The Spanish Vespacar Motocarro 125 from 1958.

The VespaCar was a motorcycle car characterized by its low consumption, great maneuverability and low weight. In Spain it was widely accepted as it inherited the same concept that made its other model so popular, the scooter that offered simplicity, lightness and economy.

Vespa is an Italian luxury brand of scooters and mopeds manufactured by Piaggio. The name means wasp in Italian. The Vespa has evolved from a single model motor scooter manufactured in 1946 by Piaggio & Co. S.p.A. of Pontedera, Italy to a full line of scooters and one of seven companies today owned by Piaggio.

From their inception, Vespa scooters have been known for their painted, pressed steel unibody which combines, in a unified structural unit, a complete cowling for the engine (enclosing the engine mechanism and concealing dirt or grease), a flat floorboard (providing foot protection), and a prominent front fairing (providing wind protection).
