The all new Ape Calessino 200 is designed to comfortably accommodate two passengers plus the driver. This absolutely original vehicle stands apart from the crowd with its inimitable personality and unique charm and perfectly embodies the joie de vivre of the Mediterranean lifestyle.
Originally launched in 1949 the Calessino quickly established itself as an icon of Italian style and romance, an integral part of the landscape of the country’s historic cities and magical coastline. in the 1950s, through its appearance in the film La Dolce Vita it became associated with the high society of legendary places such as Cannes, Capri, Portofino and the Greek islands.
And now Wharfedale has its very own Calessino in striking ivory with a cream canopy and plush leather upholstery, not to mention its three white-walled tyres. With a top speed of 37 mph, It’s absolutely perfect for pootling up and down the delightful back roads of the Dale, affording fabulous views and enabling a contact with the landscape that is just impossible from a normal car.
