The Piaggio Ape is a three-wheeled light commercial vehicle, manufactured and marketed by Piaggio as an adaption of the company's Vespa scooter. It has been in continuous production since its 1948 introduction and offered in numerous body configurations to serve a wide range of utilitarian functions.
Initially marketed as the VespaCar or TriVespa, Piaggio subsequently marketed the utility vehicle as the Ape, derived from the Italian for bee; its scooter marketed as the Vespa, meaning wasp. Currently two model ranges are offered, the Ape 50 with a 49.8 cc petrol engine and the larger Ape TM which comes available with a 218cc petrol engine or a 422cc diesel engine.
This particular example is the TM model which is powered by the larger 218cc engine and is presented in white with a cream interior. The doors are canvas and the roof is white canvas providing some protection to the elements but ultimately providing a lot of enjoyment to anyone travelling in it. The present owner has used this TM sparingly to go the pub in or to take his grandchildren around the garden in it for fun rides. Either way, this is something which will bring a smile to anyone’s face, it has only covered a mere 205 miles from new and comes with a V5 registration document and a current MoT test certificate which expires in February 2022 – great!
