The small two-stroke 393 c.c. Vespa, at the equivalent of £255, is still the cheapest small car on the French market. Its nearest price rival is the Renault 4 c.v. Affaires utility model, at £320, but with a yearly output of under 9,000, the Vespa demonstrates the difficulties to a small manufacturer-and a two-stroke engine-of capturing a significant slice of the lowest price market.
