It's an animal! Fiat Panda transformed into monster truck

The popular motor's new look could flatten city traffic and is ideal for winding country roads

A humble Fiat has undergone a monster of a makeover.

The Italian Fiat Panda supermini has been transformed into a beast of a car with 1.5 metre diameter wheels - making it more fit for a monster truck competition.

The popular motor's new look could flatten city traffic and is ideal for winding country roads.

The overhaul took two weeks to complete and allows the Fiat to tackle the toughest terrain.

In addition to its super wheels, the Panda uses the platform of a Jeep CJ7 and stands at 3.9 metres tall - 2.5 times higher than the original model.

Fiat worked alongside Mercurio Cinematografica, set designer Andrea Faini and the Fabio Gementi workshop.

The car was built as part of an advertising campaign for the standard Fiat Panda 4x4, to be aired on television next year.

The 4x4 has been specially designed for a commercial (SWNS)
