Take a look at this crazy Fiat Uno 8x8 with eight wheels!
After creating a truer-than-life replica of the Tesla Cybertruck, the Russians of Garage 54 have just built an even more striking machine: an eight-wheeled Fiat Uno. Not really surprising in reality since Russians are generally used to surprising us, no matter how good the result is!
To move a car, you need at least three wheels as on the Reliant Robin. For obvious safety reasons, it is advisable to use four wheels like most modern cars. Six wheels is starting to be a lot...but not enough for the mechanics of Garage 54 who added four wheels to an innocent Fiat Uno!
And to add four extra wheels to the little Uno (3.60 m), the Russians had an ingenious, if far-fetched, solution: simply stack the fourth axle on the two rear axles to obtain a triangle shape. You can appreciate the entire construction of this masterpiece via a video posted on the YouTube Garage 54 channel.
After hours of welding and assembly, the Fiat Uno 8x8 receives studded tyres and white rally car-style rims. The final touch is the bodywork, which is painted in a bright red paint that is furiously reminiscent of the sporty Uno Turbo. And when the car is running, the six rear wheels are in contact and turn in opposite directions like gears, which gives a rather bluffing effect.
