Abandoned Fiat 600 Multiplas (Location Unknown)

At just 10 feet in length, the Italian-designed Fiat 600 was produced to the tune of over 2.5 million cars between 1955 and 1969, and became an icon of the booming “Spanish miracle” of that same period. The Fiat 600 Multipla followed in 1956, cramming six people into a space less than 20 inches longer than the original Mini Cooper.

More of a minivan than a car, the rear-engined Multipla saw use as a taxi in many parts of Italy during the 1970s, and could accelerate from 0-50 mph in a stomach-churning 43 seconds. The design is also immortalised – towing a caravan – in the early ’90s hit song Weather with You by Australian/New Zealand band Crowded House.

Plenty of Fiat 600 Multiplas survive today, though the ones shown in these photographs by urbex photographer Hugo Cardoso have certainly enjoyed better times – and apparently haven’t seen the light of day for years.

Photographed in 2009, the images reveal what appears to be a small indoor boneyard of abandoned Multiplas. At least two vehicles are present, perhaps awaiting restoration. The location is unknown, though the compact car hulks could be in either Spain or Portugal.
