    something most guzzis folks are not aware of :

    At the end of the fifties the Moto Guzzi and Fiat led a very discreet negotiations to evaluate the possibility of equipping the Fiat 500 ( five hundred ) with a more powerful engine, suitable for a sports version, which should have been produced by Mandello.
    The office Experiments and Studies Moto Guzzi created between 1958 and 1959 a first prototype engine two-cylinder V-90 degrees.
    Designed by Eng. Giulio Cesare Carcano, had 496 cc (66x73mm) and developed a 21cv 5.300giri/min.
    For the experimentation road was used a " Fiat Nuova 500 " prototype , as amended in the trunk rear air intakes, the car was up to 115km / h while maintaining the same power consumption.
    When the prototype was discovered by the magazine "Quattroruote" ( Italian car magazine ), the Guzzi had to deny saying that it was a military experiment.
    The project was developed with a new version 594cc from 34cv but then was not followed because the Guzzi would not have been able to meet the production volumes Fiat.
    The testing of the engine, however, was still continued and it would eventually born the famous motor 700 of the Guzzi V7.

    I personally saw a lot of fiat 500 modified with moto guzzi V7 engine in it.

    cheers

    that car was made by a company called "innocenti" , they used to make the "lambretta" scooter.....
    Anyway that one was the second attempt for a car company to use the Guzzi Twin .... the cool thing about the fiat 500 project was that the engine was placed in the trunk , and the car was rear traction.. :)
