The Vespa 946 is perhaps the brand’s most expensive scooter, coming off only in limited production runs like the PHP 777,000 RED in 2018 and the Christian Dior in 2020 – with one being sold at Facebook’s Marketplace for a staggering PHP 2.5 million.
Now, there’s a new special edition 946 coming out and Vespa dedicates it to the Year of the Rabbit.
The Vespa 946 10° Anniversario, dedicated to the year of the rabbit, will be issued in a limited and numbered series and only 1,000 units will be produced worldwide. This will be the first stage of an important project that will span for the next 12 years and which will see the introduction of a new annual edition each year, inspired by the lunar horoscope animal of that year.
Since its debut in 2013, the Vespa 946 has established itself as the archetype of the Vespa of tomorrow, which interprets the values that have made Vespa a global icon while injecting it with a contemporary spirit and a forward-facing attitude. It is an Italian-made masterpiece, which has now become a real collector's item, taking shape in a dedicated production line that is more like an haute couture atelier than anything else. This special version is issued in a reworking of the classic Vespa green, to symbolize the love of fun, light-heartedness, and nature typical of those born under this sign. The stylized silhouette of a rabbit peeps out on the body.
All the details of the Vespa 946 10° Anniversario are made in a refined burnished finish with warm reflections, while the double-upholstered saddle is black with burnished stitching and is sewn by hand with needle and thread, as are the handgrips.
Philippine availability and pricing are yet to be announced.
