 Fiat 500 with Ferrari V8 by Lazzarini Design
Lazzarini Design 550 Italia 22.6.2012

Has 550 PS (405 kW / 542 hp)

Lazzarini Design has released the first renderings of the 550 Italia.

Based on the Fiat 500, the model features an aerodynamic body kit with new bumpers, revised side skirts and a prominent rear wing. There's also a roof-mounted air intake, a dual exhaust system and a reinforced chassis.

Power comes from a rear-mounted, Ferrari-sourced 4.5-liter V8 engine that produces 550 PS (405 kW / 542 hp). It normally develops 570 PS (425 kW / 563 hp) in the 458 Italia, but Lazzarini detuned it to optimize traction.

The company is currently looking for an investor who is willing to spend $550,000 (€437,410) for the development of the "toy."

This car is not something you see everyday. With its rear 542 horsepower engine that is in the rear of the vehicle and unique look, it is no surprise that the company is still looking for investors. But, it would be cool to see this car in action

the rear reminds of the mid '70s renault 5 turbo... the rest rather of the famous topolino in the '50s... Obviously Europe is once again in love with downsizing (body and displacement)as it was in the sixties. That's a disguised reaction (into "fun") to the crisis we're all in, I think.

I guess that Chinese won't pay for this, so hope someone from the Middle East make it come true.

This can easily smokes the Juke-R in a drag race. It is much lighter

Ya but the juke has awd, launch control, and dual clutch, unless this thing has launch control and a dual clutch, the juke will take it in the quarter mile, this might take it in the half mile after the wheels stop spinning, and i dont think there is room for that engine, and if someone hit you from the back, ur last moment on earth would be in a fiat 500
