Fiat 600 Multipla - 1963

Following the Second World War in Italy, there was a growing demand for practical yet affordable transport. The Fiat 600 was already a bestseller by 1956, when the Multipla was first launched, but the new model soon found a loyal following of its own.

Designed to fulfil the needs of larger families and commercial users, the Fiat 600 Multipla was conceived by Dante Giacosa. Giacosa’s design was truly a feat of engineering packaging. By advancing the passenger compartment over the front wheels and moving the engine to the rear, he created one of the first successful mono-space cars and was able to extract six seats from a car that was only 11 feet and 6.9 inches long!

Three versions of the Mulitpla were available, including a 4/5-seater with bench seats front and rear, which could be folded to make a bed. The 6-seater had a front bench and four individual seats that folded completely flat into the floor. Finally, a taxi version had a single seat and luggage platform in front, separate folding seats in the middle, and a bench seat in back, together with a division.
