Vehicle Description

To Be OFFERED AT AUCTION WITHOUT RESERVE at RM Sothebys' The S�ragga Collection event, 20 - 21 September 2019. Estimate: €20,000 - €30,000 Charming, seldom-seen Vespa microcar Previous restoration in beautiful colour scheme Piaggio, already well known for their iconic Vespa scooter, released the 400 microcar in Monaco in 1957 to enthusiastic response. The new model was built in France by ACMA in Fourchambault to the Piaggio design. The first year saw 12,000 cars fly off the production line as consumers snapped up the cute microcar. With several advantages over a scooter, the Vespa 400 was perfect for the small cobblestone streets of Europe. Rear-engined, the microcar had room in the rear for luggage or two small children. The pretty little coupe with a rollback roof compared favourably with the stylish Autobianchi Bianchina, apart from its smaller two-stroke motor. The shell was a monocoque, with a unique and advanced strut suspension. This example appears to have been fully restored in the past and is presented in a beautiful blue with period-correct cream-coloured wheels. Charmoso e invulgar microcarro Vespa Restaurado h� algum tempo, numa bela combina��o de cores A Piaggio, famosa pela sua ic�nica scooter, lan�ou o microcarro 400 no M�naco, em 1957, obtendo uma resposta entusi�stica. O novo modelo foi constru�do em Fran�a, pela ACMA, em Fourchambault, mas seguindo a conce��o da Piaggio. No primeiro ano, 12.000 unidades sa�ram da linha de produ��o, em resposta ao grande interesse dos consumidores. Apresentando in�meras vantagens sobre uma scooter, o Vespa 400 era perfeito para as pequenas ruas em paralelep�pedos da Europa. Gra�as ao motor traseiro, o microcarro tinha espa�o atr�s dos bancos para bagagem ou para duas crian�as pequenas. O pequeno coup�, com um tejadilho de lona que se enrolava para tr�s, comparava-se favoravelmente com o elegante Autobianchi Bianchina, apesar do seu menor motor a dois tempos. A estrutura era um monobloco, com uma suspens�o �nica e avan�ada de amortecedores telesc�picos. Este exemplar parece ter sido totalmente restaurado no passado e � apresentado num belo azul com jantes de cor creme, corretas para a �poca.To view this car and others currently consigned to this auction, please visit the RM website at rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/pg19 .
