This is something I was quite anxious to film and show to you, and it’s about an Ape Car Proto, powered by a Honda 600cc engine, driven and built by Loris Rosati. I’m not 100% sure but I think most of my foreign followers probably never heard of an Ape car.
Well, an “Ape car”, or simply called Ape, is a three-wheeled light commercial vehicle produced since 1948 by the Italian company Piaggio (same producer of the more famous Vespa). The Apes (Ape means “Bee” in Italian) featured 50 cc, 125 cc, 150 cc and 175 cc engines. read more: 19Bozzy92
In the current ones you can find a proper car steering wheels but usually they are controlled with scooter style handlebars. It was designed to host just the driver but, tightening a bit, 2 people could fit in the little cab.
With a very low top speed, a good torque and thanks to its dimensions you can find most of this little vehicles on mountain villages for light delivery works.Enjoy the great stunts and show (with a few on board footages too)!
