The popularity of the Fiat 500 really is transcontinental. The guys with the triple diamonds on their white lab coats developed this Mitsubishi 500 during the late '50s, with a production model hitting the roads of Japan in the early '60s. This particular example represents the first racing victory for a Shin Mitsubishi Heavy-Industries automobile. Kazuo Togawa took the 750cc class in the 1962 Macau Grand Prix behind the wheel of a 594cc Super Deluxe 500. Three more Super Deluxes right behind him took 2nd through 4th place, setting the stage for super performance! [A Glorious History via Mitsubishi]
