This small and feisty Cinquecento has the heart of a Ninja
Humble hatchback transformed into a track day monster.
Here at Oversteer we're obsessed with people taking high-powered motorcycle engines and stuffing them into tiny cars.
Recently, an Italian bloke took an underwhelming Fiat Cinquecento and transformed it into an apex predator.
Produced between 1991-1998, the largest engine (originally) offered in the Cinquecento was a 1.1-litre four-cylinder, which only made 40kW, but this example is powered by a 1.4-litre engine from a 2012 Kawasaki Ninja.

It’s almost like the Italian version of our Aussie Racing Cars, with the driver sitting in the middle of the car, which appears to be a massive handful around the Castelletto di Branduzzo circuit in Northern Italy.
