Indeed, that looks awesome. Great photos; thanks for sharing! Amazing to see the original and new Fiat 500 side by side! Although I kind of know the answer but have we all become giants that that 2018 Fiat is what we now consider a small car?

The guy getting in the little Cinquecento and driving away was +190cm, but he managed it quite well :D

I don't have experience with the original 500 but certainly with the original Mini and that was the same thing; a 1.90m tall guy could comfortable get into a mini, not hit his head on the ceiling and drive the car. Sometimes they changed the position of the sliding rails and he would almost look out of the rear side window (and then of course no more rear leg room) but these cars were amazing "packages".

We may see a kind of new design revolution now that electric cars give more freedom to designers as to what to do with the nose of the car. I'm very intrigued by the new Jaguar I-Pace. of course not a mini car comparable to the 500 or the Mini but it apparently gives acres of interior space due to the absence of a conventional motor in -what seems to be- a Golf-sized package:

I could live, eat, sleep and wake up in this garage no problem and smell the ALFA's fragrance,
thanks for this.
