Fiat Takes An Amazon Jungle Adventure!


Click for big version

Fiat has disclosed the first pictures of a new concept car that not only reveals a proposals for a radical cross between a sports car and a 4WD vehicle, but it also demonstrates the global depth of Fiat’s design and development abilities because the Fiat Adventure is 100 per cent a product of the ‘Centre Style Fiat Brazil’.

The Fiat Adventure ultimate version of range of ‘Adventure’ trim and equipment versions of Fiat models sold in Brazil since 1999, a market in which Fiat is a dominant force, not just in sales, but also technology with its FlexFuel vehicles and, now with the Fiat Adventure, styling, design and development.

Like the Adventure versions, the Fiat Adventure is a car designed for an outdoor life style with a sporting edge, so the concept is a go-anywhere sports car for two people, but clearly despite is high body and massive wheels, still has Italian design flair to spare.

The Fiat Adventure will make its debut at the 24th Sao Paulo International Motor Show this month before going on display around the world.
