The car that replaced the Topolino had big shoes to fill.
Dante Giacosa, Fiat's leading designer at the time created the 600, Fiat's first true city car.
It was nothing short of a miracle. He designed a car for four adults that was no longer than 328 cm and just 139 cm wide.
Dante put the engine at the back (it became Fiat's first rear-engined car), which gave more room for seating at the front. And being practical, economical and produced in high numbers, the 600 was instrumental in Italy moving again after the war.
