With 925 horsepower as his disposal, Nobuhiro Tajima has smashed his previous record of 10 minutes 01.41 seconds, and as the video will show, he really pushed that car to the limits, with water spewing out of the radiator as he came to the finish.

Autocar has released a second video today, in which this time they compare the original Fiat 500 introduced back in 1964 with the new model.

At launch the 1964 Fiat 500D had a price tag of 556 GBP, while if you are interested in buying one of these today, you will most probably pay around 8,000 GBP for it. Power came from a 2-cylinder 479cc petrol engine developing 16.5 bhp @ 4,000 rpm and 20.3 lb-ft @ 2,500 rpm, which enabled the 498 Kg two-door to hit a top speed 57 mph, so no 0 to 60 mpg times available 🙂
