Someone round the corners just bought one!
I always wanted one when I was 16, far too slow though really.

300 km on a full tank! Not bad when a full tank is only 10 litres!

We had one at a bike shop I worked at years back.Original one though, sold as a 'Vespacar'. Max 40mph and unstable at that speed. Loved it...

If you really want an “Ape”..and I looked into it quite seriously for my nephew..check out the insurance first though…’cause “it’s a commercial vehicle, innit?”.. then take a trailer..a mate to help load and have a giggle.. a pocket full of Euros and head off to Roma…. They’re like street litter there at the moment… just thrust the wonga in their mitts and bring her home….





Or as an alternative, I might know where there are a couple of these little beauties for sale if you can splash the cash….
