This 1965 Fiat 600 Multipla might not be fast with its 22 horsepower 633cc engine, but you’d have to be one cold-hearted car enthusiast not to love it for its quirky looks alone. We’re also willing to bet it’s rather fun to drive with its four-speed manual transmission and rear-engine layout, which should help it find a new home rather quickly when it goes under the gavel at RM Sotheby’s upcoming Monaco auction.
The 600 Multipla, based on the 600 hatchback, was essentially a Fiat MPV. It could seat five and was used as a taxi in many parts of Italy throughout the 60s and 70s, but then its quirkiness and iconic looks won it some fans in the enthusiast scene and it quickly became a collector’s item.
This particular example underwent a no-expenses spared restoration, with the owner at the time photo documenting all the work in great detail. RM says the body is in “superb condition, with deep paint and well-aligned panels,” while the undercarriage of the car is equally as immaculate.
This 600 Multipla is being auctioned off without reserve however RM sold a similar example at its 2014 Paris sale for €33,600 (about $37,900 USD).
