Fiat 500 Marcia Corta by Camal

We've seen all sorts of things done with the Fiat 500. People have chopped the roof off, covered it in gold, planted trees in it, taken it rallying and even moved the engine to the trunk. The latest, however, could prove the most intriguing.

Founded by a couple of former Pininfarina designers, a new outfit called Camal is working on the project you see here. Called the 500 Marcia Corta (Italian for short gearing), the idea is to give the Cinquecento a more rally-inspired look.

The signature elements are quad rally lamps, giant grille opening and full aero kit with side skirts, fender flares and rear ring. A rear bumper mimics the look in front, integrating a new exhaust system.

The creators are reportedly looking for funding to get their project off the ground. In the meantime, check out the renderings in the gallery for a closer look.
