Castagna500woody Italian coachbuilder Castagna has unveiled the Fiat 500 WoodyWagon at Geneva which is a stretched Fiat 500 mimicking the famous Mini Clubman.

The Fiat 500 has been stretched by 50-60mm at the rear overhang as the wheelbase keeps its dimension. The C-pillar has been moved back, of course, and is also more vertical featuring a new rear side window. The 500 by Castagna comes with a two-color painting emphasized by the external wood frames.

Aside the exterior changes, the 500 WoodyWagon is powered by the 1.4-litre petrol unit on which the coachbuilder added a supercharger. The power output jumps from 100bhp to 155bhp and the 500 WoodyWagon can reahc a top sped of 124mph. No price has been given.

The 500 WoodyWagon is appealing lengthened 500 and one does hope that Fiat will consult the coachbuilder to design the future 500 estate due to appear in 2010.
