Vespa Grand Sport

by Piaggio

The scooter "Vespa Grand Sport" from Piaggio in Italy was manufactured between 1955-59.

Its design is representative of the streamlined form of typical 20th century products. The first Vespa was introduced in 1946 and the designer was the former helicopter constructor Corradino D'Ascanio. After the war, the aeroplane manufacturer Piaggio lost orders and the Vespa managed to save the factory. It was a very popular and inexpensive vehicle during the reconstruction of Europe during the years following the war. The name Vespa, the Italian word for wasp, alludes to its design.
