Everything About This Piaggio Ape Is Adorable And Hilarious And Sad

Italy is a magical place, full of Italians and Piaggio Apes. And if you have no idea what a Piaggio Ape is, that is terrible. Because it's a delightful little three-wheeled pickup, and when fully loaded every sad little attempt to get up a hill is the silliest goddamn thing I've seen all morning. Until it flips.


Which is even better.

My none years of high school Italian are failing me right now, so I have no idea what these guys are saying through their massive and understandable giggling fit. But I imagine it's something along the lines of "look at us are we not Italian? Haha yes this is a very Italian thing to do hah." Because that just makes sense.


Many enthusiasts would consider a Ferrari, or a Lamborghini, or even a Pagani to be Italy's finest contribution to the automotive world. These people are wrong. Italy's finest contribution is the Ape, because anything involving it is wonderful.

It's funny to me that in the states people associate Italy with quality and craftsmanship and fancy things. Italy south of Rome is basically a developing country. And also a lot of other parts. It's a very funny country. I fcking love Italy!
