Diminutive Barchetta concept is based on the Panda 100HP
5 March 2007

This tiny, handmade roadster (the one on the right, obviously) is coachbuilder Bertone’s Geneva show star.

The Bertone Barchetta is based on a Fiat Panda 100HP and was inspired by the Bertone Fiat 500 Barchetta from 1947 (that'll be the one on the left).

The whole body is hand-tooled aluminium, and features scissor doors. Inside, the open cabin has an adjustable instrument pod and a pair of exposed fans for heating and ventilation.

Our Verdict

Fiat Panda

A very fine multi-use little car that offers an enticing ownership proposition
