The Fiat Multipla is a contradiction. It’s called the ugliest car in the world, but at the same time it’s a great family car; spacious like a living room. This Multipla transformed from car into sauna; from one social space into another. Inside you hear the music of Sun Ra, the cosmic afro-futurist. The Saunra is meant as a joyful healing space for our troubled times; a place of warmth, hope and humor.
