Short diff

Hi guys, I am looking for a diff, for my r1 powered Fiat 600
I have limited space, the engine is mounted at the rear, with the drive pointing at the front.
My plan is to use a rwd diff, turned upside down.
Witch, readily awailable diff is the shortest ?
Ford 7 inch, Freelander , BMW or other ?
A lsd is a given, so it needs to have that awailable.

Thanks
HP

The MX5 different seems to be quite short from flange face to outputs.

Quick look on eBay and I thought MX5 too.
Ignoring the power capeability I wonder what one off a small 4x4 would be like for instance a Panda?
