Fiat Panda is cut in HALF to create the world’s lowest car
Talk about a lowrider! Fiat Panda has been cut in HALF to create the world’s lowest car – and it still steers and drives like a regular vehicle
- Italian YouTubers have transformed a Fiat Panda into a kart-like vehicle
- The bizarre car requires the driver to crawl in through the window and lie down
- Incredulous crowds gathered as it moved seamlessly down gravel roads
The Fiat Panda is a charming little car that can be found in countless garages around the world.
But a group of Italian YouTubers wanted to make it even smaller in a bizarre scheme to create the world’s lowest car.
The so-called ‘Carmaggheddon’ group has revealed impressive footage of their attempt to transform a Fiat Panda into something much closer to the ground.
Cut just below the windows, the lower half of the vehicle was replaced by a go-kart, raised by only four small wheels.
Like any other car, it moves seamlessly across the roads when put through its paces on gravel, drawing crowds together in disbelief.

“Hello beasts,” Carmagheddon captioned his latest video.
What happens when you walk down the street with the shortest panda in the world? We’re about to find out.”
Perhaps expected, the car seems to run a bit slower than a typical Fiat Panda, thanks to the removal of the engine.
But a driver can steer and propel the car like any other with the wheels and pedals of the go-kart inside.
To do this, a person has to crawl through the rear window and lie on their back to get into a driving position.
Although this is called the “lowest car in the world”, it is not clear how big the slashed Fiat Panda really is.
The latest Guinness World Records suggest that this title was claimed by Mirai – it measures 17.79 inches (55.2 cm) from the ground to the highest point.
This vehicle was assembled by students and teachers at Okayama Sanyo High School in Asakuchi, Japan.
It ran on six main batteries and the propulsion unit came off of the Q-car produced by the Japanese company CQ motors.

Viral images of the sliced-up Fiat Panda have stunned thousands of viewers who can’t believe it’s a functioning vehicle – albeit an illegal one on the UK’s roads.
“It’s like seeing an ultra-realistic car game, but with the glitched car on the street,” said one person.
‘Sell it to Hollywood! As a stunt machine for reality/time manipulation movies, it’s perfect!’ said another.
Meanwhile, one quipped: ‘ABSURD!! We want the next one upside down.’
The Fiat Panda is certainly not Carmaghedon’s first crazy project, with several creations being shared on their YouTube and Instagram channels.
A bicycleable bathtub and a giant exhaust on the back of a Mitsubishi Colt are among the countless crazy projects they have worked on.
