Hopefully most of you know what a Fiat Cinque Cento looks like, however if not, they are the smallest cars imaginable, yet they are as cute as can be! Cinque Cento means 500 hundred in Italian, and when referring to a car, that means 500 horsepower.

We rented two vintage Cinque Centos for the day in Tuscany, one from 1969 and one from 1974. It was hard to believe that the little engine was as efficient as 500 horses, but it did indeed make it up each mountain and hugged each switchback! It was loud, and bumpy yet fun as could be. Afterall, how often do you get to drive a teeny car on back roads with a landscape comprised of cypress trees lining each curve, vineyards and olive orchards in the distance, and medieval village on the crest of every mountain top? It was a very memorable day indeed!
