Italian designer spends £75,000 adding 100kg of HUMAN HAIR to her 40-year-old Fiat 500



  • Designer Maria Lucia Mugno spent £75,000 attaching 100kg of human hair to her vintage Fiat 500
  • Every possible surface in the tiny car is covered in human hair which has been washed and disinfected 
  • Online auction house Catwiki are currently selling the unusual car, with bids expected to reach £100,000
  • The new buyer is recommended against using the car, which is a world record breaker, in bad weather  

The world record breaking ‘Hairiest Car in the World’ is being auctioned after an Italian designer spent 20 days and £75,000 covering it in human hair.

The car was added to the Guinness Book of Records in 2010 and, despite carrying an extra 100kg of hair, is still able to drive on the road.

Stylist Maria Lucia Mugno disinfected, washed, bleached and dyed the hair before attacing it to the car.

According to the auctioneers Catwiki: ‘The 500, which now shows blond and dark braids, has often been hosted by the Show of Record, a very followed Italian television program, where it won the most hairy car world record twice: in 2010 and again in 2014 thanks to an addition of a hat (still made of natural hair) affixed on the canopy


‘The record has been certified both times by the Guinness Book of World Records.

‘The car is perfectly running but we do not recommend the use on rainy days.’

Although, buyers, who will have to spend more than £100,000 to buy the car will have to travel to Salerno to pick it up!


Surprisingly, the small Fiat 500 is still road legal and can fly around the Italian streets despite its unusual coating
