Panda Monster Truck

Date:20 February 2013 Tags:, , , , , ,

Fiat’s Panda 4×4 could in some circles be regarded as a bit of a giant-killer – but in this particular incarnation it’s simply a giant.

Thanks to some smart collaboration with Fiat partner Chrysler, the Panda makes use of a Jeep CJ7 4200 floor panel plus additional running gear comprising road tractor wheels and tyres 150 centimetres in diameter and 50 cm wide, fitted with specially turned solid steel flanges. The result is an extreme Panda standing nearly 4 metres tall, created specially for a TV commercial.

The Monster Truck was built over the course of two weeks by Fiat in collaboration with Mercurio Cinematografica, set designer Andrea Faini and the Fabio Gementi Workshop.
