    Look at this car carefully, if I was to tell you this fanatical piece here, in actuality, is a Fiat Premier Padmini. Would you believe it? Wouldn’t you just sit there, mouth wide open, gaping at the sheer ingenuity of the idea, one that has now become Fiat’s most beautiful car ever - the SB1100.

    “Every time I saw a Fiat 1100 D or a Premier Padmini, I would see lines beyond the black-and-yellow exterior”, says Bijoy in his book Instant Carma, “I always thought the Padmini was hiding a little red sports car”. ‘Thinking’ about making a sports car is easy, all it takes is some mind-churn but ‘making’ a car! Would you even encourage that thought? But Bijoy and Sanjeev Mestry, MD, Sanva Motors did just that. They fashioned a sports car from a Padmini with such precision that you’d blink twice if I told you it was hand-made right here in India.

    Awesome.. I knew our 1100 held more promise than what many think, and this a fine example of the hidden magic. Super work.

    Nice work to keep the FIAT going, when others are simply scrapping them.

    I hope the structural rigidity of the car wasnt compromised by chopping the roof etc off. Have you checked that?
