1968 Autobianchi Eden Roc cabriolet

In France, the photo of Brigitte Bardot at the wheel of an Autobianchi Eden Roc cabriolet in the publication Jours de France undoubtedly contributed to the prominence of this attractive automobile. It was the dynamic André Chardonnet, Autobianchi importer for France, who was responsible for the launch of this convertible derivative that was finished more luxuriously than its mass-produced sister. It used the Fiat 500’s base with rear-mounted vertical two-cylinder air-cooled engine.
This car is exceptional, having been part of the personal collection of HSH Prince Rainier III. As with all the Prince’s cars, it was registered PM13 indicating the Palais de Monaco. It was bought by the current owner in 2012 and is complete with its hood. The car is presented in correct form, with particular finishing details such as the bumpers that are curved at the end to accommodate over-riders, with indicators resting on top. Fun to drive, this Eden Roc with exceptional provenance will delight its new owner, whether used in town or for leisurely drives in the sunshine.
