A Renault Twingo “De Plage” signed Vernagallo

Vernagallo, an Italian coachbuilder specializing in the creation of discoverable and open-air cars, transformed the Renault Twingo into a beach car.

The independent bodybuilders, free from all creativity, have historically always been very inspired. In particular to carry out offbeat and original vehicle creations, on the basis of sometimes very classic appearance models.

We thus remember the six-wheeled vehicles by Christian de Léotard, DS and CXs transformed into tray or ambulance by Tissier, from 607 Paladine convertible from Heuliez or even the 4L Torpedo de la Sinpar

On the other side of the Alps, a Italian coachbuilder has also stood out for its vehicle transformations into eccentric, discoverable models and outdoor: Vernagallo.

Pleasure bodywork

This Turin coachbuilder, born and still led by Giovanni Vernagallo, indeed offers various variations of vehicles for recreation or the beach.

We owe him open replicas of Fiat 500 Where d’Autobianchi A112, but also, and above all, convertible versions of sedans, from minivans or from vans ! These Fiat Marea, Opel Zafira, Citroën C4 Picasso and other Nissan Evalia and Fiat Scudo unique in the world are still currently walking around Capri, where they joined the white cabriolet cab fleets, specific to the island.

But Vernagallo did not stop at these models. In the past, the latter has even attacked a mastodon of the car: the Renault Twingo.

Twingo coastline

What better base for a beach car than this friendly frog, with the mouth of an angel and love handles? It must be said that its name (contraction of Twist, Swing et Tango) predestined it from its launch to be a car dedicated to leisure and pleasure.

This did not escape the Italian coachbuilder, who transformed the city car of the 90s into beach car from the 60s, and baptized it ” Beach Twingo “. The doors and headliner removed, he strengthened its structure and equipped with a canvas hood (optional for the roof only or full).

Customers had at the time the choice of exterior and interior colors. A freedom of customization which has given rise to versions all more colorful than each other. The kind of car cute and fun that we would like to have for to walk by the sea or on country roads!
