Fiat Panda 4×4 Monster Truck

We haven’t really talked about the tiny Fiat Panda yet on this blog because honestly it isn’t really that special, however in today’s piece of news the Fiat Panda that we will be talking about is quite special.

Fiat thought of making a one-off Fiat Panda 4×4 by transforming it into a monster truck for the use of a European advertising campaign meant to show off the tiny SUV’s off-road performance.

The “FrankenFiat” was built in just over two weeks by combining the standard Panda 4×4 with a Jeep CJ7 4200 floor panel and road tractor wheels. The tyres are 150cm in diameter and 50cm wide, which result in a Panda that stands 3.9m tall, 3.8m long and 2.5m wide.

The add is about four friends setting off for a weekend in the mountains with their Panda 4×4 and then it turns into the monster truck in order to nimbly climb up to their mountain accommodations, stunning everyone in the process. Then of course there’s a funny twist at the end when the driver falls two meters when attempting to get out of the car, thinking he’s behind the wheel of a normal Panda 4×4.

The Panda 4×4 that debuted at this year’s 2012 Paris motor show is the third-generation six-speed manual five-door standard version of the model which is available with two engines – there’s the 63kW 0.9-litre TwinAir Turbo and a 56kW 1.3-litre MultiJet II diesel.

The Fiat Panda has garnered a different type of attention as well, from the clone-makers over in China, recently the Chinese Peri was banned by an Italian court because it “doesn’t look like a different car but is a Panda with a different front end”.
