•Rare utilitaire MV Agusta
•Un des 2 000 1100 D2 construits
•Utilisé dans la région du Piémont en Italie
•État « sortie de grange » à restaurer

Aussi étrange que cela puisse paraître, ce charmant petit utilitaire a été construit par la légendaire marque MV Agusta. Mieux connue pour ses grosses cylindrées quatre temps à quatre cylindres, MV Agusta a aussi construit de petites motos légères tout au long de sa carrière et, à ses débuts, proposait des deux temps et même un scooter. La marque convertit même une de ses motos en engin de livraison tricycle –autocarro en italien – dont le premier exemplaire apparut en 1954. Des autocarri utilitaires à quatre roues suivirent. Ils étaient équipés par différents moteurs construits par MV, le plus gros étant un bicylindre diesel de 1 079 cm3. Délivrant 27 ch, celui-ci équipait le modèle 1100 D2 qui fut présenté en 1957 et resta en production jusqu'au début des années 1960. Les raisons qui poussèrent MV à se lancer sur ce marché restent un mystère, compte tenu du fait qu'il n'avait aucune chance de réussir face à Fiat. On estime que seulement 2 000 exemplaires de 1100 D2 furent construits dont très peu ont survécu.

Utilisé pour le transport du vin, de la bière et de l'eau autour des villages du Piémont, ce très rare autocarro MV Agusta est vendue dans un état d'origine « sortie de grange » remarquable. Une fois restauré, il fera un parfait moyen de transport au prochain rassemblement pour vos MV Agusta restaurées.

•Rare MV Agusta commercial vehicle
•One of a mere 2000 examples of the D2 produced
•Used in the Piedmont region of Italy
•'Barn find' condition, for restoration

Unlikely as it may seem, this charming light commercial vehicle was manufactured by the legendary MV Agusta. Although best known for its large-capacity four-cylinder four-strokes, MV Agusta built lightweight motorcycles throughout its manufacturing career and in its early days listed small two-strokes and even a scooter. The company even adapted one of its motorcycles to serve as a three-wheeled delivery truck - a motocarro - the first of these lightweight commercials appearing in 1954. Four-wheeled autocarro commercials followed. These were powered by a variety of MV-built engines, the largest of which was a 1,079cc twin-cylinder diesel. Producing 27bhp, the latter powered the 1100 D2 model, which arrived in 1957 and lasted in production into the early 1960s. Why MV bothered with this market is a mystery, as there was never any chance of them competing successfully with FIAT. It is estimated that only some 2,000 1100 D2s were made, of which very few survive.

Used to transport wine, beer, and water around the villages of Piedmont, this ultra-rare MV Agusta Autocarro is presented in remarkably original 'barn find' condition. Once restored, it would be the prefect way to transport your collection of MV Agusta motorcycles to the next meeting.
