Fiat 750MM Panoramica Zagato

Based on a 1949 Fiat 500C, the 750MM Panoramica is perhaps the cutest creation ever to role through the doors of Zagato.
The combination of aluminium body panels and Plexiglass windows kept the kerb-weight down to a positively anorexic 530kg; the use of Plexiglass enabled the styling house to create boldly curvaceous windows that just wouldn't have been possible with regular glass.
More than merely a styling exercise, the 'MM' in the name refers to the Mille Miglia; indeed, the 750MM placed fourth-in-class in the 1949 event, averaging 57.5mph over the entire distance.
