BRUMM 1/43 FIAT 600D MULTIPLA 'RAI'


Introduction in 1955 it was produced until 1964. With a total length of 139ins (345cm) it had three rows of seats to accommodate six people. Powered by the Fiat the Fiat 600 saloon engine of 633cc, the little bus would happily do 50 mph and give 45 mpg. The rear-mountd engine meant luggage space was limited but the seats did not fold down. Used as taxis in their native Italy, the fully independently sprung minibus was original people carrier back in the mid 1950s, an idea that has been taken up by the Japanese car manufactures of today.
