Avolette at Paris Motor Show.


M. Avot jest francuskim przedstawicielem lotniczej firmy Cesna Aircraft. Nabył on od Egona Brütsch'a licencję na wytwarzanie sportowych mikrosamochodów z charakterystycznym, skorupowym nadwoziem. Miały one nosić nazwę Societe Air Tourist, Paris France

Surprisingly there was only one new minicar model of French manufacture, the Avolette. It can be supplied as an open two-seater or with a detachable sliding top. All bodywork is entirely in plastic, made from the waste by-products of the paper manufacturing activities of the sponsoring company. Suspension is by rubber all round. The two front wheels are independently sprung on trailing arms. At the rear, the pair of wheels are close together and between them passes the chain drive from the single-cylinder, two-stroke, motor-cycle engine and gear box unit. Four different engines are available-250 c.c. Maico, 200 c.c. Sachs, and 175 c.c, or 125 c.c. Yoral.
