Mention the words 'modified' and 'car', and a clapped out Corsa with a humongous spoiler and a terrible bodykit usually springs to mind. This Fiat 126 however, is a bit different.

The owner of this ancient little Italian has turned both seats around, and has installed pedals and an extra steering wheel in the rear to create a car that can be driven 'backwards' at speed. The result is possibly the strangest modified car on the planet.

Still able to be driven both ways, this Fiat also features a turning circle that can be measured in centimeters, thanks to four-wheel steering - a similar system used on the new Porsche 911 Turbo. Hit play and prepare to be impressed shocked.
