“This the Bouffort Peardrop, named after its constructor Victor-Albert Bouffort, who was an aeronautical engineer in Paris during WW2. He applied those principles in several one-off vehicles from the late 1940′s up to the mid-1950′s. The Peardrop was also known as the “City-Car”, and featured a Sachs engine. He made a doorless roadster based on the Peugeot 403 in 1957, followed by the Transville in 1959, and the Enville in 1961.”
