After the success of the Ape Calessino in 2007 with the Limited Edition (999 pieces for the whole World) this year Piaggio went above and beyond launching another Limited Edition of the Calessino but a eco-freindly one this time, the Ape Calessino “Electric Lithium”. Originally designed by brilliant aeronautical engineer, Corradino d’Ascanio, the Ape’s star truly rose during the economic boom of the 1950/1960’s, the famous La Dolce Vita. Extremely fashionable and popular the Ape Calessino was the very essence of what Italy was all about: enjoying leisure time with style and with panache. Now, modern day drivers have the opportunity to live that dream with the Ape Calessino. The folding top and the four seats make the Calessino ideal for a leisurely drive, perhaps with a picnic hamper in the back. Life is always a Holiday in the Calessino.
