Most people know that Italian automobiles are like works of art on wheels, but that's about it. Germany may be the birthplace of the automobile, but few countries have demonstrated as much love for cars as Italy. This small country shaped like a boot is home to quite a few automakers, both big and small. The contributions Italians have made to the worldwide automotive landscape are simply undeniable.
Despite having some crowded cities where riding a bike, moped or walking might be preferable, the Italians have demonstrated quite a love for the automobile. They've even produced a huge array of small cars to fit in these urban areas, that are still amazingly fun to drive. Just take a Fiat 500 for a spin to experience that feeling. That's without even mentioning sexier brands like Ferrari and Lamborghini. The list of Italian automakers goes on and on.
Of course, if you live in the U.S., you've no doubt dreamed about taking a Testarossa on an all-out run on the interstates of West Texas (as long as the state troopers don't catch you!).
With such a vibrant, rich automotive heritage, there's a lot to know about Italian car markers. Just how extensive is your knowledge? Take this test and find out right now!
