Fiat UK is celebrating 30 years and 500 000 sales of its Panda with the introduction of a special edition called the Antarctica.
This nifty little off-roader is only available in white with a black roof, with some diamond-finish alloy wheels thrown in to make it that bit more special than the standard car.
Inside, the FIAT Panda 4X4 Antarctica features grey and orange upholstery with numerous additional standard features such as dark-tinted rear privacy glass, a height adjustable driver’s seat and three-passenger rear seat with 60:40 split/folding backrests. As with all examples of the FIAT Panda 4X4 sold in the UK, the Antarctica edition also features air conditioning, ESC stability control, an electronic locking differential (ELD), specially tuned suspension, mud-and-snow tyres and rugged bodywork protection all as standard.
Only 300 examples of the Antarctic will ever be made, so it’s highly unlikely we’ll ever see it in South Africa.
It’s a pity, as the latest Panda, in 4×4 guise, seems to be quite the giant slayer.
Check out the video below to see how well it copes when the going gets tough.
