Jason Torchinsky:

Now, this has been known for a few months, but I don’t think the overall implications of why this car was purchased have really been explored. Many sites have attributed the purchase to Apple Design Chief Jony Ive’s known love of early rear-engine Fiats and his charity auction (with Marc Newson) of a 1959 Fiat Jolly, but I don’t think that’s really the motivation, and, in any case, even if they’re based on similar mechanicals, the concept and design of a Multipla and a 600 Jolly (or even a conventionally-roofed sedan) couldn’t be more different.
