Fiat photobombs Volkswagen’s Google Street View picture

Those searching for Volkswagen’s headquarters in Sweden using Google Street View will get a surprise – a Fiat 500 has been parked directly across the entrance.

According to the Daily Mail, Fiat staff spotted the Google Street View car, which uses a camera on its roof to take images of the streets, driving past its office and decided to drive to the Volkswagen offices 45 minutes away to ‘photobomb’ their rival’s picture.

Looking up the Volkswagen Södertälje headquarters shows the image of the red car parked outside, and with Street Views normally updated once a year, Volkswagen will have to put up with the image for some time.
