for yourself as it flies up the hill flat-out.
